Hi all pregnancy is a beautiful phase of life. Today many of us almost 50percent people undergo csection due to many reasons. I am one among you.
It is a little hard time for few since you are not allowed to take your baby out till the baby is 40days old. Baby needs to be breastfed for at least 6months for its well-being. And no sex strictly till you complete your postpartum checkup. It might be a worrisome for few.
Your incision may take some time to heal so taking rest never hurts. Always use a antiseptic lotion and clean the area once your stitches are removed by your GP. Always keep it dry and clean to avoid further complications.
After delivery depression is very common in among 80percent of women. Things tend to be normal but your hormones sudden drop may play a vital role in mood swings and your are required to be awake in nights as the baby needs to be fed every 3hrs. So sleepless nights also cause depression. Few needs counselling as they weep all time which is not good for a just operated women. This may make them sick . If you feel so down you can deliberately share your feelings with your family especially your husband. Since talking over can make you feel comfortable.
You should be very careful when you take tablets. Other than prescribed tablet you should never take tablets on your own. since tablets may pass over through breastmilk which may cause issues in the baby like diarrhea. So always contact your GP before taking tabs for your health issues or other. This should be followed till you continue breastfeeding.
Let your GP know if your bleeding has not stopped after 6weeks of time since there may be a issue .usually bleeding stops by 5weeks time. Any internal issues or incision issue may cause bleeding after 6week time.
