“The womb of a woman isn’t defined by her stature. It was designed to stretch and accommodate generations of greatness.” ~ Phebe (Reju) Olaniran
It was all joys when we found out we were expecting. On my third appointment with the gynecologist, he mentioned to me that I would have to birth via CS as according to one medical calculation. Okay, truth be told, I was scared. I truly was. Got home and told my husband, he said that’s fine. Consulted some doctor friends and they expressed the same so I accepted.
When I met with my gynecologist, he mentioned that it was possible for me to birth vaginally as people as short as me and even shorter has birthed vaginally (which is true.)
Fast forward to day of baby’s arrival, I was in labor for 18hours (thank God for epidural) and I was just at 2.5cm. Baby became distressed and I needed emergency CS to be delivered of my little miracle. We both obliged at same time, the doctor had to laugh. We held hands as expecting parents and prayed. My dad was called and he prayed with us too. Oh I love my gynecologist, he asked to pray with us and off we went to have our “good and perfect gift.”
Miraculous God, baby had the cord round the neck and didn’t even descend at all. Who knows what would have happened if baby was crowned and all those.
While I am not saying, don’t have faith, I am saying as much as you have faith in God, if God has to use the doctor, have faith in the doctor too.
I had a repeat CS for my second baby. The healing process was much easier the second time than the first and to God be all the praise.
I was saved by the knife and I say, CS is NOT a sin.
