A few years ago there was a trend in Hollywood for celebrities to schedule c-sections instead of going in to labor naturally because they were ‘too posh to push.’ The trend seemed to catch on with rumors swirling that wealthy women were scheduling their c-sections around their social engagements so they wouldn’t have to be bothered with the physical exhaustion of labor.
Whether this was true or simply a rumor that seemed to float around the internet, it always made me laugh that there are some women who assumed that a cesarean section would be an easier way to deliver a baby than a vaginal birth. I’ve had both, and I can tell you hands down I would take the vaginal birth route over a c-section, every single day.
Now, after being told she took ‘the easy way out’ one woman penned a powerful rant shutting down anyone who would dare say that a c-section is anywhere near ‘easy’.
