After your c-section, you will either be moved to a recovery room, or directly to a hospital bed in the labor and delivery area, where you will be closely monitored. You will stay there until your healthcare providers feel that you are recovering well - usually in 1 to 2 hours. Then you will be taken to your regular hospital room.
After the procedure, you may shiver or feel sick to your stomach. This may be caused by the anesthesia. If you feel this way, tell a health care provider and he or she can help make you comfortable.
If you were awake for the surgery, you may have some time to get to know your baby, and even begin breast-feeding, while you are in the recovery room.
Remember that your healthcare team wants you to recover without any problems, so be sure to tell them anything that feels abnormal or "not right."
