It’s fair to say that Constance hall is one of the lucky few mothers impervious to the judgement of others. She knows exactly who she is, and she couldn’t care less if the rest of the world isn’t on board.
Case in point: this glorious snap.
Taking to Facebook earlier this week, the mum-of-five shared “favourite photo from the birth of Raja” which shows her checking her phone with a soft drink in hand, while her husband, Denim, tends to their baby.
“Welcome to the Matriarchy Densy... Queen just had a baby yo,” she captioned the shot.
Of course, the backlash was real.
“Obviously googling parental advice,” one follower commented, while others felt the need to shame the blogger's dietary choices.
But for Constance, the criticism was water off a duck’s back. In a follow-up post, she told the haters to butt out.
“Yesterday I posted a picture of myself on the phone the day my son was born,” she wrote.
“And of course it was followed by a few f***ers and their stuck up judgments about what I was doing on my phone instead of spending my every second doting and being the eternally grateful goddess mother.”
“The truth is… it’s nobodies business what a mother is doing on her phone the day she gives birth, if she’s sending her children and mother photos of the baby or googling tit jobs in Thailand it’s not your business. In fact the way another mother is mothering…. Is not your problem.”
She continued, “To clarify for you here are 2 things that are your problems. 1, if a child is being abused. Sexually, mentally, physically, or neglected, starved or not having their medical needs met. By ALL means, intervene. And when I say intervene I mean… Call the department of child protective services, do NOT bitch and moan on Facebook.”
“And 2, YOUR children. They are your problem, how you raise them, what YOUR doing on your phone, what kind of mother YOU are.”
Her words were met with a wave of support, with many fans sharing their own birth stories.
“My favourite picture from the birth of my son,” one mum captioned a pic of herself in bed with a McDonald’s Family Box.
“Amen to that!” added another. “I’ve met a few mothers who seem way too interested in the way others are parenting instead of just focusing on their own kids, I’m too busy focusing on my family’s happiness!”
