Giada De Laurentiis' c-section: Good or bad?



Once again, our resident mommy member adds her two cents: Giada De Laurentiis' va-jay-jay is up for debate over at While some of the mums are miffed at the picture of the perfectly made up new mother, which no real woman looks like in the delivery room (see it here, courtesy of People), the maternal rage is directed at how daughter Jade Marie was delivered via c-section on March 29.

Tbdgiadadelaurentiis041408There's lots of c-sections in Hollywood, with the rumor being celebrity moms will only have a kid if they go out through the window instead of the door to prevent any tearing ... you know ... down there.

Christina Aguilera told Hello the reason she asked for a caesarean section: "I didn't want any surprises. Honestly, I didn't want any (vaginal) tearing. I had heard horror stories of women going in and having to have an emergency c-section (anyway). The hardest part was deciding on his birthday. I wanted to leave it up to fate, but at the same time I was ready to be done early!"

Victoria Beckham was dubbed "too Posh to push" by the British tabs when she had her 1999 C-section for her son Brooklyn and is said to have kicked off the trend. She said the kind cuts for her two other children were medically necessary, but she's widely regarded as having had them done to preserve her famously skinny figure. Others on the c-section greatest hits: Angelina Jolie, Anna Nicole Smith and Britney Spears.

So tell us, Juice*heads, since you had such spirited opinions on Jennifer Lopez's thoughts on breastfeeding, what do you think of all this vagina vanity?
