First of all take complete rest. No lifting heavy loads. Lift your baby also only when you are sitting /lying. Also when you get up from bed try to tilt a little on your side and then get up slowly. Keep applying the ointments or medicines that your doc has given for the stitches and simply TAKE REST. Stitches take a around 3 to 6 months to heal completely from within. That's what my gynaecologist told me.

Prithvi Balaji

Charu is correct. Please be careful. opening of stitches are not good and especially do not try to do any exercise at all. till atleast you complete 6 months

Sonali Shivlani

You need to take complete rest, avoid lifting and any kind of bending movements. Please visit your doctor immediately to ensure there is no pus or infection and if re stitching is required.
