“I get out of the shower, I observe the evolution of my scar and, like every day, I shudder to remember the PAIN of the first time I had to stand up …“, the interpreter writes while hugging her wound and recalls that this month that is ending was the month of awareness of the cesarean section.” I think mine deserve this space, “she adds.
“The first cesarean was scheduled… I think I exhausted Maia with so much work during pregnancy, that she sat down in the fifth month and there, comfortably, I awaited the order to leave … Far from being afraid of the intervention, I was very impressed with her. My only mission that day was to wait, trying to stay calm, to get to know her. I did not have to push, I did not have to breathe, I did not have to do anything … just WAIT, together with José, and visualize the new reality … That in a few minutes, after entering the operating room, and meeting the love of our lives, we would go out 3 … and 3 forever “, she recounts speaking of the birth of her first daughter, who was born in June 2016.
I will never again use the expression ‘give birth like the others’
After becoming pregnant with Olivia, María Castro was convinced that this time she could give birth vaginally. The actress is athletic, healthy and the girl was not too old to cause complications during childbirth, however, “it could not be”. “I wanted to get one of my dreams, ‘give birth like the others’ I said to myself. I tried, I SWEAR I tried … but it could NOT be. Either she was not ready to leave (it was provoked in week 39 for medical reasons) or I was not ready to release her … but after 5 hours of dilation, the news came: “It can’t be Maria … your previous scar suffers and runs the risk of tearing, and we cannot play it “.
The Galician does not hesitate to admit that at that moment she cried, because She was convinced that she could have her daughter without the need for a second C-section. But in the same way that he recognizes that he had a bad time at that time, he also assures that he is not ashamed of it, since after his tears the best of all would come: the birth of Olivia: “Successful Caesarean section, excited dad, happy mom and in pain, expectant older sister, and baby safe and sound! ”
“I will never again use the expression” give birth like the others “because in the end each delivery is unique and each and every one of them has an exciting story behind them. Be that as it may, and whichever exit door you choose, we will continue to be brave … because We are all the best mothers in the world. #cesarea “, he concludes in his plea.
