Author, blogger and entrepreneur Constance Hall is pregnant.
At 36 weeks, Constance announced on her Instagram that she and her husband, Denim Cooke, have chosen to have their baby delivered via elective C-section, and like with most things, she was blisteringly honest as to why.
“I’ve decided against a Vbac (vaginal birth after delivery),” Constance wrote, specifying that the decision mainly came down to the “body damage.”
“One of my mates has a prolapsed arse and another has a prolapsed vag and the fact that I already have an inflamed bowel disease I just feel that I owe my anus more than this.”
Told you so!
Constance also explained it was important that her and Denim made the decision together, and feels no shame, or need to justify her decision.
“In 2018, Queens make decisions about their bodies, no justification needed. But this one took a lot of back and forth,” she wrote.
“Denim is all zen and natural, he’d pull the baby out in the river and chew threw the cord if he could. So when I heard him tell me that he’d prefer I had a C section I fell a little more in love with him.
