Congratulations on the birth of your baby! While this is an exciting time for you and your family, a cesarean is major surgery and you may be feeling sore and tired. New mothers like you need and deserve extra support during this special time of birth and healing. Women who have experienced either a planned or an unplanned cesarean respond to the surgery in very different ways. Physically, some women heal very quickly while others report that recovery took weeks or months. Women's feelings about their cesareans range from happiness to depression. Each woman heals and grows into her new role of mother at her own pace and it is important not to put time limits on this process.
