Recovery process after the Ceasarean section

A woman who gave birth by Caesarean section,, passes the same process of recovery, as a woman after giving birth vaginally. During the first week struggling with the same symptoms: exhaustion, cramps of the uterus, breast soreness and swelling and bleeding.

But after giving birth vaginally perineal hygiene is paramount, after cesarean section - a particular concern for post-operative wound healing. Immediately after surgery the wound in the abdomen assumes a special dressing that, if necessary, can be changed only by the midwife or doctor. It will be removed in the first or second postoperative day. The area surrounding the scar, can cause local pain - this is normal. Worryingly, however, are: redness, tenderness, or purulent wounds and fever. Necessarily report them to your doctor.

Do not soak thedressing, which was put immediately after surgery. Therefore, cover the dressing with aqua resistant film when taking a shower. When the wound heals, wash the scar with soap and water - odorless, hypoallergenic for babies. Do this 2 - 3 times a day, and when you sweat - even more frequently. Gently but thoroughly dry the wound, preferably with a disposable towel. During wound healing wear lightweight clothing made of natural fabrics.

The concept of a large family

The concept of large family - like many processes, marriage and family life - has been through many changs is in the last few decades. Even in the mid-twentieth century, the family in terms of fertility was divided in half, ie those which were brought up only one child, and complete. From a psychological and pedagogical point of view it was believed that the absence of siblings has a negative impact on the only child, which might perpetuate a self-centered temperament, due to overprotection of parents, or excessive expectations and demands from the only child. No children's environment in families with one child was also believed to be negative in the sense of development, because the peer influence is importnat in developing the selfless personality of the child.
