Hospital List for C-Section Mamas

This spring I will have my third c-section.  At this point I feel like I might be some sort of a mama expert in this field.  No, it’s not the ‘easy way out’…..that is for another post, but there are a few things I like, being a type A personality.  With two older kids in the mix, I can figure out childcare ahead of schedule and wont potentially have to scramble to find someone in the middle of the night. And, the fact that I am a planner, at this point I know exactly what to put into my hospital bag!

While I think most of these items would be benificial for ANY mama in the hospital who just had a baby, these are essentials for c-section mamas.

Pre-Moistened Make-Up Wipes

After your c-section it is pretty difficult to get up and about in the first 24 hours after your surgery.  These wipes were excellent to help me freshen up and get the oil off of my face.  They made me feel a little more human and refreshed.

Disposable Toothbrushes

Same story here. First thing in the morning I need to brush my teeth.  So, this just makes your life a little easier for a while.  While these toothbrushes might not have the exact same results of really brushing with toothpaste and water, it just freshens you up (especially if you have visitors coming)!

Yeti 

These were not around last time I was in the hospital, but I will be bringing it with me this time! I am a huge believer of the Yeti.  I like ice in my drinks (and love hospital ice……I’m not the only one, right)? The styrofoam cups provided at the hospital are okay, but the ice still melts too quickly.  You are not about to go venturing out looking for ice.  Seriously, this will keep your ice frozen all day.  It’s the little things.

Fold-Over Waistband Yoga Pants

You will NEED these.  The softer the better.  I like them, because they can be adjusted to fall on your waste where ever they make you feel comfortable. Probably high above your incision site. In normal life, you might be a low rider pants type of girl…..but now is not the time for fashion. These yoga pants are easy on….easy off…Lots of room (possibly get a size up).

Under Eye Concealer

You will be tired.  And there will be a lot of pictures.  Just a little dab under the eyes and you will look like a new person! I’m not saying you should put a full face of make-up on (but feel free to do so)! I love this brand of under eye concealer.  It is inexpensive and works like a charm!

      1. Some people SWEAR by them. My biggest tip is get up as soon as you can. I’m not saying go for a run! But, the earlier you are moving around, the better your recovery will be. Good Luck!!

      2. It IS surgery and not to be taken lightly, but I believe having a good support ( for me my husband) make getting through the first few days easier. I know some people that said they’ve had a more difficult time then myself…. so I don’t want to speak for anyone else. Best wishes to you AKL in 2017!
