Recovering from a c-section is no joke! Healing after a c-section birth takes longer than recovering from a vaginal delivery, and may take a different approach. As a c-section mom myself, here are my favorite items for c-section recovery:

1.AltroCare Postpartum & Post Surgery Abdominal Binder

C-section binder

A postpartum binder should feel like a gentle hug. This one is soft and offers enough support without too much pressure.


2.Pavilia Soft Plush Robe

Postpartum robe

This robe is so soft and lightweight! It is like being wrapped in a hug, which we all could use postpartum.


3. Colorfulkoala Leggings 


These leggings are buttery soft and come in tons of color options. They rise above the the incision, offering support without too much compression.

4.Takeya Water Bottle

Water bottle

Proper hydration can help us heal. Plus this keeps your beverages hot or cold! The leak-proof straw lid is also a gamechanger.


5.Colace Stool softener


Those first couple of postpartum bowel movements are a doozy. Especially after a c-section. A stool softener can help move things along. Be sure to discuss with your practitioner before taking.


6.AmazerBath Toilet Stool

Help yourself out! Get your body into a better position on the toilet to help reduce straining and bearing down on your pelvic floor.


7. Geniani Heating Pad

Heating pad

A heating pad can help soothe your aches and pains postpartum and provide some relief for incision scar pain. 


8.Boppy Pillow

Boppy pillow

I love the Boppy pillow so much! It sits high over your incision bringing the baby closer to you for feeding which helps alleviate pressure onto your core and incision. You can also wrap it around you as a brace for when you cough or sneeze, helping to protect your core and pelvic floor.


9. Frida Mom C-Section Kit

All of the items in the frida postpartum kit
This Frida kit INCLUDES: 1 Upside Down Peri Bottle for bathroom trips, 4 Disposable C-Section Postpartum Underwear, 1 Postpartum Abdominal Support Binder, 10 Skip The Shower Wipes, 4 Silicone Scar Patches. Plus, keep it all together in the included Bathroom Essentials Bag and comfy Grip Socks.

10.Disposable Underwear 

Disposable underwear

Disposable underwear are convenient for postpartum bleeding and leakage. Highly rated, they sit above your incision and provide lots of comfort and absorbency. 


  1. Kindred Bravely Nightshirt

Kindred nightshirt

The material on this nightshirt is SO SOFT! It is great for when you want to feel put together but don’t want anything pushing on your abdomen or incision. It is loose, buttons down for nursing, and has pockets! 


  1. TrekProof Hot & Cold Therapy Wrap

Therapy ice pack

A cold compress can help alleviate some swelling, while heat can soothe aches and pains. You get the option for both with this belt!


  1. Cauniss Cotton High Waisted Underwear

High waisted underwear

Cotton material is so important for our vaginal health! We need to breathe. These are super soft and high rise, so the waistband will sit above your incision while offering light support.


  1. Ziraki Support Pillow

Gray husband pillow


It is hard to get yourself seated comfortably on a couch or bed after a c-section, not to mention getting up after! Prop yourself up with this pillow to give your core some stability.
