Brief Answer:

You can start after 4 months.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

As you had c- section 2 months before you have to wait 2 months more to start wearing a belt.

You can wear it for 10-12 hrs., remove during eating and sleeping time. It will support your uterus and helpful in the involution of the uterus.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
