Amongst mothers there exists an unfortunate stigma surrounding c-sections, especially by those who think that woman who chose to give birth this way is taking the easy way out. One woman decided to speak up about this and address the stigma.

The stigma attached to c-sections make women who chose this option to feel guilty and like they did not give birth because they did not rely on the natural birthing process.

One woman, who chose to stay anonymous, posted on an online parenting forum about her experiences with the c-section stigma.

C-SECTION CALL OUT

The woman had given birth to a son five months before posting on the forum. She had recently met up with friends of hers who had been parents for a few years longer than her.

One of them asked her about her birthing experience, and she gave them the relevant information. They then responded sarcastically and implied that she has no idea what giving birth is really like because she had a c-section.

At the moment she did not know what to say, so she just changed the topic of conversation. However, she left the meeting feeling resentful about how she had been stigmatized.

Luckily the woman received support in the comments on her post, with many mothers writing that all forms of childbirth are valid and that those who choose natural birth are not saints because of it.

SNEAKY MOM IN LAW

If being stigmatized for giving birth via c-section is not enough, one mother found out that her mother-in-law had changed her newborn’s name while she was recovering from her c-section.

While the woman was unconscious, her mother-in-law convinced her husband to change the baby’s name legally. He was too scared to tell his wife when she woke up, so she only found out two months later. When asked about the incident the mother said:

“His mother has always been a manipulator, and I have always known she doesn’t like me. But she blatantly disrespected me and the name my husband and I had chosen for our son."
