I think there should be an additional section for "complicated vaginal births"...The article, while informative, kind of assumes a vaginal birth is easy to recover from, but sometimes it can be almost as hard as if a c-section was performed. Labor could have been a VERY long process which is going to need more recovery, or additional procedures done during labor/delivery could need to heal first.
For example, when my son was born, he was a vacuum-assisted birth, which because he needed to come out quickly, warranted an episiotomy. I couldn't have dreamed of exercise until those stitches were completely healed!
