Kavita Sahany

Doctor told be to take small; walks after 10 days else the joints will get freezed...I used to walk little bit but dint do much till two months time ...
Don't stress yourself see how much rest your body wants to..avoid heavy tasks though ..

Rachita Choudhary

Take rest for at least a month. Your body needs to recover from surgery as well as the fatigue from sleepless nights, and breastfeeding sessions

Harneet (clanpedia)

There is no need for lying down unless doctor has asked u too. The more u get up and move around, better will be ur recovery. Walk after evry meal. Try and pick up baby and move a bit, it will give a change to both of u

More u keep sitting and lying down, it will take more time for ur body to recover

Aditi Ahuja

It can change from person to person. After coming back from hospital take bed rest for at least a week. That is needed. Don't exert much apart from moving here and there a bit and handling the baby. Then gradually start increasing your activity. In 2o days time you must be able to do many things.

Taheseen Asif

Take rest for atleast 2 months. do take gentle walks as often as you can. The movement will help your body heal and prevent from constipation.drink plenty of water.


I had c section on 14th. I am feeling fit and fine so I don't lie down whole day. But whenever I sit or walk, my elders advise me to sleep every time.
