Clearly there is a 50% chance of having either the normal birth or the C-section. What is beyond my understanding is, why does the society judge mothers each day on choosing the latter.
The moment i gave birth to my little one, even before wanting to know about the health of the mom and the baby, i heard “Normal or C-Section?” and as soon as they learnt I delivered normally they come up with some more opinions “that’s the best; you’re the perfect mom; these days girls wanna go the easy way“. I think my blood boiled a little thinking would i be any less a mom had i undergone the otherwise. I wasn’t in the mood for sarcasm at that point but the statement still bothers me. Why cant’t a mother choose the easy (at least considered) way. I just continued to gorge on the slice of pizza i was having after the crazy labour hours.
In one of my upcoming posts I’m going to describe how i managed the normal delivery (w/o taking the epidural) which i hope is some help for moms who like to go the natural way.
Anyway, i totally think giving birth is the most naturally beautiful thing a woman can do and how she wants to do depends totally on her decision and/or her medical condition. I do also favoured the normal birth procedure for myself as it has it’s own set of pros that aid the baby health and makes post-partum recovery so much easier but no one has the right to judge the decision a mother makes for herself and for her baby.
Your baby your style!
