Driving After a C-Section

There are many misconceptions about pregnancy and about C-sections, probably the biggest one is when you can drive after having a C-section.

The great myth is you can’t drive for six weeks after a C-section, but this may not be true!

So, when can you drive? The important part about this is, there is no one hard and fast rule when it comes to resuming driving after a C-section. Recovery varies significantly from person-to-person so it may be that people vary in their ability to drive, taking anywhere from two to six weeks, typically people are able to drive at the lower end of that spectrum at about two weeks.

The important point again is this is a self-assessment on the part of the patient, to find out more information about when you can start driving again after a C-section, watch the video below.
