As a surgical nurse, I know that a controlled situation is much better than an emergency. I did not want to get into an emergency situation so I opted to go for the controlled c-section.
I always wanted to be a mommy and all I had were the heartbreaking search results that told me it would be a gift I might never receive.
When I was 17 I was diagnosed with PCOS and told because of it and my size I would be unlikely to have children. I always wanted to be a mother, it was my biggest dream.
When Michelle posted her, I didn’t know I was pregnant story, on the Plus Size Mommy Memoirs Facebook page I immediately wanted to know more.
I am sharing my story because I found great comfort in reading the memoirs of other mommies who had delivered naturally, especially women considered plus-size.
