Pregnancy changes your life forever. It changes your body and you’ll have new scars and marks and skin and muscles where you’ve not had them before. It’s a process of coming to terms with your new shape and learning to love it after your baby is born and it can be a struggle. There is so much pressure on moms to have it all and to look a certain way and it all coming at you as you heal from birth can be overwhelming. If you have a c-section scar now, that is another thing you have to get use to seeing and it’s not easy for everyone.
For some, having a c-section is a scary thing. Perhaps it’s not what you wanted at all and did everything you could to avoid it. For others the healing from it all and the c-section scar that was left after infection or an emergency c-section is painful to look at.
Or maybe it’s not your favorite thing on your new body — and that’s OK too. More mothers are turning to tattoos to cover up the scar on their stomach left after a c-section. These tattoos hold a special meaning because it doubles as a cover-up and can give beautiful life to your new roles as a mother.
