Do New Moms Need A Post Pregnancy Belt?

Have you been prescribed any topical ointment for application. Use the foam of your daily bathing soap if the wound is left open n advised by your doctor. Dint rub your sutures just pat dry. Wear comfortable, thin linen as its summer. Try to keep the area dry.use a belt of your waist size. Measure your present size and get a post surgical belt. I wore it in a weeks time post surgery. They give back support and help muscle contraction in the tummy. Also have a word with your doctor

My doctor refused to use an abdominal belt or duppata for now.
She told me not to use any soap which has chemicals instead she said to apply coconut oil before nd after bathing and keep the area dry.
I had my c section on 7th.
