Hi, don't feel depressed it will lead to more weight gain also gaining weight after C-section is normal, breastfeeding with some changes in your diet, avoiding excessively fat rich or junk or packed items may help to reduce, more focused towards taking proper nutrients to recover postpartum damage also for your baby's health.
