We haven't yet, but I'm curious too. I think it will be easier than it is after a vag birth. Im just spotting now, so my time is a comin'!

Everything I can find online says 6 weeks. I think that's a generic "butt covering" timeline, lol. I'm surprised the recommendation is the same for c sec & vag births! I've never ever made it to the 6 week mark, but I've never had any major surgery to compare recovery time to what you might be feeling with your c sec. I can't imagine it's easy!

I have heard that when it doesn't hurt to give it a go, you can....
and I imagine if you are feeling like you want to, then you are probably good to go, but I am no doctor.

yes the recommendation is the same for vaginal and csec birth 6 wks, but some recommend longer for csec cuz the surgery was major and invasive, however-i say if you feel up to it and it doesnt hurt go for it...i did at the 3 wk mark and it hurt so that was it until 4 wk then it was fine and we've done it several times...also wait until you are done bleeding

My personal opinion is that you are good to go when you personally feel ready. If you try and it hurts wait a few days or a week and try again. I have never made it to the 6 week mark but I have never had a section.
