  • It could be physically possible, depending on your birthing experience- but it's not safe, under any circumstance... AT ALL.

  • It's possible but not very safe. You need 6 weeks to heel. After a birth of a baby you need to give your body time to rest

  • 6 weeks to heal completely, but that's not necessary before returning to normal activities. Doctors recommend not doing any lifting, excessive walking or any exercise for two weeks after birth. But it's not like walking from house to car then car to classroom is going to hurt you. Just don't go up stairs, use an elevator (all buildings have to have one for handicapped persons), and don't walk around campus. If you have to walk more than you would for just being around the house, then I wouldn't advise going.

  • I was in college when I had my first. Only part time on a MWF schedule. I had her on a Tuesday night. Yes I had attended my classes on Monday. My water broke Monday night. I ended up with a c-section Tuesday night and was back in class when she was 12 days old. There was nothing unsafe about it. I was dropped off at the door of each building and walked up one flight of stairs and sat in a chair for 55 minutes then walked back down the stairs. How is that any harder than doing laundry?
