Mom’s C-Section Selfie & Caption Gets Real AF About Why It’s Not The ‘Easy Way Out’ Of Childbirth

Moms are some of the best people in our lives, but also, some of the cattiest human beings to ever grace the planet. Whenever people talk about childbirth and the numerous ways in which a baby can enter this world, women who don’t endure the “pain of natural childbirth” don’t really “understand” what it’s all about. For years, mothers who have given birth to their children via C-section have long endured the stigma of “taking the easy way out” when it comes to having children. It’s a bunch of bullsh*t if you ask me. There are countless reasons why people would give birth to their child via C-section that many of times leave the mother with no other options. And, while mothers who have endured the “pain of natural childbirth” want to point fingers at C-section mothers for being “weak,” they don’t truly understand the effects of C-sections and how it changes your life and your body.Listen having a baby is a lot of hard work, whether you deliver naturally or via C-section. At the end of the day, you created a human being that lived in your body for 9 whole months, that’s pretty impressive if you ask me.

One mother-of-two decided it was about damn time people realized what C-sections actually do to your body after having kids and the way in which she described it well, it’s hilariously accurate.Olivia White took to Instagram to share not only a pretty personal selfie of her stomach and C-section scar but a lengthy, detailed caption about justwhatlife is like for mothers who do go through the surgery.

Look I know it might not be my best angle (or is it?) ? but who wouldn't take selfies hours post birth so they can see where they sliced you open and yanked out a whole person ?? (if you couldn't tell I still couldn't see past my still inflated uterus) ? This is what you really look like a few hours post c-section ? To anyone who thinks it's the easy way out, we'll try having a 6 inch gash in your abdomen like a gutted shark ? who had the body parts of the surfer ?? it ate retrieved! That's then sewn back together with fishing wire while it feels like your vital organs are trying to escape! I mean sure, everything is ? and ? till the spinal wears off! After that it's like you've been hit by a bus ? which then backed over you just to make sure it didn't miss you the first time! If you don't time the Endone exactly before the previous lot wore off then you will most certainly know you are alive (while wishing you were dead) ?? and worst of all you'll feel as if you'll spend your entire life wearing nanna ? knickers up around your waist because the thought of anything settling in the canyon between your gut and pubic region is the stuff nightmares are made of ??? Anyone who's ever had c section knows that you'll forever be dependant on your friends Nancy, Dr 90210 and Spanx because you cannot for the life of you get rise of the ditch that is left by the scar ? But for all the skin tight Kookai dresses I bought while pregnant ?? that now make me look like I have a Kangaroo pouch – I wouldn't change it! Because if it wasn't for the ability to deliver my babies ?? this way they might not be here today ?? plus I recon getting cut from A to B sounds way worse ??

Could this be any more perfect? People were grateful for White’s honesty and humor on such a taboo topic for mother’s everywhere, leaving comments on her post like:

See, look how much better the world can be if women just come together and inspire each other instead of judging? Take notes, b*tches.
