Usually, you should be able to walk soon after your C section and every day you get stronger and having less pain. Usually by 4-6 weeks you should able to go back to your regular activities assuming there is no post C Section complications or issues.

So, "normal" is kind of a hard question to answer. Most people are walking the next day. They are walking slowly. I would say that most people that come and see us for their 2-week post-op visit are walking pretty normally.
