I am not a mother but my sister was. She gave birth through a C-section. I was with her during that day. We had to go to the mall to walk around for a couple of hours because the doctor said she’s not ready yet and still need to walk around so the baby will be on the right position or what (I really don’t know but we did walked for hours). Then we all went back to the hospital. She went on labor and was at it for 10 plus hours but at the end of that grueling fit, we were informed that she had to go through C-section still. With that said, fact I know is that to have a c-section is not easy. Your insides will be taken out and a lot of hands are inside you looking for your baby. After all that, she wasn’t able to move around normally because of that. What I am saying here is, how dare those people say that those who did not have vaginal birth aren’t mothers. That isn’t even how you would gauge if a woman is a mother or not. Motherhood comes after the birth, sleepless nights and making sure that your baby is okay. Being a mother doesn’t even stop even when your children are all grown up. I should know, I’m a full grown person, a working adult, and yet my mom is still doing what she has been doing since I was born. Shout out to all mothers ~ those who went through the normal birthing, c-section and those who adopted. Being a mother isn’t measured by knowing that a human being came out of your vagina, it is measured by the love you give to those blessed souls who you call children.
