Diet, Exercise Tips for Mothers After Cesarean Delivery

By Pooja Sharma Subscribe to RSS | March 14th 2012 | Views:

Convalescing after having a child takes time, even more if you’ve had a Caesarean. Here’s how to take care of yourself so you nurse back to health, and feel recovered, faster.

Delegate: Now that you’re home from the hospital, assign the tasks as much as feasible to your partner, relatives, nanny, baby sitters or good friends. Focus on your baby and your own self. It is imperative that you stay mobile and dynamic, but with long breaks in between the day, to avoid any kind of physical stress because as it is your body is very vulnerable. By all means avoid doing any needless cleaning and scrubbing.

Avoid Lifting: By all means, keep away from lifting anything heavier than your baby for at least six weeks so that your belly muscles have a chance to get back to their usual alignment. Your belly will also suffer less tension if you get up by gently sloping on your side first followed by drawing your knees towards your bosom, then sitting up and using your hands to push yourself up to stand erect.

Effortless Exercises: Pay attention to your body, it will tell you when you are ready. If you can’t do a great deal of exercises after your Caesarean then you might start with subtle workouts like pelvic floor exercises. These may feel painful initially but they also support your back and your front. After a couple of months, you can start with an assortment of aerobic exercises and toning. Walking, jogging and swimming are all great preferences.

Watch Your Diet: Consume a variety of nutrient rich foods including fruits, vegetables, dairy products, meat and fish. Taking healthy diet may help you feel better and invigorated. If you are breast feeding, seek your doctor’s advice for information about the ideal diet for both you and your breast fed infant. Drink at least 8 to 10 cups of water everyday. Avoid consuming too much alcohol and quit smoking for sometime.

Take Care Of Yourself: This is a slightly different phase of your life. The C section might take a toll on your mental as well as physical wellbeing if you do not pay the required attention to yourself. Laugh as much as you can. Motherhood is a godsend blessing so savor every moment completely. You might have to undergo postpartum depression, feeling weepy and sad frequently. Conquer this situation by reaching out to your loved ones for help. Go for soothing and mood elevating massages and spas.

In the end if you still feel bogged down by the labors of motherhood, remember this saying by Jodi Picoult (Perfect Match),

“Sometimes when you pick up your child you can feel the map of your own bones beneath your hands, or smell the scent of your skin in the nape of his neck. This is the most extraordinary thing about motherhood - finding a piece of yourself separate and apart that all the same you could not live without.”

Happy Motherhood to All the Mother’s
