 Frequently Asked Questions

Q: My sister-in-law delivered a premature baby last month through cesarean. What should her diet be? What precautions should she take?

Pratima (New York, U.S.A.)

A: The following precautions must be followed after a caesarean section, in order to prevent increase in intra-abdominal pressure which may promoting inadequate healing of the stitch line. Avoid lifting heavy weights, avoid coughing hard and avoid consuming anything that may lead to constipation - at least for the first 4-6 weeks. As regards the diet, an average weight woman requires approximately 2800 KCAL/day during lactation. The diet should be balanced, rich in proteins, vitamins, minerals and carbohydrates. She should take adequate amount of milk--3 glasses a day. Iron and calcium supplementation maybe taken if required. Six weeks following delivery, the patient may start postnatal exercises to strengthen abdominal muscles. She should not conceive for at least another 2 years.
