CHILDBIRTH 👏🏼 IS 👏🏼 CHILDBIRTH ・・・ “The morning my boys were born is admittedly a blur (I will be sharing my birth story with you all soon)... I was, and am, so proud of my body and feel so blessed...early on, my doctor told me they only deliver multiples via c-section and I was completely at peace with that. I always wanted what was the healthiest option for my babies and for myself. What has surprised me are the reactions I have gotten to this day about having a c-section. During my pregnancy, and to date, I have been asked countless times if I was disappointed to have to have had a c-section to deliver my boys. My answer is, and will always be “absolutely not!,” although I am continually puzzled by this question. First and foremost the health of both the mother and babies is always number one. Second I think having a c-section is just as beautiful as any other delivery. It does not make anyone less of a mother or less of a parent. It did not cause less of a bond with my boys and I certainly do not feel like I missed out on any experience by birthing my children via c-section. All I cared about was if they were ok and once I heard them cry it was such a relief. I think all too often women have to explain far too much when it comes to the birth of their children. Each of our journeys to motherhood are unique, beautiful and quite a story to be told, just as our birth stories are. Regardless of how we deliver we are warriors and our bodies are incredible. We should never feel disappointed, or any less of a woman or mother, because we are having, or have had, a c-section. Our scars tell a story of a hero, a unique, powerful and capable woman, and remind us every day of our strength. Now what is more moving than that?” — @michelelovetri
