Don't eat or drink anything 8-12 hours prior to your c section.

Check work your doctor to be sure these things vary slightly. And im to not be able to drink prior it's stupid bc after 8 hrs+ not driking your body will already be dehydrating. I can drink water up till I have my repeat cesarean. Just no food 8 hrs before.
