Typical Vaginal (Or C-Section) Birth Recovery

As I near my due date, I'm thinking more about the after-effects of birth. Not fear, just curiosity. Since I don't plan on having a c-section (although I know emergencies do come up and sometimes you don't have a choice), I'm wondering what is involved in a TYPICAL (a.k.a. not your horror story that happens to 2% of people!) vaginal birth recovery process? Was it easy or difficult? You may include c-section recovery too if that's what you had. I'm not ruling that out since our baby has bilateral Clubfeet. 😊
