Blogger and Mum of two, Olivia White, snapped herself just hours after birth to dispel any myths about having a c-section.
She shares that she took the picture just hours after birth and described the operation as “where they sliced you open and yanked out a whole person”.
The mum told how her uterus was inflated and wrote “To anyone who thinks it’s the easy way out, 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!”
She adds, ” 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.”
Rebecca Judd recently got super real about her post-baby ‘sausage shelf’, otherwise known as the C-section scar. Read that story here.
