This mom tells us what a c-section really looks like!

Ever since Hollywood mama Kate Hudson joked about her elective Cesarean being the ‘laziest’ thing she’s ever done, the birthing method has been a hot topic.

Many women have clapped back at Hudson and other naysayers saying it is the ‘easy way out’.

But one woman, Olivia White, is going a step further.

The Melbourne mum-of-two recently exposed what it’s really like to have a C-section, which she says left her feeling “like a gutted shark”.

White, who is also a popular blogger, shared an image of herself just hours after giving birth via C-section to her second child.

“Look I know it might not be my best angle. But who wouldn’t take selfies hours post birth so they can see where they sliced you open and yanked out a whole person,” she writes.

Look I know it might not be my best angle (or is it?) 😂 but who wouldn't take selfies hours post birth so they can see where they sliced you open and yanked out a whole person 🙋🏼 (if you couldn't tell I still couldn't see past my still inflated uterus) 🙈 This is what you really look like a few hours post c-section 🗡 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 🌈 and 🍭 till the spinal wears off! 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 👻🙅🏼 Anyone who's ever had c section knows that you'll 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 skin tight Kookai dresses I bought while pregnant 🤰🏼 that now make me look like I have a Kangaroo pouch – I wouldn't change it! 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 😷🤕

“To anyone who thinks it’s the easy way out, well try having a six-inch gash in your abdomen like a gutted shark who had the body parts of a surfer it ate retrieved. That’s then sewn back together with fishing wire while it feels like your vital organs are trying to escape!”

White adds that the pain leaves you feeling “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”.

She also addresses the long-term effects, saying, “anyone who’s ever had a C-section knows that you’ll forever be dependent on your friends Nancy, Dr 90210 and Spanx because you cannot for the life of you get rid of the ditch that is left by the scar”.

But she also says she “wouldn’t change it”, adding that if it wasn’t for being able to deliver her babies this way they might not be here today.

“Plus,” she adds.”I reckon getting cut from A to B sounds way worse.”
