This mum was shocked at the response from a birth photographer when she told her she was having a c-section.
The text message was shared on the Facebook page Breastfeeding Mama Talk.
Breastfeeding Mama Talk shared a screen shot of the text message with the caption, “This is not okay would love to know who this photographer is,” she wrote.
“Mums who have had a C-section you’re just as much a damn good mother as anyone. How you gave birth and you did certainly give birth does not determine your worth as a mum. #stopmomshaming.”
The mum in question defended herself to the photographer saying,
“I didn’t opt for anything but alright, I had no idea birth photographers discriminated against people for how they birth their babies…” she said.
The photographer replied….
“A surgery isn’t birth my dear,” the photographer replied. “ You aren’t giving birth. You have a surgery to your baby from your abdomen, That is not birth no matter how you swing it and I for one don’t want to be there to take pictures of it.”
The post has gone crazy with over 10,000 reactions from followers.
Many commentators are arguing that it is a fake message and it was just a post trying to make a point. True or not in today’s world I truly believe it is sadly what women face on a regular basis.
