Did you ask why? I couldn't feel anything from hips down which I take to be normal?

I didn't ask why because i didn't really know what to expect, when we do become pregnant with #2 i will book up a debrief at the hospital so i understand everything from my section.

I asked to see my notes after having Jack to understand more as to why i had the section. It helped me to understand and move on and prepare myself for round 2 x

I think the choice is up to the surgeon. All the girls that had a csec on the day I was in were stapled by the same surgeon. The stapling part didnt bother me it was that he didnt put enough staples in so the wound didnt seal up...

Thanks for the welcome girls. xxx
Its interesting to know that different surgeons choose different ways, i would definitely be asking next time!

How did you find breastfeeding after your section? I'm determined to BF next time. When i went in for the section i was numb from the neck down so couldnt move my arms or feel my chest rising it made me panic a bit and it took a while for the feeling to come back in my arms so i couldnt really hold her properly for quite a while after. I'm not sure why this was as most people i know who had sections said they could move their arms

If I am reaslly honest I have found breastfeeding a doddle. I know many people struggle with it though after a csection and I find that heartbreaking when you want to but cant for whatever reason. It took nearly 8 days for my milk to come in properly but I was on so many painkillers for my wound that the pain that is normally experienced in those first few days completely evaded me. xx

I'm not sure about the numbness - I thought it was chest and below - I held Olivia for a while whilst they were putting me back together. I would of been petrified if I couldnt move my arms

I was the same after my section i managed to bf fine. Took a lot of perseverance at the start to find a comfy position x x

Your welcome Heidi - Clairebear is right that the hardest thing is finding a comfortable position. I learnt early on that feeding whilst lying down was a life saver !!!
