“I don’t mind my Caesarean scar, because it looks like a smile.” – Geri Halliwell
Now, that is a positive attitude! I have had a regular delivery and a c-section and found the c-section to be incredibly easier! When I had my first child (in 2000) Cindy Crawford was going on about her all-natural hot tub birthing in all the magazines and I wanted to be all-natural too. My OB had highly recommended I get a c-section, but I was stubborn and suffered 4th degree tearing and even after reconstructive surgery still deal with the aftermath. Jumping jacks are not for me anymore! Then I had a c-section for my daughter’s birth in 2004 and it was actually wonderful! I felt very present for the whole delivery and the recovery was beyond easy. I got to stay in the hospital for a whole week and it felt like the Ritz! I definitely understand why so many women and celebs are getting c-sections now! And my scar is soooo small I can barely see it. I did have numbness for about a year all around the scar, but that it totally gone now. I know everyone’s experiences are different…that was mine though.
