Haunting indeed and she is very talented.
However, I do not share her vision of her cesareans and I have had a cesarean.
I had three vaginal natural deliveries and then got preggers in my 40's with my last child. He is 4 1/2 now. I had become a nurse since the deliveries of my other kids. I've smelled burning flesh from the cautery. I've seen uterus' lifted from the abdomen. I've watched babies born.
I actually wished for a cesarean - so I wouldn't have to go through the pain of labor again - the way it feels to me to have my body taken over by an unseen force, so to speak, that I can do nothing about . .that was awful. I ended up with an emergency cesarean due to complications. Funny, be careful what you wish for.
Actually, the surgery was no big deal for me. My son was whisked off to the NICU for a couple of hours but came to me and I breastfed him right away.
I do remember that first shower though - that photo did say alot about how it felt - really good to feel the warm water but you definitely noticed that you had an incision.
Everyone experiences this differently - I give her credit for doing something creative with her anger.
But I'd have a cesarean again in a heartbeat . . . if I got preggers that is.
And I'm pretty old to do that now.
Thanks for this - where did you come across it anyway anon?
