So a friend of mine commented on one of my photos saying she never even knew I had c sections to birth my babies.... & it got me thinking how I would be so resilient when someone would ask me 'how was your birth' etc. I would literally sugar coat the whole story.. 'oh it was fine you know' & then ramble off into something else.
Like wtf? Wtf is that shit. Wtf am I trying to sugar coat the way my precious babies were born! I feel so stupid not owning the way MY children were brought into this world. Because that is OUR story & I should never be afraid to tell it.
I don't know why we let the fear of judgement affect the way we live our lives. I need to own who I am. The good, the bad, EVERY SINGLE PART. Because it's what makes me ME!
So yes I am a 3 x c section mama all within three years. It definitely wasn't what I wanted & I grieve the births I wish I had. But It happened & it gave me three HEALTHY babies. So to anyone wondering how my births were. They were.....magic 💥. #csectionmama #babyorion #owningit #doyou #mamaofthree #threeunderthree #csection #myjourney #nzmama #april2017
