  • 6 weeks for regular exercise, but ask your dr before rigorous exercise!

  • I think the general consensus is 6 weeks.

  • 2 months is reliable.

  • Generally, 6 weeks, but I know I started walking about 2 weeks after my c-section. I had been very active during my pregnancy, though. I wasn't exactly zipping along, but I got moving. Ask your doc/midwife for what's right for you.
