Doesn't it seem like the moment you become a mother the entire world has an opinion about every choice you make. No matter what you do, it is always the wrong thing and the worst part is the judgement often comes from complete strangers!
On Saturday, an unnamed mother shared a shocking photo on a Facebook group called Breastfeeding Mama Talk. The photo was of a text conversation she had with her birth photographer and people were outraged.
It appears that the photographer refused to take pictures for a woman who delivered her child by a c-section rather than a "natural" birth.
The mother makes it pretty clear that she didn't have much of a choice in the matter, but that didn't seem to appease the nasty photographer who replies with:
"A surgery isn't birth, my dear. You aren't giving birth. You are having a surgery to remove a baby from your abdomen....If you decide to give motherhood a go from the get and have an actual birth let me know and we can schedule your session."
The outraged mother defended herself brilliantly in the post when she wrote:
“Moms who have had a C-section you’re just as much a damn good mother as anyone. How you gave birth and you did certainly give birth does not determine your worth as a mom. #stopmomshaming.”
Birth is hard, no matter how it's done. Do you agree with this new mother? Does she really deserve to be treated this way by the photographer?
