B I R T H. I S. B I R T H. After a traumatic c-section experience with Bells, I walked away with very few memories of the whole experience and feeling as though I’d cheated my way into motherhood. Regardless of how much people told me it didn’t matter how she was born, I felt like I’d failed at the one thing my body was designed to do. I felt like I hadn’t ACTUALLY given birth 👶🏼😥.
In my latest blog post (clickable link in bio), I talk about Millie’s birth and how it IS possible to have a positive c-section. This time around, I felt empowered, in control and immediately bonded 🙌🏻. A c-section is definitely not the easy route and is in no way cheating. The safe delivery of your baby (and your own well-being) is what truly matters ✊.
For anyone facing an elective c-section, I hope this helps you 😘😘
Ps to all of the amazing NHS staff out there, you’re angels with invisible wings! Thank you for everything that you do!!! 👩🏼⚕️
