new mom secrets true mom confessions i had a c-sectionIt's hard being a new mom (or even an experienced mom to a new baby) and sometimes we do things we know we shouldn't, despite what all the experts say. But this is a safe place to share your secrets—we won't tell.

This Week's Secret:

"My baby weighed over 11 pounds, and during the delivery he kind of got stuck. My doctor recommended a C-section, but he said he would continue with a vaginal delivery if I really wanted to. I was really scared of the tearing and pain so I said okay to the C-section. I feel so guilty—my boyfriend is the only other person besides the doctors and nurses who know. I tell anyone who asks that I gave birth naturally.   — anonymous

We all have secrets and opinions—so thanks to this brave mom for sharing her honest thoughts, and thank you for keeping this conversation nonjudgmental!
