    Default NATIONAL MAGAZINE: Did you have an elective c-section due to a fear of giving birth?

    Do you want to be in a high profile national parenting magazine? I am looking for anyone who had an elective c-section due to a fear of giving birth. Please let me know ASAP! Thank you :-)

    You may want to choose to word your article carefully as having a caesarian is still giving birth.

    Hi there! I would love to hear more. I am writing a feature for a national parenting magazine based in Australia. How scared were you of giving birth naturally? Was this why you had a csection? Would you be willing to be interviewed and do you have photos you can share with me of you and bub soon after the birth if we went ahead with the interview? Can you also confirm you are based in Australia. Thank you!

    Technically it is, but it's not the same.

    I struggled to say give birth for months after I had my third baby which was my first c-section (emergency)

    5 weeks on and I can't say I gave birth, I say 'when my ob delivered' or 'when she was born'.

    To the mummies saying that can't relate to "giving birth" after having a c-sect. I also had an emergency c-sect with dd2 and in some ways didn't feel like I did my "job" giving birth to her naturally. I recently saw this one FB it accompanies a photo of a mother being stitched after a c-sect but it's the words that are most touching. ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1402142374.622563.jpg
