Get plenty of rest. Your body needs time to heal from a C-section, so it's important to rest as much as you can.

This means napping during the day, going to bed early at night, and avoiding strenuous activities.

Ask for help. Don't be afraid to ask for help from your partner, family, and friends.

They can help with household chores, childcare, and other tasks so you can focus on your recovery.

Manage your pain. Your doctor will prescribe pain medication to help you manage your discomfort.

Take it as prescribed, and don't hesitate to call your doctor if you're still in pain.

Eat a healthy diet. Eating a healthy diet will help your body heal and give you the energy you need to care for your new baby.

Drink plenty of fluids. Drinking plenty of fluids will help prevent dehydration and constipation.

Avoid heavy lifting. Don't lift anything heavier than your baby for the first six weeks after your C-section.
