Any woman, be it a celebrity or anyone else, wishes to have a normal delivery. The reason why many celebrities try harder for a normal delivery is that it is much easier to get back in shape after a normal delivery than a C-Section one.
A caesarean delivery leaves behind a scar, which can be adverse to their professional life as Bollywood demands that actresses remain picture perfect. Some celebs also undergo cosmetic surgery to get rid of their scar.
However, God has a set plan for everyone and all women are not able to have a normal delivery. And we can fiddle with Mother Nature for only so much! While pregnancy is a beautiful phase, each pregnancy is different and some medical conditions can actually make a caesarean section delivery inevitable.
So, whether you deliver vaginally or via C-section don’t dwell too much on it, and instead enjoy your new motherhood.
