Recovering from a C-Section

by Nikki Montgomery

I mentioned in a previous post that my husband and I were given the choice between a VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Cesarean) or a 2nd C-section. Our doctor strongly encouraged us to do another C-section because it is safer for me and baby. 

C-section recovery stinks! It takes much longer to recover from a major surgery than it does a vaginal delivery, but I want to do what's best for our baby. My doctor says that the recovery should be easier this time because they will hopefully perform the surgery before I actually go into labor. 

Here is an OBGYN talking about C-section recovery:

We find out today what we're having! Tomorrow we meet with the doctor to talk about the Ultrasound results and then we get to schedule the C-section so we'll know exactly when this baby is going to arrive!!
