To Posh to Push...

Most of us that have had children know how hard it is to take off that last 10lbs. from however much you gained with each baby --and then you see some actress at the Oscars, two days after giving birth, wearing a size 2 dress.
There are now stories being printing about how this is possible. Apparently (accoring to celebrity docs) the "Hollywood Mommy Trend' involves a planned C-section a few weeks before the due date -to avoid that final weight gain- and a mini-tummy tuck at the same time (this trend is being called 'Too Posh to Push' after David Beckham's wife, the ex-Posh Spice)(source). This is kinda've sick and twisted. The baby's lungs are the organ that is developing in the final weeks --and to electively choose your figure over lung development is pretty F'ed up. How many of these Hollywood offspring need nebulizers and will develop asthma?
