  • You will feel numb for a few months. It is very normal! I've had 3 c-sections and the last one was 2 yrs ago and there are still spots that are numb. Just take it easy and you will be just fine!
    Congrats on your new little one!

  • i've had 2 c-sections and I'm still numb, the first was 2 years ago and it never went away. The last was in January and now I'm numb in a little bit bigger of an area. The docs say that soemtimes it never goes away, but usually it does. It will take a few months! After all, they did cut through all you nerves... that's why it's numb and normal.
