19 Moms Share What Their C-Section Was Really Like

"After my C-section, I couldn’t get out of bed for 24 hours because they had me on magnesium for a blood pressure issue. Once I could get up, I had little to no pain and was back walking around almost instantly. Other than not lifting over ten pounds the first couple of weeks, it was like nothing had happened to me. I was so scared because I had heard the horror stories of C-section recovery, but I was surprised at how easy it was for me."
