Hey, yall!! I have missed alot.. My tab on my interent lost the P.org button so I havent been on here in along time. I see some new preggies!! Congrats..
I was looking for ideas on mommas that had c/s! I have had 2 but its like my brain has lost the aftermath somewhere and I forgot what would be really helpful in recovery..
My sister in law is having a c/s next week. It will be her first baby so its def exciting. She has placenta previa so no choice. I would love to be able to give her tips, and be able to help her as much as possible but I really dont want to be in her face.. So just trying to think of something I can do or give her to make her healing better.. Any ideas are appreciated! TIA!
Mom of 3 beautiful babes!

I've been told this stuff is awesome: http://www.earthmamaangelbaby.com/po...ing-salve.html
Good luck to her!
Boppy or other pillows. It was great to hold against the incision. Helped with just holding Aiden period since I felt so worn out.
Frozen meals that can be reheated or tons of friends/family to feed you.
Abdominal binder. Mine didn't fit till a week pp, but it was fantastic once it fit.
The most helpful thing (that I didn't get) would be just someone to offer their help however needed - grocery store fun, cooking food, running a load of laundry, vacuuming the house, etc. Normal things that get overlooked because everyone seems to think you need help with the baby when what you really need help with is everything else in the world!
Once my incision was deemed "healed" at 6 weeks I started using bio oil on it and you can barely see the scar now!
Stacy - CVS has a generic bio oil. It's a white box with orange on it. Works great for the stitches scar my DS has on his forehead, in fact you can barely tell he ever had a huge gash there!
EVERY Mom wants frozen meals and help with errands IMHO! If your area has peapod (Stop&Shop) they can pick out their own groceries and they are delivered. You could get a gift card for the Peapod service. We did that for a co-worker when his wife miscarried.
