A Selfie Taken Seconds After A C-Section Birth Stirs Controversy


There is nothing giving birth can be compared to in terms of what’s at stake, but there is no doubt that the arrival of one’s child overshadows any pain or discomfort.

This has been proven again by Brazilian fashion businesswoman Thaise De Mari who gave birth to a healthy daughter back in December, while her husband documented the first seconds of the little girl’s life on camera. The baby was delivered with a C-section surgery, but the happy mother did not mind and was grinning widely even before the procedure was finished.

The photo has become a sensation being liked more than 31,000 times since the happy mom shared it with her 232,000 Instagram followers.

However, the couple also faced considerable online criticism, when Thaise was accused of faking the popular photo in order to increase her popularity.

The young mom, however, has hit back at critics wondering why should she be forbidden to laugh during the happiest moments of her life, while promising to continue smiling even at the rude comments aimed at her. She also thanked everyone who showed support and understanding.


The new post which was accompanied by the original controversial photo, has been liked more than 17,000 times in one day.
