We don’t usually learn about recovering from a Caesarean section until we are IN recovery. That’s not what we recommend. This can leave you blindsided, confused and disheartened. If you listened to our last ep, you’d know that caesarean section is NOT rare SO good birth prep means we need to include how to recover from Caesarean section right?

In this ep we talk about:

  • The hours just after a caesarean section
  • What happens in the hospital in the first few days
  • Pain and pain relief
  • Moving after a Caesarean section
  • What to do when you need to cough, sneeze and go to the toilet
  • What to expect in the first 6 weeks.


Why did we start this podcast? Well we think there is a barrier for women to get EXPERT pregnancy info that is practical, relatable and easy to understand.

Dr Pat has helped 1000s of women have their babies and through this we know that this kind of information given to a woman at the right time can totally change her experience of pregnancy and birth.

We invite you to be our part of our family over on Instagram @grow_my_baby or do our free pregnancy quiz at
