I was in labor for 19 hours.
Finally I was taken by a swarm of doctors and nurses who whisked me away for a cesarean.
In a cold white room, behind a blue wrinkled curtain, I laid with my husband, as the doctors spoke flatly, and I shook uncontrollably.
I birthed my child by cesarean. My body did not fail me.
My child came into this world, birthed by cesarean!
My scar has faded but I will always have a reminder of the day my child came into this world. I birthed her by cesarean!
My body did not fail me!!
A good mother isn’t defined by the process of labor or whether she breastfeed or not. A good mother is defined by the sacrifices she makes and the love that she gives her children.– Unknown
April is Cesarean Awareness Month. Let’s make a change in the way we think about cesarean births!!
