Dear BRohini, Congratulations for having delivered a baby through C Section.
I appreciate your eagerness to do yogasanas. You can contact your Yoga Master and follow his/her guidelines. Be careful and be patient. Please don't do Yoga practice without the guidance or supervision of your Yoga Master.

All the while, listen to your body; resist the urge to push yourself too much.


The key point to be noted here is maintaining consistency without trying to push yourself too much, but rather remain within tolerable limits; remember to always listen to your body.

If you experience any pain at all, stop the exercise. It may take a little while to restore those stomach muscles back to normal, so don't be too hard on yourself. You must exercise a certain amount of caution in your exercises till your stitches heal, working into your exercises gradually.

Hi Rohini,

For minimum period of 3 months, you please do not exert yourself, by doing any exercises.

You should not even lift any heavy things also (not even heavy cooker).

You should not bend, or sit on the floor and get up immediately.

These exertion may result in the loosening of the stitches and loosening of the muscles resulting in incisional hernia.

So, you should be very careful for the first three months of any surgery. During the next three months also, you should be little careful, and may do very very mild exersices.
