    I’m very interested in this Postpartum Photos. Please let me know what you need from me. I feel this would be an amazing experience as I never suffered from PP with my son, but my unborn daughter might be different as we found out she has a rare heart condition. She will need a few surgeries before she is one. My fiancé also does work out of town and I have a 19 month old. My life is about to get a real reality check and this would be amazing to be documented as I’m not sure what I’m in for.

    Look forward to hearing from you.ReplyCancel

    A mother’s beauty

    . “I am a firm believer that we need to break the mold that society has built on how moms and postpartum bodies should look….I stopped body shaming myself, and I truly feel comfortable in my own skin now. My body tells a story with every stretchmark. And I love that!” . Amanda, 27 ....

      These pictures are absolutely amazing and I think that all the Mothers are beautiful! ! We need to stop putting a size 0 model as our standard for beauty when in reality we are all much bigger a size! !ReplyCancel

      This brought tears to my eyes! As someone who suffered mild postpartum psychosis I wish it had been around 8 years ago. The message here is amazing and so so important for new and old generations alike. I would be interested in doing a session to support this if you need/want people. :)ReplyCancel

      I don’t understand.. are mothers being body shamed more than any other category of people???

      I’ve never once heard of someone confronting a mother in person and saying “wow you’ve really let yourself go”. But why??

      1st reason: people are cowards, sending a message is way less personal than speaking in person, obviously if you don’t know the person this even makes it a million times easier to shame someone.

      2nd reason: most people don’t walk around in public in a bikini, sure people go to beaches but an online post can see 100x the amount of look-e-lou’s..

      IN CONCLUSION
      Don’t post pictures to social media sites.. ever!!
      what’s the point??
      You obviously want to be judged.. and therefore you will be
      Just remember not everyone is “nice” or “happy”..ReplyCancel

      sono italiana,ho 41 anni e due figli.
      da quando 20 anni fà ho avuto il mio primo figlio,il mio corpo si è trasformato.
      io avevo la taglia 38,un corpo sodo e muscoloso per via dello sport.
      la pelle però ha ceduto e la mia pancia si è riempita di smagliature e il mio seno è crollato.
      non mi sono mai accettata,rinunciando al mare coi miei amici per non mostrare il disastro che mi sentoReplyCancel
