Photographer Captures Baby Next To Mom’s C-Section Scar To Show That It’s Perfectly Natural

Published 9 years ago

Cesarean section is a procedure where an incision is carried out on the mother to extract the baby. It has its downsides, and some mothers might be unwilling to talk about it. Helen Carmina, a family photographer, had this unlikely mother ask to take a picture of her c-section scar together with the baby.

“I photographed this mama’s pregnancy a while back and she was telling me how terrified she was of having a c-section,” Carmina, who lives in Guernsey, UK, wrote on her Facebook. “Well last week she went into labor but had to have an emergency c-section after complications. She asked me to come over this morning and shoot this particular image as her worst nightmare proved to be what saved her and her child’s lives.”
