Your Baby & Toddler - - Front Page -

resently, C-sec­tions are recog­nised as a fairly rou­tine and com­mon pro­ce­dure with min­i­mal risk to both mother and baby. How­ever, your body has still un­der­gone ma­jor ab­dom­i­nal surgery and as a re­sult, what you do and when you do post­na­tal ex­er­cise is crit­i­cal to your re­cov­ery.

The fol­low­ing ex­er­cises are safe to do early on, pro­vided you work within your pain or dis­com­fort limits. This means that you stop at a level be­fore you feel any pain and do not push your­self.
