If you’re having a scheduled c-section you’re probably doing as much research as possible to feel prepared! It’s one thing to prepare for the actual surgery and hospital stay, but it’s also important to be prepared for the recovery period. It’s been almost a year (!) since my c-section. Having gone through both a vaginal delivery and c-section, I can say that the recovery time for the c-section was definitely longer! I didn’t bounce back as quickly and the recovery necessities were a little different.
After some trial and error I finally found some products that worked for me! I might have wasted a little money trying too many products, but now I have a good list to recommend to you guys! Some might seem obvious and some might be something you never though of! Of course don’t forget to pick up some items at the drug store as well such as pads (yes you’ll bleed after a c-section as your body heals), laxatives (no explanation needed) and over the counter painkillers, too!
Here’s my tried and true items for c-section recovery. I’ve linked them to amazon so you can easily get them, but I’m sure there’s plenty of places to pick up these, or similar, items! I actually bought the pants at Target, but they don’t sell them anymore. Trust me, you’ll definitely be thankful to have these pants and underwear!
