Format: Paperback
I had an unplanned caesarean and although it was all done very well there was not much info afterwards (when I left the hospital) so I ordered this book - I was very surprised how few books there seemed to be on the subject since something like 1 in 5 women has one! It's great, I had faith in it as soon as I read a really spot-on description of how the stitches feel! It has information on what is done and how, the scar healing, what to avoid (lifting etc) and then lots of info on exercises you can do as you recover, starting from day one in the hospital (really gentle tiny movements!) through to months later. Really pleased with it, wish the hospital had mentioned it or even given it out to anyone having a c-section. It also talks about planned (elective) caesareans. Great book.

14 of 15 people found the following review helpful By J. C. Lyrakos on 7 May 2009
Format: Paperback
This book was bought just before my 3rd section and I wish I had bought it before. The book details appropriate exercises with a time-frame and gives advice on aftercare re the scar etc. Overall, it is an informative book and written in a way that is not patronising. My only criticism is that the information on eating healthily is rather sparse and as a mum who normally gains a stone in weight through breastfeeding I was looking for more meal plans and ideas for a balanced diet tailored to a breastfeeding mum. However, it's worth it's weight in gold for the exercise advice.

Although having previously had a caesarean, I was booked for an elective one second time round and wished I had had this book then. I bought it just before the birth of my second and found the book covered subjects that where not mentioned elsewhere and it gave me peace of mind with how I could expect to feel and the exercises tailored to the stage of your recovery were great. It gave me the confidence to get up out of bed and get moving and I was home within 48 hours of the operation, and now nearly 8 weeks later feel back to my usual self.

The book is good for women who are afraid of c section. Contains day by day recovery, recommended exercises and recipes. It makes c section less scary but also reminds that it's still an operation.

The only book I could find. The exercises are very useful. A shame this information isn't provided by hospitals. Its expensive for the size of the book, but there is no competition!
