As I had to have an emergency c-section with Miss A, the midwives have referred me on to a gynecologist for the rest of the pregnancy.
I was nervous, but she was lovely.
She told me that the decision as to whether to deliver naturally or opt for another c-section was up to me (assuming of course, the baby is playing by the rules).
Just before leaving, she asked if she could have a look at my scar – I lay down and she started to examine me. She couldn’t find the scar until I pointed it out. “My” she says “That’s a super neat job there, I could hardly find it”. In her excitement she calls over her colleagues “Have a look at this scar, it’s just BEAUTIFUL”.
Oh my goodness! She was so impressed. It kind of scared me .. how could they be so impressed by what I considered a normal scar – was it that great? What were their plans? Do they perform their c-sections with butter knives? I’m re-thinking the whole thing now……
