Can I Wear A Corset After A Cesarean Section?
Good afternoon, a month ago I had a cesarean section because my baby died in the womb at 7 months of pregnancy. Is it okay to wear a corset for now or wait a few months? Or not at all. R nThank you
Hello Yhanti, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically in the world of medicine there has never been a suggestion to use a corset / stagen / octopus after delivery. If the purpose of using these tools is to shrink the stomach, then its use is not necessary and is not recommended because the stomach will shrink by itself along with the reduced size of the uterus and reduced abdominal fat after childbirth. The use of a corset / stagen / octopus can actually cause discomfort, pain, and can even cause nausea in some women. Women who give birth by cesarean section are not recommended to use a corset / stagen / octopus because it can interfere with wound healing operations.
To help shrink the stomach again, you can try to eat healthy foods in sufficient quantities. You are not advised to go on too strict a diet because nutrition is very important to help your recovery and healing your surgical wounds. You are also advised to exercise regularly, because in addition to being able to increase your metabolism and help you lose weight, exercise can also help make you more relaxed and reduce stress. Get enough sleep and rest at least 7-9 hours a day.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
