Do you want to know something that is easily in the Top 10 of Things That Piss Me Off The Most in the Entire World? The way that our culture treats people's bodies after they've given birth.
Let's think about this: the person who spends 9 months growing both physically and emotionally in so many beautiful ways, who sacrifices, and learns, and changes, who endures pain, and pressure, and fear, and who has done something as powerful as house and bring ACTUAL HUMAN LIFE INTO THE WORLD... is then expected to feel like a failure for not 'bouncing back' to their pre-baby weight?! THAT MAKES ME SO ANGRY. 🔴
Our bodies are not rubber bands that are meant to snap back to their original size after every event that alters them. Our bodies are supposed to grow and change, to age and carry all the signs of our lives on them. I can't think of any event more worthy of those changes than giving birth.
Every stretch mark. Every scar. Every bit of skin that's looser than it was before and every part that hangs lower. Plus every extra pound that you gained along the way that's stuck around. None of these parts of your body are shameful. You never should have been convinced that they are. ✨ #pregnancyisbeautiful #thehumanbodyisbeautiful #bodypositive #momlife #postpartum #postpartumbody #bodypositivity #selflove #selfcare #feminism #feminist #mood #goodvibes #lifegoals #inkedmama #inkedgirls #sleeve #inspirational #learntoloveyourself
