Apparently, there are people out there who think delivering babies by C-section is some kind of conspiracy in the medical profession, designed to help doctors stay on schedule and moms to spend their deliveries sipping mai-tais and getting facials instead of doing the “hard work” of pushing out a human being.
Because anesthesia and major surgery sound like a spa day to me.
For me, it goes without saying that growing a human inside your body is a pretty badass thing to survive no matter how it comes out of you in the end, dude. And trust me, there’s no easy way to get it out.
Mama Olivia White was sick and tired of hearing that her scheduled C-section “wasn’t real birth” or “easy,” so she decided to put this post-op picture of herself out there, along with a pretty hilarious caption.
Which is to say, if you’ve been through a C-section only to hear some bullshit from someone in your life about how “easy” it was, you’re not alone. You’re part of a pretty special club called Mommies. Welcome.
