One of the biggest inconveniences after a C-section is the fact that driving is not recommended initially.
You have just had major abdominal surgery and will be tender around the scar area. Your body needs time to heal before being fit enough to drive a car.
The big question of course is When can I drive after my C-section?
Many say no driving for six weeks.
In my personal case my obstetrician told me to wait until I felt ready and when I did feel ready he said to keep it to short, local journeys. I eventually felt ready after three weeks and took his advice to keep it local. I slowly built it up.
Of course if it takes six weeks to feel comfortable then wait six weeks. If it takes ten weeks then wait ten. There are no hard and fast rules for C-section recovery. Everyone recovers differently and only you and your medical practitioner will be able to assess when it is safe to start driving again.
