Former Miss Universe, Chontel Duncan, recently shared a photo of her C-section scar on her Social media.
She wrote a very moving post about her childbirth experience and how she felt disappointed when she could not give birth naturally.
The doctor had informed her that she had to deliver the baby via C-section because her abdomen muscles were too strong for her to have the baby through vaginal delivery.
The fit mum, whose son, Jeremiah is now 7-month-old, is only just now sharing her story.
“I CRIED I felt like I failed…” She narrated in her post, “but then @sam_hiitaustralia reminded me of my mantra which was “to go through all means necessary so baby feels nothing” & I smiled. With confidence I signed the forms & within 20mins had my baby in my arms.”

“They struggled to rip Jeremiah from my tummy as my abs locked him in super tight as I began vomiting during the operation. This is why my scar was cut up on my right side because the surgeon had to cut me further an use forceps to successfully get Jeremiah out. Perhaps a down side to a strong core. I healed according to my doctor normally, my scar isn’t small, it’s quiet large & I can feel in the center scar tissue, I tried Bepanthen Scar Treatment & Skincerity breathable masque an this is what I have been left with. I would love 3 more children & I will always try for a vaginal birth with each one. So to all the women out there wearing a Cesarean scar, I am VERY proud of what mine means & for the beautiful gift I received through mine. They are memories of the day we all became mummies.”
Here is Chontel when she was 20 Weeks pregnant.
Thankfully, her baby was born healthy.
