A client who was worried that she’d have to deliver via C-Section — and then did — asked photographer Helen Carmina to capture this powerful photo after her baby’s birth. “Her worst nightmare proved to be what saved her and her child’s lives,” Carmina shared on Facebook.

Jesse James Decker's selfie of her C-Section scar

Country pop star, Jessie James, posted this photo of her C-Section scar, along with this message. “My tummy is still swollen and you can see my c-section scar and pooch! I had another due to my 9lb baby and petite frame. So no rushing and no stressing about losing weight! Wanted to make sure y’all saw what my tummy looks like under the tank top and blazer…I do wear a belly waist train thingy a few hours here n there which helps c section mamas and swelling to go down. I am so glad we all can support each other. Being a mommy is so rewarding but hard work so we need to stick together and help each other out. I’m not perfect but I do my best.”
