There are belts available in the market to support a c section incision. You can wear this post the surgery from the second day. The doctor will allow regular belt or cotton sari generally post three weeks but please use after a check up. You can start full fledged exercises at three months post surgery. However you can start with a walking program at around 45 days. Eat healthy and exercise your stomach and shape will come back to normal.
