Motherhood is a great thing, and some mothers-to-be have the most unusual way of expressing the joy of giving birth. While most women settle with tons of pictures of the newborn, some have more…capricious demands. This was the case of an expecting mother from the United States who asked a photographer to capture her giving birth to a child via a caesarian section.
There’s nothing wrong with parents wanting to capture the moments leading to the birth of their children. Probably most of us have seen in movies clumsy father holding up their cameras in an attempt to capture the miracle of birth.
However, there are no boundaries when it comes to mother’s demands regarding childbirth. An expectant mother from the United States, hoping that she could immortalize the moment, asked the help of a local photographer.
But, to the woman’s surprise, the photographer turned down her request, telling her that what she asked for is too morbid. On the first glance, it may seem like a case of rudeness, but the fact of the matter is that the photographer had every reason to turn down the woman’s request.
Since the woman could not endure a natural birth, the doctors decided that it’s for the best to perform a caesarean section when she goes into labor. Basically, the woman asked the photographer to come into the operating room and armed with his photo-snapping equipment immortalize every moment of the procedure.
So, it’s one thing to take photos or record a woman when giving birth, but it’s entirely another thing to go into the OR and record the surgeons cutting up someone’s belly and exposing the uterus.
Enraged by the photographer’s refusal to offer his services, the mother-to-be posted their conversation on her social media account. And, to top it all up, she couldn’t resist adding a stop mom shaming hashtag at the end of her post.
Naturally, after a couple of hours, her post became viral on the Internet, being shared many times by different users. The expectant mother received dozens of comments, and some of her ‘fans’ asked her about the identity of the photographer who had the heart to deny a woman’s request of snapping pictures of her insides hanging from her belly.
The photographer’s answer which enraged tens of online users went something like a C-Section is not a natural birth.
