Postnatal health

Didn't take any postnatal vitamins after c section

Hi everyone,
It's been 10months since I had my c section with my son and haven't taken any supplements or vitamins since having him. I've read up that these help recovery of the Cs. I had an emergency Cs and had a complicated pregnancy too add. Since I haven't taken any does this mean that my scar hasn't healed well? Would this affect future situations where it will stop me from growing my family in way future? I do get pain here and there.

Any answers would be appreciated
Thank you

You will have healed fine. Good nutrition, high protein & vitamins etc can help healing, and deficiencies can mean increased healing times, but if you have a good diet in general you will be fine by now.
Not taking vitamins post birth won’t cause you problems adding to you family later. Don’t worry.

What an odd thing to think.
