Will need to take long bed rest or restricted activities after caesarean section?

Not at all. You can start sitting the same day and walking the next day of caesarean section. After that there is no restriction as far as activity is concerned compared to normal delivery. Moving around doesn't have any ill -effect on the stitches. Now a days we take transverse incision on the abdomen which is an-aesthetic incision and the scar is barely seen. This type of incision is less painful as well.
