1. Take probiotics and eat fermented food.
Antibiotics given to a mother during surgery can impact the healthy bacteria in the gut. Because of this, a C-section mother should ask her doctor about probiotics, or live bacteria, to help restore healthy gut flora. This can help improve immunity and even prevent diarrhea. Fermented food can also have similar benefits.
2. Go for walks.
Once your doctor allows you to start exercising, take short walks for about 30 minutes at a time. Walking can release gas, increase circulation, reduce the risk for blood clots, improve bowel functions, and help the body to recover. In some cases, a mother might be recommended to go for short walks as soon as her first day back home.
