Why should you respect a cesarean mom?

Every woman dreams of having a baby. The excitement and feeling of becoming a mother is something that you can’t really measure. I can still recall when I am pregnant with my firstborn. It was so remarkable, and I cannot explain how happy and excited I am waiting for his coming outside world.

I thought I will be able to deliver him naturally, but I didn’t. I delivered him via cesarean section because my passageway cannot fit the baby and my bag of water broke too early. The doctor advised me to get in the hospital for emergency cesarean section because of the risk related to it. Premature rupture of membranes is a pregnancy complication. In this condition, the amniotic sac surrounding the baby breaks or ruptures before the due date of delivery. If this happened, you have an increased risk for infection. That’s why doctors will usually recommend a cesarean section delivery.

Please, if you know someone who delivered via cesarean section, do not judge, underestimate or criticize her. The pain and fear she felt was not a joke! She felt such pain for weeks and even for months. The pulling sensation in the operated area was so intense and unbearable, even though you’re taking pain medicines.

There are many factors that doctors consider if you are a candidate for cesarean section, and some studies say that the epidural injection experienced by these moms has an effect later in life.

To all cesarean mom’s:

Please do not feel guilty just because you didn’t make it via vaginal delivery, both ways are just equal. You delivered a blessing, it’s your baby! Enjoy every moment with him/her and never think of other things that can bring you down or can make you upset. You have to be happy and be proud of yourself.

You are a great Mom for enduring such pain to bring out one beautiful creature into this world. Congrats and God bless us all!

  1. Thanks for your encouragement to cesarean moms. My daughter just delivered her first baby by cesarean section, due to PCOS and the baby in breach position. While initially disappointed at the news, she had a very good birth experience. Her baby boy is healthy and adorable. And mom is recovered and happy.
