Also known as a C-section. I read that in this post (which is just a dang good read anyway, talking about some Florida hospitals having a 50% or higher C-section rate) and thought it was just an excellent terminology for it. Of course, it’s not actually funny because it’s a sad truth… but it was very, very clever.
[And here is the disclaimer to let you know that, yes, I understand that some C-sections are necessary to preserve the life or health of mother and baby, so if yours was necessary, I am in no way saying anything negative about you. Please don’t read more into the post than I meant. However, if you are one of the estimated 50% of women who had an unnecessary C-section, this may be an accurate, descriptive term for how you feel about your surgery.]
