Some days before passing away, Emily had announced that her fifth baby would be born via C-Section - it was also her fifth time undergoing the procedure. She posted a picture on Instagram with her entire family to talk about how she didn't get to experience "real motherhood" through natural delivery but that she was grateful nonetheless.

However your baby gets here, just know YOUR EXPERIENCE is valid and worthy. YOU are no less a mother if you needed emergency medical intervention, had a planned c-section, or an epidural...And if you grew your brood through adoption or surrogacy or family blending? Those are YOUR babies and YOU SIT PROUDLY at the table of motherhood.⁣
