Photographer refuses to photograph c-section saying woman really didn't give birth

A photographer has incurred the wrath of mommies everywhere!!  He is suggesting that a woman who has a C-section isn’t really giving birth.  On the Facebook group Sanctimommy, a mommy-to-be posted a text exchange she had with a photographer where the photographer refused to shoot the woman giving birth to her child because she was having a C-section.

“A surgery isn't birth, my dear,” the photographer writes, “You aren’t giving birth, you are having surgery to remove your baby from your abdomen. That is not a birth no matter how you swing it.”  But she wasn't done!  The photographer continued. “If you decide to give motherhood a go from the get and have an actual birth let me know," she added. "And we can schedule your session.”

We know, you’re mouth is probably wide open from the shock, but the photographer STILL didn’t end her insults there.  She had the nerve to note, “This motherhood job is hard, if I were you I would think twice about starting such a job by cutting corners so early in the game.”

  • Well, as you can imagine moms were furious that the photographer passed judgment on the mom-to-be, and the post has since gone viral and has been shared over 3,700 times.  As one woman noted, “This photographer would need surgery to remove my foot from her a**.”
