That’s the quote I heard first or I’d rather say I remember hearing first. My mom and dad taught me when I was inside her. I love my mom. I like her caress and protection. So I stayed inside her womb for a week more. And not to break my promise to her “I will not give any pain to you…” That’s why doctors advised Lower Segment Cesarean Section (LSCS) on October 6. They first catheterised bladder under anaesthesia. Abdomen opened in layers through a low traverse incision. UV fold opened and bladder mobilised down with ease. Curvilinear incision made on the lower uterine segment. A live male baby born at 9:55 A.M. I opened my eyes, looked at my mom, and soon cried after she called me “Pappu”. Nurse wiped my face clean, took me closer to my mom’s cheek, and she kissed me. I smiled. It was one of the best moments of my life. Later, I was cleaned by nurse and placed in a cradle next to mom. In the meantime, doctors started reverse process and in less time, LSCS was completed successfully.

Nurse took me out of the operation theatre. Grandma was there… all excited to hold me. I screamed as soon as she held close. I let out one more scream to hear his voice… the voice I love the most. Grandma placed me in his hands… I loved the warmth of his hands and he called me “Pappu”. I opened my eyes, smiling big and looked into his glistening eyes: I felt complete. He cherished it and my uncle framed the moment. Later, my uncle held me in his hands.

Turns taken to held me, before I was fed by my mom with the help of grandma. Truly, breastfeeding is awesome!

And, this was the first framed moment of my life…
