My friend had 3 c-sections and with all of them she was home on the 3rd day, walking around, making coffee. The quicker you start moving around the better. The biggest mistake that you can make is to stay in bed for some time. obviously you need to rest when your body tells you to, but do not stay in bed for the whole day.
