Carrie Underwood Opens Up About C-Section ‘Guilt’: Hopes To Encourage Other Moms

Carrie Underwood revealed to E! earlier this month that she delivered her adorable son, Isaiah, via a c-section. Now, she is sharing the “guilt” she experienced when his birth didn’t go exactly as she planned.

Like Carrie Underwood, many women feel they failed or did “something wrong” when they are unable to have the traditional delivery they wanted. Underwood discussed some of those feelings, and how she overcame them, with WMZQ.

“I feel like emotionally it was the hardest thing overall. I felt a little bit like I had done something wrong. I had guilt about it going on.”

Carrie Underwood has changed her perspective on her birth experience, and wants to encourage other women who may be having the same struggle. She assures them they are not alone, and says women shouldn’t feel guilty for doing what’s necessary to bring their babies into the world safely.

“So I definitely think that that’s something women should know, that that’s normal and that, again, you gotta do whatever you gotta do to have your baby safely. And that’s kind of your first hurdle as a mom, and it’s just something you’ve got to learn to be okay with, and you’re not alone.”

Despite the emotional hurdle she had to conquer, Carrie Underwood appears to be balancing motherhood and her jam-packed schedule beautifully. She made her first post-baby TV appearance at the 2015 CMT Awards, where she performed “Little Toy Guns,” which just earned Carrie her 21st career No. 1 hit.

Underwood has been busy promoting her women’s workout clothing line, Calia by Carrie Underwood, which is available exclusively at Dick’s Sporting Goods and on the brand’s website. She recently showed how she even converted a Calia gym tote bag into the perfect diaper bag. The new mom posted a picture of the stylish tote stuffed to the brim with necessities for baby Isaiah.

“Our @CALIAbyCarrie totes, of course, are perfect for the gym, but they also make fantastic diaper bags! #MomLife”

The country superstar was also excited to make her comeback to Sunday Night Football for her third season. According to Rolling Stone Country, Carrie Underwood will be joined by some of the NFL’s biggest names in her new version of “Waiting All Day For Sunday Night.”

Carrie Underwood is putting the finishing touches on her first new album in three years. She hints that “things have a little different sort of twang to them, kind of a rock twang,” and fans may even look forward to a song written about her new baby boy. There is no confirmed release date yet, but Underwood promises it will be soon.
