Now thatBeyonce and Jay-Z have welcomed baby girl Blue Ivyinto the world,the internet's all abuzz over the details as tohowshe was welcomed.But they addressed the rumors in an official statement...
People were speculating that Beyonce had a scheduled Caesarean section to deliver Blue--a procedure that's also become known as a "Posh push" for Victoria Beckham,who had all four of her kids via planned C-section,though there was no reported medical reason to have the surgery.(Often,C-sections occur because delivering vaginally could harm the health of the baby or mother.)
And there are indeedsome women who request their doctors to performC-sections because they're "convenient,less painful and prevents vaginal stretching.Some also opt for a tummy tuck after surgery" (according toABC News,which also says more women are now opting for "delivery on maternal request"--and that many doctors are happy to accommodate those requests for fear of lawsuits).
Of course,there are lots of opinions on all of this.I underwent an emergency C-section,and then,a few years later,had a scheduled C-section due to health problems that had occurred with the first C-section (which made an old-威廉希尔备用网址fashioned delivery risky).But can I tell you that I had the mostrandomof people chastising me for scheduling it?I know they meant well--they were probably concerned aboutmy and the babies' health(C-sections have some associated health risks--vaginal births do,too).But after a while,I was tempted to tell them that what went on with my lady business wasreallynone of their business.
Or,honestly,like Beyonce's is any of ours.Still,she and Jay-Z quashed the "Posh push" rumors with an official statement inUS Weekly: "[Blue] was delivered naturally at a healthy 7 lbs and it was the best experience of both of our lives.We are thankful to everyone for all your prayers,well wishes,love and support."
What do you think of this "Posh push" idea?Would you ever have a C-section?Do you ever think about what your ideal birth would be like?
