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.
