When women have a caesarian section (c-section) there are many precautions she should take after the surgery. The precautions are to avoid any unnecessary complications, such as tearing of stitches.
Women who have had a C-section should avoid lifting anything heavier than her baby for six weeks. This gives the incision time to heal and reduces the risk of tearing the incision. Women should not lift her other children or the baby in its car seat.
Women should also avoid driving, going up and down stairs and doing any strenuous exercise until the incision has been allowed time to heal. This usually takes about six weeks.
It is necessary to follow these precautions in order to heal appropriately from the surgery.
