People are loving this blogger's explanation of why a Caesarean section is *not* the easy way out

“It’s like you’ve been hit by a bus, which then backed over you just to make sure it didn’t miss you the first time.”

OLIVIA WHITE IS an Australian blogger, who documents her life as a mother-of-two on House of White.

White is now winning praise for sparking a discussion on how Caesarean sections are not the easy way out when it comes to giving birth.

We’ve all heard the “too posh to push” jibes before, but as White points out, Caesarean sections aren’t exactly a walk in the park either.

“This is what you really look like a few hours post c-section,” White wrote on Instagram. “To anyone who thinks it’s the easy way out, we’ll try having a 6 inch gash in your abdomen like a gutted shark who had the body parts of the surfer it ate retrieved!”

“That’s then sewn back together with fishing wire while it feels like your vital organs are trying to escape! I mean sure, everything is rainbows and lollipops till the spinal wears off!” she added.

After that it’s like you’ve been hit by a bus, which then backed over you just to make sure it didn’t miss you the first time! If you don’t time the Endone exactly before the previous lot wore off then you will most certainly know you are alive (while wishing you were dead).
And worst of all you’ll feel as if you’ll spend your entire life wearing nanna knickers up around your waist because the thought of anything settling in the canyon between your gut and pubic region is the stuff nightmares are made of.

She joked that women who have underwent C-sections will “forever be dependant on your friends Nancy, Dr 90210 and Spanx because you cannot for the life of you get rise of the ditch that is left by the scar”.

But for all the hassle, she wouldn’t change it for the world.

Because if it wasn’t for the ability to deliver my babies this way they might not be here today. Plus I recon getting cut from A to B sounds way worse.

White won serious kudos from other women in the comments who had given birth via Caesarean section.

Conclusion? Giving birth is pretty bloody hard whatever way you do it, so maybe hold your tongue and think twice before calling it “easy”.
