After cesarean, many women are confronted with the fact that their stomach leaves much to be desired. I have a transverse suture and over his stomach as if hanging. Get rid of this problem is almost impossible. I can not be called fat, and over the summer I took off a few kilos, but I have been struggling with the stomach for many years (if we consider that the first operation was 10 years ago).
Being in the maternity hospital, I already asked the doctors about when I could go in for sports. I must say that I was very frightened by the seam, it seemed that he might disperse or something else would happen to him. In fact, there is a sense in fear, because Caesarean section is a lane operation and you must treat your body with care.
It is undesirable to begin intensive load earlier than your baby will knock 4-6 months. Before that, you can perform gentle exercises. Shows walking with a stroller, Kegel exercises and associated with breathing.
Even if you were leading an active lifestyle before pregnancy, I would not recommend setting records on the first day of training. Start practicing gradually and listen to your body.
Exercises in the first days after surgery
Yet and immediately after the surgery, you can start doing something. At this point, your task is to restore blood circulation. In general, all doctors advise not to lie down after the operation and start moving as early as possible. It hurts, but you have to walk, move your arms and legs.
In addition to walking along the corridor, you can quietly start practicing lying on the bed. Bend and unbend the fingers and toes, pull out the feet and rotate them. You can also alternately strain different muscles: buttocks, legs, arms.
When the pain in the suture area subsides a bit, breathing exercises can begin. Lying on the bed, pull the belly in while inhaling, at this point, press your back and buttocks to the bed. Count to 4 and relax. If such a load is too painful, try simply to inflate the abdomen while inhaling and drawing in as you exhale.
Exercises in the first 6 weeks
It seems to me that in the first 6 weeks you will not have the opportunity to reflect on the topic of special physical exercises. At least I had it that way. The only thing I thought about was how to sleep more. And I remembered about the stomach a bit later.
Exercises after 6 weeks
When after the operation a lot of time passes, in principle, you can do any kind of physical activity, but of course you can look at your condition.
For example, lying on your back, lift your upper torso from the floor or do the well-known exercise bike.
The main thing is that during the sessions there should be no pain. It is also worth talking on this topic with your gynecologist.
