Loveable blogger Constance Hall has all of us cheering with her passionate defence of caesarean births on her Facebook page today.
The post, which features a shot from the first chapter of her book ‘Like A Queen’, slams the mummy-shamers who lay claim to natural births as the superior method of childbirth.
Indeed, the online Mummy Blogger community love nothing more than vocalising their opinion on natural births vs. caesarean births. Earlier this year, HuffPost wrote about the The Secret Birth-Shaming of Mothers, where women who have chosen and/or have been forced into a C-section are being bullied for being ‘too posh to push’.
Well, Constance Hall is having none of it.
Her book, Like A Queen, actually opens with a declaration on birth:
“The definition of giving birth is “the act or extraction of a foetus and it’s membranes.” So just to clarify, if you’ve had a C-section, you have still ‘given birth’. Bravo, you rule.” she writes.
