    c-sect recovery: do your stomach muscles ever go back to normal?

    I am booked in for a C-section and want to know if your stomach muscles ever really go back to normal afterward? Anything special I should do in recovering weeks to help the process along?

    my stomach muscles aren't 100% back to normal 5 years on from my c/s. no matter how many sit-ups i do, sometimes the muscles just dont rejoin if that makes sense!
    after your op. do not try to do any form of exercise, rest until you feel able to start being a little bit more active. the area will hurt for a while so let time go and work on yourself when appropriate/ after all it ain't no biggie when your darling child is in your arms.

    Try pilates it's really good for the stomach muscles =) I gave birth 8.5 months ago but now my stomach muscles is more tone up than ever with pilates classes.

    Best of luck.
