PROUD MOMS SHOWING THEIR POST PREGNANCY BODIES

Most of the time, we see flawless bodies over the television, seemingly promoting something unattainable. I guess, we also have to blame the media and society for dictating what is beautiful from the not.

Only those with the perfect curves can flaunt their swimsuits on the beach.

People with stretch marks should cover themselves up. 

Those who gained pounds from pregnancy aren’t considered sexy. 

For the longest time, I believed in these too. But not anymore. In fact, I think more moms are embracing the changes in their lives. We are more than our ‘imperfect’ bodies. We carried life for months and we are proud of it. Here are some of the IG posts that I totally adore.

"No more bump shots so me and Margot have had a little selfie instead. One week postpartum and I can honestly say it's been a lot harder than I ever thought. After having an emergency c-section and delivering Nellie 3 months early I though our full term, planned section would be a breeze. Well in no way have I "bounced back" like I did with Nellie. Will my belly button always look like a cats bum hole? 😆 It's been a lot easier emotionally but I still cry at least once a day over absolutely nothing and man my poor boobies are running like taps, everything is soaked in breast milk, Margot loves a comfort feed so I've spent the last 7 days with her hanging of my nipple whilst contending with Nellie and now this silly blood pressure problem. How an earth do you mummas with more than two do it? Not that I would have it any other way, I'm still utterly and blissfully in baby paradise. There really is nothing I'd rather be doing than mothering my two girls." @sageandnellie . . . #postpartum #1weekold #1weekpostpartum #4thtrimester #newborn #babygirl #toddlermum #mumoftwo #takebackpostpartum
