New mum Jodie Shaw was so sick of people telling her that she didn’t give birth because she had a caesarean section that she took to Facebook to show just how real it was.
Taking to the Birth Without Fear page, Jodie shared a very raw photo of her “no ordinary” scar to show that there is not just one way to give birth.
Explaining how a C-section was not how she had planned her delivery to go, the mum wrote how “despite what our birth plans might say – sometimes we don’t get a choice.”
Jodie very bravely urged everyone to think for a minute before they judged anyone on how their baby arrived into the world.
“Why would you choose a major operation and six weeks of recovery?” she said.
“This scar saved me from losing a life threatening amount of blood and meant my baby was brought into this world as she should be. Healthy and unharmed, as was I."
What an incredible woman!
