"...I lost a lot of blood"
This mom tell us about her C-section, and how her stomach became swollen and septic. 

I gave birth to a baby boy on the 10 of August via C-section at netcare N17 in Springs! It was painful after the process and I lost a lot of blood! My gynae gave me blood but I had to remain in bed for another day! That's when trouble began. I was discharged and went back home but after 2 weeks my tommy was hard and swollen turns out I was septic cos I took time to be mobile again. I had to go back to the theatre for another operation to drain the blood that was stuck in my tummy so my advice to all mommies who are using the c-sec routine be active, move around after the operation!!
