I have a very specific reason for writing this post. I am so completely sick and tired of normal birth mommies looking down at c-section mommies. WE ALSO DID IT! But for some reason we are seen as less of a mom and less of a woman because apparently we cheated somehow and got “at least a week off” pregnancy.
Let me educate you a little, take note that this is only my opinion from my own personal experience and is not based on any medical facts / information.
I was in the fortunate position to have a very open minded doctor when I fell pregnant with my first (of three) children. She gave me the option an I chose to have a Cesarean Section…yes I CHOSE TO. This was a personal choice that I am not ashamed of at all!
I didn’t even think or know at that time that apparently we have this culture of ” C-Section mommies are not real mothers” out there.
I am a mom who has 3 children….born into this world via C-Section BY CHOICE and I am no less than a mom who gave birth the normal way! I did not have it easy, I had major surgery and I held my child with the same amount of love than you did Miss Normal Birth. In fact I think my pain following surgery was way more than yours, still I smiled through the hospital visits and I loved my child no less than you loved yours!
I went through major surgery, unbearable pain the first time I could get up and walk,and guess what I still have this special bond with my child!
My point is, and I am really trying my best not to be rude….IT IS MY CHOICE!!!! Stop judging mothers for choosing a C-Section, just as much as a normal delivery is your choice,please don`t
judge my decision...my body my choice :-) I do not need your approval :-)
I would much rather deal with 10 stitches on my tummy….than 5 on my yummy -)
