Mom’s Stark Before and After Photos Show the Reality of Having a C-Section

Mel Watts, a mom of four from Melbourne, Australia, is a mommy blogger who has become very popular from her willingness to dive deep into the hard, not so picture-perfect truths about parenting and motherhood.

Watts, who has over 147K followers on her Instagram account, @themodernmumma, has tackled almost every parenting topic under the sun, from pregnancy sex to newborn sleep (or rather, the lack of) to postpartum panic attacks. But one of her most recent posts has gone viral for showing the stark reality of what a C-section stomach looks like — and she’s not shying away from celebrating it in all its scarred glory.
