Precautions to Take while Driving After Delivery There are a few precautions you must keep in mind while driving after a few weeks of giving birth to your baby. - You can resume driving once the pain, discomfort, and dizziness goes away. Don’t try to drive before that. - If you are taking pain medication to help with post-delivery pain, then you should not drive at all. - You need to plan so your driving doesn't coincide with times your baby is hungry. - When taking your baby along, you will have to spend extra time to change the diaper. If you are breastfeeding, you will have to manage sore and enlarged breasts also. - All these activities might tire you out as a new mother, especially if you have not recovered fully. Hence, it is better not to drive for the first few weeks post-delivery. -If you are the athletic and healthy type, remember, postpartum healing does not happen in a few days. Thus, it is a good idea to take proper rest and wait for a few weeks before you start driving. -Enjoy the precious time you have with your newborn. Let your body heal and get completely healthy for your baby’s sake. N/B:- "Few weeks" is a miminum of 4 weeks for vaginal delivery and a minimum of 5 weeks for caesarian section delivery.
