Asked a question 4 months ago

I had a C section delivery 1 month back. Should I wear back support belt? What are the benefits of wearing it and when should I start wearing it?

Where am I?

Hi Shilpa .Use of belt completely depends on your operating doctor and what he recommends. Usually the belt is given immediately post c section on day 2 itself and is recommended to wear for a period of 6 weeks.  The belt basically helps for giving support and pain reduction.

Since its already 1 month I would suggest you to consult a physiotherapist and do a detailed evaluation of your abdomen, sutures, diastasis rectii , so that you can start exercising for your core muscles.
