British actress and radio personality Gemma Atkinson became a mom for the first time this summer. The 34-year-old welcomed daughter Mia Louise with boyfriend Gorka Márquez in July.

The new mom has been sharing some peeks at her adventures with her little girl. Like any new mom, she’s also been hearing all of the unsolicited opinions of others. One comment about C-sections stuck with her so much, she decided to speak on it.

Although she planned to give birth naturally, it became necessary for Gemma to have a C-section. As Gemma detailed in an Instagram post about her birthing experience, Mia’s heart rate began dropping after Gemma was induced, which is why doctors made the call to deliver by C-section.
