Dear all,will be having c-section on 22nd.
1)will the hospital food be sufficient,do i need to take some tonic soups too other than the red dates drink?
2)should i bring along a few sachets of herbal bath and use it whilst in the hospital for dry cleaning of myself?
3)will hospital(MT E,single) have kettle to boil hot water?
Hi, I had 2 c-section. I didn't bath for a week coz of the bandage, I didn't want to get it wet. So I just use a wet towel to clean myself.
Just to let you know, because your tummy was sliced, you will feel pain for about 2 days after the op. So take pain killer after you r off the anesthetic, trust me, it is quite painful. Once you are off the drip and comfortable, try to move n walk. Though it is painful when you first try to stand, this pain will go away in a very short while and you will feel much better after that.
I went to Mt A, food n water was plenty. Depends on what you like/believe, I didn't have any special food/herbs/red date water after i give birth. I ate normal food, same as my family members.

ohhhhhhh.......ic will take note and try to ask around again.
I tink they will have what you need, other dan herbs?
i Doubt you wil have the energy to bathe, until you reach home n rest more. I didnt bathe till the mid of the 2nd week.
My bandage was rather painful only after i reach home n start to tc of baby myself. COs i move alot n hardly get rest. But still i didnt take any med from doctors, i threw all away as i was BF so i stayed away frm MEdications.
i no energy to shower.. very tired, you know why cos my baby keep wanting to drink milk. keep breastfeeding n kept on looking at him.. so tired till morning dan sleep.
only shower during my 2nd week
1st week only can wipe.. until i canot stand my smelly hair n body!
For me I stayed in Kandang Kerbau Hospital and I hardly ate their food, because I am a picky eater and their food sucks. So most of the time I eat food that my mother cook and then my husband wil bring it over for me.
eh?? my stay in Kandang Kerbau Hospital for that 1.5 day was soOOoooo good....got menu to choose food somemore....like hotel stay....5 meals a day ....can choose western or chinese style very good ....
the first dish they served me immediately after i delivered was ginger fried rice....not bad ....
eh??? wrong wrong....they served me mee sua immed after i delivered.....but how to eat???? Badly needed sleep coz whole body was still shivering/shaking after the pushing.....in the end the mee sua wasted.....when i woke up after 4 hours later then started eating the fried rice....just nice lunch hour....kekekekekkee
I stayed in Thomson Medical Center.

before preg, i eat very little per meal but have many meals a day.
during preg, i eat like there's no tomorrow.
after preg, i'm back to before preg. eat very little per meal but have many meals a day.
so after preg, my husband had to finish my hospital food. lucky it tastes yummy. i think he's happy that i cant finish the food.
hahah!!!! wow!!!! i loved to eat before preggy and so dear husband and I always go buffet.
But totally hate it when preggy when dear son...
I ate only lemon biscuits and coke with lemon slices. I even hate the smell of rice!
& now preggy with dear daughter, I LOVED to eat, esp fish, rice (normally 2 bowls for dinner), anything! and hungry easily, just cant stopped eating.

hhah, near for us .. .

but real big and cheap!
I stay in . The food is nice but it always seem ages to me before the food is serve to my room. I am always on the hunger strike. Bathing??? dont't even want to get up of bed and go to the toilet if possible. Mine is natural birth.
depends on the hospital you are staying.
I stayed in Thomson Medical Center, and they have Western, Chinese and maternity food.
So I opt for maternity food one.
They does prepare the soups for you. But becos the aircon could be quite cold, so the soup get cold very fast. So you better drink it fast while it's still hot. As for the food, still not too bad .
As for the herbal bath, need to boil . Maybe your mum or mother in law can boil it and keep it in the flask and bring it over for you to bath loh.
