After C section...

I have heard many things about belly type bands that help heal and make moving easy and bind. I want something that will stay put when i go up and down the stairs and is not stiff. Any ideas?

  • hmm . . I never heard of these things . . find anything you can!!! My recovery was quite difficult, but if your c-section is planned, it will probably be easier. Good Luck Mama!

  • I had an unplanned c-section. I healed just fine (about 2 weeks for the outside to heal). I didn't need pain meds or anything, I survived off of ibuprofen.

    My house is three stories, I had no problem going up and down, and had no bands.

    Trust me though, if you have a c-section, you'll be sore, but the pain doesn't bother you once you lay your eyes on that beautiful baby. Just take it easy :)
