Natalie McCain from The Honest Body Project shares the story of one woman’s amazing c-section journey.
“I was so amazed by her willingness to be photographed with her staples, only a few days after her C-section,” Natalie explains.
“Her story has gotten feedback from so many other C-section mothers who say the pictures and story made them feel much better about their own scar, which I am so grateful for, said Natalie.”
Mum of three, Jacqueline suffers from an aggressive form of endometriosis, she wasn’t sure if she could even get pregnant.
“When I was 24, doctors found that my left ovary was extremely enlarged. This led to months of tests, doctors, oncologists, and surgery,” Jacqueline shared. “I have a family history of ovarian cancer and they couldn’t tell exactly what it was, or why it was growing so fast. My surgery ruled out cancer and I was diagnosed with aggressive endometriosis. I have a scar from my belly button to my pelvic bone, one less tube and ovary, and what tissue the doctors couldn’t get out.”
“This body that has seen surgeries, tumors, three C-sections, and incredible loss didn’t fail me one bit,” she says. “My baby is alive, I’m alive, and no scar or procedure will take that away from me. The scar that almost determined my future dead ends at the scar that gave me my future.”
