How long after C did you swim?

I will have my 3rd cesarean in the beginning of June. We have a pool and I have 2 children who will be taking lessons in it and wanting to be in it so it is more of a concern with watching them vs "swimming". If you have any experience, let me know.

  • I had a June baby and swam as soon as I stopped bleeding which was about 5 weeks.

  • Haven't hit the pool yet, but I waited 6 weeks before taking a bath.
