Giving birth is not easy but is the best thing in the whole world. Giving life to someone and holding them forever is the best one can have. When it comes to pregnancy you get stretch marks and they even get permanent, and your belly might not be the same as before. The most common thing that moms who give birth through C-section have is scars.

You know that everyone’s bodies and emotions aren’t the same, so similarly the scars do differ from person to person. You can take those scars as a reminder to remind you of the strength and courage you had while bringing your child to this world. It’s not a failure mark that you have it your success of bringing someone to the world, a sign of your survival. Have a look at these women with C-section scars.



On Instagram Oliva White, Of the House of White blog had said by sharing a snap of her C-section that it might not be her best angle, but who wouldn’t take selfies hours post-birth so that you can see where they sliced her to get a whole person out. She had shared her photo after a few hours from her delivery so that moms-to-be know how it looks.



The mom who had shared this photo had said that for every woman unhappy with her scars, is another who wishes she had them. She had shared a picture of her C-section after two weeks it was done.



The scars do change with time. This mom had shared a photo of how her C-section was after four days it was done and how it looks after seven weeks were gone. You can see through this that the scars change over time.

Remember that not all C-sections are the same. There are moms whose C-section is done vertically other than doing it horizontally.
