There is a video out on you tube of a mother who has just had a c-section. The doctor brings the baby over to the mother's face and is cleaning the baby off. The baby has a tight, gentle grip on the mother and when the doctor tries to take the child away, the baby cries. A true moment of a mother and child bond. 

I too had a c-section and I remember the doctors bringing me Jack to hold for the first time. He was screaming. I remember taking him and whispering in his ear, "You are so beautiful, why are you crying?". At that moment he stopped crying and fell asleep in my arms. It was the most beautiful moment, so this video truly made me cry. 


My first time holding my baby.
