Fitness star Chontel Duncan says it was hard to give birth to son because, well, she was so fit

Chontel Duncan the fitness trainer who went viral with her baby bump Instagram pics is now mama to a beauty 7-month-old baby boy. Recently, Chontel Duncan shared her delivery struggles with the world  Like a lot women, Chontel had plans of delivering naturally but things didn’t go as planned. The super fit trainer shared details in an Instagram post, explaining how she felt like she had failed. Poor Duncan has put up with a lot during her pregnancy, huh? She captioned her photo,  “I CRIED I felt like I failed…”

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.

Wow, this sounds scary, we definitely had no idea this could happen. Bringing new life into the world is such a beautiful process but it can be so unpredictable.

Many women deal with the feeling of failure after having C-sections, so it’s wonderful that Duncan closed with an inspiration note to all mothers who’ve had a similar experience.

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.

At the end of the day, it’s all worth it though, right? Just look at baby Jeremiah’s sweet little face.

And she’s already for number two, as she wrote in another Instagram post with her newborn.

We’re sending positive vibes to Chontel and all new mommies out there. It’s not easy.
