    When to start excercising after c-section

    Hi all! I had a c-section about 5 weeks ago and would like to start my regular exercise regime again which includes yoga, swimming and jogging. I have yet to consult my obs about when I am able to start and would like to know about what experiences you have.

    Impressed that you can find the time!

    There's no rule on this. My docs told me to do as much as I felt able as soon as I could.
    Just don't push yourself, and if you feel pain, stop immediately.
    I guess it will take a little while to build up your fitness again.

    I had one 7 weeks ago and started exercising last week. I saw my Obs at 3 weeks and he said i could do whatever i wanted (even back then) and just to stop if i felt pain. He laughed when i asked if the stitches would rupture. So i guess 5 weeks is more than fine if you feel up to it.
