Most people are not fond of their scars. They hide them and attempt to cover them up. They are usually permanent reminders of a kind of harm or trauma. And then there is the C-section scar, a remnant from the wonderful gift of a baby. It’s a scar that many a woman loves and embraces.

Kristina Sauerwein – over at BabyCenter – in her piece entitled “4 Reasons I Love My C-section Scar” says that her scar, “may not be physically beautiful to most. But I love it…” adding that it is a “badge of honor.” Michele Zapp over at The Stir writes in her piece “I’m Proud of My C-Section Scar” that she is “proud of it because it shows my strength.” Those are all valid reasons to love a scar!

I have my own c-section scar, which I actually forget is there – the result of an emergency C-section. My surgeons did a bang up job and left me with a tiny 3 ½” mark. They sliced me open with a pfannenstiel incision which they told me on the operating table was a “bikini” incision (which is far easier to pronounce than the before mentioned medical term.).

But some women aren’t as lucky with their C-section scars (and my apologies for bragging about mine). Their scars are larger and more pronounced than they would have liked and some, they get tattoos to cover them up. It’s also an opportunity to celebrate their babies birth in ink, but odds are, many just wanted to cover up what they thought was unsightly with something pretty.

The Dragon

Emerging triumphantly from this woman’s C-section scar is a flying dragon. Let’s hope this isn’t a representation of their actual baby, I hear dragon babies are very hard to potty train.
