Cesarean Section

Recovering From a Cesarean Section

Be sure to rest as much as possible after your cesarean section. It can take from four to six weeks to recover fully. Your doctor will plan a postoperative checkup after delivery to see how well you are healing.
Your incision may make it difficult to lift things for a while. You might want to plan for some help caring for your child, especially if you have other children. Your healthcare providers may have some suggestions about short-term help for you and your baby following the cesarean section.
