  • I had a 100% natural birth (no drugs no nothing) and I felt amazing afterwards. I was up and walking immediately. I showered and changed and ate within an hour...Was having sex 10 days later with no pain!

  • It depends on the person it took 4 weeks for me and those who have a c section it's 6 weeks.

    Just bc you feel fine on the outside doesn't mean you are done healing remember the inside is still healing so listen to your doctor and hold or tell you dh/so to hold back. Until love
