How To Recover From A C-Section (Physically And Emotionally)

Take It Slow
Your OB/GYN or midwife will likely provide recommendations for your level of physical activity for each week of your recovery. The most important recommendation, however, is to take it slow.

Set your pace to calm and careful, especially during the initial days post-surgery.
