Having a C-section?

We know this doesn’t seem to make sense, but whether you have a vaginal or C-section delivery, you’ll experience most of the same postpartum symptoms. 

So . . . your numa kit will be your bff either way. :)

The Good News

If you deliver via C-section, you’re less likely to experience hemorrhoids or perineum pain postpartum. Both of these symptoms result from pushing during a vaginal delivery.

 

The Not-So-Good News

You’ll have a scar from the incision which will be sore.

There’s a small chance (~5%) of your scar becoming infected. If your incision is red, swollen, or leaking discharge, contact your healthcare provider.

 

What To Do About It

Rest as much as possible. It’s easier said than done, but it’s important to help your body heal.

For pain relief, ask your healthcare provider. They may recommend a heating pad and pain relievers like Tylenol, Ibuprofen.
