5 Things That Helped Me Recover From My C-Section Delivery
Did u chk with ur doctor... U must take enough supplements and good diet to bring back ur normal routine.
After any surgery a person becomes weak and vulnerable. Hence, a well balanced nutritious diet is very much required to cope with the requirements of the body in this crucial period.
Why should we take nutritious diet?
Nutrition speeds up your recovery process, rejuvenates tissue building and gives you the required energy to improve your immunity and mobility. Moreover, a new mom's biggest challenge is to breastfeed the newborn, as well as take care of her health personally. Since the initial phase will be much more demanding than expected, a complete nutritious diet is required.
