Re: how soon after a c-section can you start to exercise?

I would wait until after you have been seen by your doctor to do anything but walking (so 6-8wks typically) and then just listen to your body.
Me too. I only had one c-section, but I started walking about two weeks out. Seriously, I think the first time I went it was a block, and I was spent, so just take it slow and listen to your body. I wouldn't do more than walking until after the check up either.
