Hi VroomVroomBoys,I think you already have a good arrangement ... should not be too much of a problem.
In the initial weeks, do not move about too much ... so the housework will have to be borne by your daddy & your aunty, but do remember to sought their understanding in the matter.
As for the food, if it's already catered under "confinement meals", they'll know what not to feed you if you let them know that you are having a caeserean ... but if it's just normal catering, then make sure you dont take seafood (as in shellfish, prawns etc) for fear of causing an infection to your wounds. Other than that, take more ginger for warming effect, but not in the initial weeks if your baby has jaundice & you are breastfeeding ... take more proteins (fish, chicken, etc) & calcium (milk, soup brewed with meat) & vitamins (fruits, but some will avoid the cooling ones like pineapple, water-melon, etc).
On the subject of bathing, I allowed my wife to bathe after 1 week ... but with the herbal water & she delivered natural on both occasions, meaning she only had a small snip wound to take care of.
You mentioned "preparing the herbal water", so I presume you already know where to buy those big tea-bags ... as for when you can start bathing, you have to let your wounds decide.
If you are breast-feeding, then do eat more of green papaya soup, pig trotters & peanut soup & steamed/fried cod fish ... this will help increase your supply. If these still dont work for you, then there are other options like nursing tea & fernugreek capsules.
All these, you hafta take care of yourself ... not your caterer, or even a confinement lady.
Girl, all these figures are just plucked from the sky by the old wives ... some probably just very avid readers of the gong-fu novels.
As for when you should avoid taking sea-food, monitor your wounds closely ... when they start to dry up properly, that's a start ... but for some people, when they start taking seafood then the supposedly healing wound start to itch & they have to scratch ... that's when the real nightmare begins, becoz our mails are usually not free of germs & bacteria.
Other than that, I think I need to state very clearly what is defined by seafood here.
It is really just the crustacea (see here for more details: Crustacean - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) ... laymen terms, we are referring to only shellfish: ie crabs, lobsters, crayfish, prawns, shrimps, barnacles, mussels, clams, etc etc.
Logic is simple, crustacea come with a self-defensive mechanism in their body ... specifically an amount of venom which can immobolise their enemies. If you deshell a prawn wth your mouth & ended up being stung by its feelers, you would have experienced a momentary numbness in your mouth ... this is the venom we're talking about.
When this venom gets into your body, it also has the effect of making pus out of an infection ... this is what we wanna avoid.
So, by this definition of seafood, fish (especially the better species) is not included amongst the food you should avoid. I think this is what you are worried about, right?
thanks for your advise and I also hear before after birth the first 60days r not allow to eat duck, any some of the fish as they say is very.poisonous is that true?
