My three must-haves after C-Section
1) Help – easily my number one ‘must-have’ – but I don’t think it matters where the source of help comes from – ie partner taking time off work, to mother coming to stay and even paid cleaning help.
2) Comfortable Underwear – both for personal comfort and to help recovery. I would not have a c-section in the future without a supply of C-Panty underwear.
3) Knowledge – understanding whether the pain and tingling sensations around the incision were normal or whether they required medical attention. I had some worries, only to be told all good. Luckily I never had any complications, but if you are unsure of anything – get it looked at! I had a great book on c-section recovery and also used the internet for information. Both were invaluable.
