Littekens na een keizersnede: zo zien ze eruit

Een baby krijgen is een ontzettend bijzonder moment. Toch staat de situatie het niet altijd toe om op de natuurlijke manier te bevallen. In dat geval zal er waarschijnlijk een keizersnede worden gedaan.

Een keizersnede is een zware operatie. Je moet vaak nog een paar dagen in het ziekenhuis blijven ter controle, en pas na 6 weken kan je waarschijnlijk weer huishoudelijke klusjes doen of autorijden. Ook zal er een litteken overblijven.

Trots op je litteken

Dit litteken is bij elke vrouw anders, net zoals de manier waarop ze ernaar kijken.
Gelukkig zijn er steeds meer moeders die trots zijn op hun litteken, als symbool van het leven dat hun lichaam ze heeft geschonken. En daar zijn we het helemaal mee eens!

Hieronder delen we de foto’s van vrouwen die hun litteken met trots dragen.

"'Je vous recommande d'avoir une césarienne.' Les mots que je ne voulais pas entendre au moment de donner naissance à mon premier enfant. Ce n'était pas mon plan, ce n'était pas ce que j'avais en tête. J'avais une vision précise de comment je voulais accoucher – je me voyais pousser, John couper le cordon ombilical et regarder le médecin le soulever. ⁣ A la place, le rythme cardiaque de Jameson baissait dangereusement à chaque dose d'oxytocine. Nous avons pris la décision de le faire venir rapidement et surtout en toute sécurité. J'ai été transportée jusqu'à la salle d'opération en étant terrifiée et j'étais sur le point d'être ouverte tout en étant éveillée. ⁣ Je n'ai pas eu la chance de changer sa première couche – j'étais toujours à moitié paralysée après la procédure. Je n'ai pas voulu recevoir de visites à l'hôpital car j'étais trop mal. Je n'ai pas pu me pencher pour prendre mon bébé pendant les 3 premières semaines de sa vie. A cette époque, toutes ces choses me rendaient triste et me frustraient. ⁣ Maintenant quand je regarde en arrière, je suis reconnaissante. Je suis reconnaissante de vivre à un endroit où ce genre d'opération est possible et où c'est même une option. Je suis tellement heureuse que Jameson soit arrivé de la façon la plus sûre possible. Cette cicatrice, c'est la porte par laquelle Jameson est arrivé au monde et je le referai un million de fois s'il le fallait." ❤⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ @melissameenan⁣ #aufeminin #aufemininloves #regram #motherhood #csection #csectionscar #mothersday #selflove #family #mommy

#mandpcelebrateme celebrates ALL parents. Here’s to all love marks; they are your story 💛 Today's #repost: @kenziekornegay —– Let’s talk about my stretch marks & my scar. Each mark I have tells a story. A story of how I grew a little babe for 9 months, and a story of how after those 9 months my body started to fail. At 39 weeks I was admitted and induced for preeclampsia, a condition that can become fatal for both mom & baby. After over 40 hours of laboring, we found out that multiple loops of cord had been blocking oxygen from getting to babe. After 3 times of his heart rate falling dangerously low, they called for the doctors. I was put under general anesthesia and missed out on the entire birth of my son. I didn’t get to hear his first cries, I didn’t get to change his first diaper, I didn’t get to be the first person to hold him, in fact I didn’t get to even see him until hours had passed. Without getting too emotional over this post I just want to say, our bodies are amazing, they stretch and grow and expand in literally every way. Since his birth, I’ve hated my scar because of the trauma it reminded me of, and I’ve hated my marks because of the way they changed my skin. But now, I can’t stop thinking; “for every woman who hates her marks, there’s another wishing she had them”. These are my love marks baby —– Want to be featured on the next spotlight?

The wound is the place the light enters you✨ -Rumi⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ The “wound” for each of us is different.

When looking for a photo for a submission, I was surprised to realize I didn’t have one of my C-section scar… It is a monumental mark so why wouldn’t I?? . This C-section scar is proof of the amazing gifts my body gave me, my two sons less than two years apart. It is where each of my babies were birthed from, each recovery different—the first emotionally trying but physically fine, the second physically trying but emotionally more empowered. . ✨This scar is proof that my body is resilient and strong and capable of doing amazing things.✨ What once made me a bit ashamed now makes me proud. I am so glad I have this photo now. 💕 Join me to spread C-section awareness through positivity by using #csectionempowerment on your related pics!✨

For those of you that were following along on my VBAC journey… it unfortunately wasn’t in the cards for me with Archer’s birth. I’m working on writing out his birth story so if you’re interested in all the details, keep an eye out in the next week or so! . Having another c-section not only meant letting go of Archer’s birth plan, but it also meant closing the door on any future VBACs for me as I’m not willing to take the risks a VBA2C brings. While initially I was disappointed, I have to say… I’m choosing to love this little scar. Both of my boys came out of it for critical reasons that if it weren’t for the c-sections, there’s a chance neither of my boys would be here today. . Experiences in life leave their marks on your body and pregnancy/birth is certainly no exception to that. I’m choosing to love this scar and stretch marks instead of hating them. I’m choosing to love how I am reminded of both of my boys by these marks. Like how my scar sticks out just a little further on one side because Jack’s shoulders were stuck, or how my stretch marks are just on the part of my stomach where my belly stuck out the farthest. . God willing, our future child(ren) will also come out of this little scar and I am looking forward to seeing what reminders I will gain from them. But for now, I will be grateful for this amazing body that grew, birthed and nourished my kids… and then healed itself back up to do it all again. Mama’s, we are superhero’s! . . . #postpartumbody #postpartum #csection #csectionrecovery #csectionscar #csectionbirth #vbac #momlife #pregnancy #birthstory #boymom #boymomlife #2under2club #2under2 #momofboys #momblogger #livingthekylife #midwest #midwestbloggers #instamom

Today I would have been 24 weeks pregnant with my boys, I would have been going inpatient, they would of been viable. Today I feel angry but most of all heartbroken. I don’t understand why this happened to us but at least I know they are safe in heaven and they no longer feel mommy’s worries. I miss you so much my babies! • • • #momotwins #RIP #twinmom #miscarriage #stillborn #stillbornstillloved #grievingmom #brokenheart #csectionscar

I’ve been told that I shouldn’t be using the hashtags #postpartum and #mombod anymore. I hate to break it to everyone, but once a woman has a baby, she will forever be postpartum. There’s no going back. So, whether I’m 2 months or 18 months post-partum, I’m still postpartum✌🏼 . . Mom bods come in all shapes & sizes. My weight has gone down slowly over the last 18 months but I still have the other mombod hallmarks. Stretch marks, cellulite, and loose skin (my belly button weirdly hangs to the side now🤷🏻‍♀️); I have a c-section scar, and my boobs are never going to be the same (#breastfeeding). I have melasma (skin discolouration) on my face which hasn’t faded, my hair is only now starting to grow back (so much of it fell out that I had bald patches); not to mention all the changes people can’t see, like pelvic floor dysfunction, and my fibroids going haywire. So yeah, I’ll still use the term mombod if I feel like it, thankyouverymuch, because #thisismymombod. . . #powerinpostpartum #mom #mama #motherhood #motherhoodunplugged #momsofinstagram #ohheymama #boymom #18monthspostpartum #body #proud #selflove #csectionscar

This is my stomach one week postpartum 💕 my #CSectionScar is healing nicely. My pain is kinda bad today bc I ventured out into the world to the SUPER Walmart in Frankfort and maaaan that place is huge. Walking around in there had me ready to go home and take my medicine and lay down 😴 but anyway… #Swipe to see some beautiful babies & brother/sister love. 💜 #johnsewayne #toddibea

Another picture I now have the courage to show, two and half years after the csection birth of my son. When my husband took this picture I was kind of critical with myself because society has this image of what a #postpartumbody should look like…. But looking at it now it’s just perfect it’s just a real mommas body!!!! #loveyourpostpartum #loveyourpostpartumbody #csectionscar #postpartumqueen #proudmombody #1monthpostpartum #csectionbirth #csection @thebump #channelmumvillage #mothershape photo by @jaseft
