3. Reactions to anesthesia. After the surgery, side effects may occur regardless of the anesthetic used.
Not all mothers are mentally prepared to go through the C-section, considering that their body "failed them." One of the women who had experienced this spoke out on Facebook and her words are worth reading.
Instead of changing diapers and looking after baby, the first few days after birth you practice walking the hallways with a nurse holding your hand and dragging a pole with your catheter and urine dragging close behind.
But do you know what?
I don’t feel in the slightest bit sorry for us.
Because when I look at you C-Section Mama,
I see a scar that screams “love.”
I see a warrior who overcame so much in the name of love.
And isn’t that motherhood after all?
Overcoming challenge after challenge in the name of love?
Because who said love was easy?
Love is overcoming challenges in the name of love.
It’s sacrificing in the name of love.
So fellow C-Section Mamas, don’t for a second doubt yourself.
You are brave.
In the first few seconds of your child’s life, you overcame so much in the name of love.
You are a warrior.
Own that beautiful scar.
