i posted this on pregnancy board but got no luck was wondering if i might have some more luck here. My ELCS is booked in 11 days time and i was wondering if there are any supplements i should be taking before or after to help me with the healing/recovery. This is DC3. DC2 was an EMCS after doing the whole hog (got to 10 cms, pushed for an hour, ventoused then EMCS) and my recovery, perhaps unsuprisingly, was quite difficult. i would be really grateful for any responses- doing a health food shop run today ! thanks

I'm interested in the same, only things I can think of so far are Arnica and rescue remedy.

I didn't bother with anything but took to massaging my scar with my fingers (they are normally a bit lumpy) once the outer bit was healed. Have a lovely small, flat scar now.
