After your Caesarean Section your doctor will staple your incision closed with anywhere from 10-30 staples! In the hospital, the nurses will constantly check and care for your incision, but once you are home it is up to you.
-Your doctor will probably recommend cleaning the incision daily: use peroxide (alcohol burns!) and an antibiotic ointment
-Keep plenty of gauze handy, it helps to create a barrier of gauze between your incision and your underwear
-Keep a check for any redness, itching or swelling. If you notice any of these, notify your doctor
