When I was browsing my Facebook page, I came across to this post.
This reminds me of the time when I had my daughter. I won't forget the moment when the doctor told me that I needed a C-section. I was so scared and I cried because I don't want to be cut open. I never had a surgery before so I was scared to death.
My C-section wasn't plan. It was an emergency because of CPD (Cephalopelvic Disproportion) wherein the baby's body or head is too large to fit through mother's pelvis. Basically, it was because of my small pelvis. I did tried to push but no luck. She won't come out and I don't want to take a risk and I just gave up. I felt like I was a failure. I felt cheated with the whole birthing experience but I just kept reminding myself that my beautiful baby girl is all that matters.
I do have a scar but it reminded me that I have a beautiful baby and she was delivered safe. It is my badge of motherhood and I'm proud of it. That scar saved my life and that of my daughter.
Giving birth is a scary and terrifying for me but it was an amazing feeling when you get to hold your child for the first time. Going through childbirth makes you brave either way and we should celebrate it no matter how it happens.
The C-section was the safest thing for me and for my daughter. I wouldn't change a thing. No regret.
