I keep hearing different answers to this. How long after having a baby does it take for your body to fully heal? is it a year is it 2 or is it longer?

I had a c-section.  I felt normal again after about 3 weeks. I know I wasn't fully healed though.  I think I've heard that it takes about a year.

I said 2 years. I had a c-section and you feel numb down there for a really long time (dr said 18months, but I'm sure it was longer.) You also cannot have a vaginal birth for years after you have a c-section. Some places you can have a vbac after a certain amount of time, but in my valley, they don't ever let you have a vbac. You have to go to Seattle or somewhere else if you want that.

It depends what your talking about.. Your body is definitely not going to look the same if your talking about your vag.. It took months for me before I felt back to normal

I have been told it takes 2 years minimum to get all your internal organs back to normal.  Which is why doctors recommend that kids be 3 years apart.
