I happened to hear a bizarre statement a couple of weeks back, rather I was told that,
Mothers who had Natural Childbirth or the so called ‘Normal’ delivery are the ones who love their children most.
Seems like only ‘those’ women knew what ‘Real’ pain is !!
Astonishingly this declaration came from a Woman… who further added that the labour is the most intense pain ever and you will know the value of the baby only if you delivered naturally.
I was like, Uhh !! Umm!! well not really .. I had a C-Section, and I love my Son, more than all of the love put together in this world.
This is not just one Bizarre Statement, that float around… there is more to this, like,
You are a ‘Divine’ mother if you had a Normal delivery.
You are a ‘Not-so-Divine’ mother if you had a Caesarean.
You are a ‘Lucky’ mother if you’re firstborn is a Boy.
You are a ‘burdened’ mother is you’re firstborn is a Girl.
You are a ‘Nice’ mother if you breastfed you’re child.
You are a ‘Selfish’ mother if you did not breastfeed.
You are a ‘Blessed’ mother if you had a child within 1 yr of marriage.
But, let me tell you, which ever type of mother you are, you are the best.
You have gone through weird emotions, unpleasant days, public embarrassment and strange happenings all through pregnancy.
It is such a real struggle, that goes so unnoticed, only because you decided not to make a big deal out of it.
More than the time, effort, love and money, you have invested a lot of you’re health for this little being.
You may not realise, you may not believe, if I tell you that, your child thinks that, you are the bestest thing that has ever happened to Her/Him.
You are the Superhero in their hearts today. it may change tomorrow, that’s inevitable. But today, you are the SuperHero, and you mean the world to them.
Don’t let anyone describe how much more or less you love you’re child, just on the basis on how and when you delivered.
Always remember, when God called you to be a Mother, he did not ask for perfection or normal delivery. He chose you for the highest order of blessing.
And yes, There are only very few ‘Genuine’ mothers in this world ~ and YOU are one of them !!
