#Repost from @ameliakyoga with @repostapp I WAS a strong supporter of @the4thtrimesterbodies now I'm just mad and frustrated. @ashleewellsjaxn has started something she is trying to hide and delete and block away! She attacked this mother, threatened legal action against. Simple@photo, that in NO WAY is hurting her "work". Ashlee is stating she "owns" the look of this photograph and the hashtags associated with it. Well I say let's start our own empowering movement! #stopcensoringmotherhood #motherhoodisnotowned #postpartumisnotforsale #fourthtrimesterbodies #postpartumbodies #weareallmothers #weareallwoman #4thtrimesterbodies. ----> Amelia's story is beautiful and sad and tragic and hopeful. And she should be supported and sent nothing but love and light and support. Period. One week #postpartum. I didn't think I'd have the courage to post an image of my body for a very very long time. Not because I think I look bad, that care left me long ago. But because my swollen belly and breasts are the most real, visible reminder of the time Landon spent inside me.
However, today something made me change my mind. I was wondering why I hadn't seen any posts from #4thtrimesterbodiesproject lately. I started following them a few months ago and loved seeing the beautiful photos of mamas and their children in all stages of life, all with unique and inspiring stories. I found out that their account had been deactivated by Instagram, not once, but 8 times!
Normally this would make sad, but being on the emotional tight rope I'm on right now, I am absolutely F#@#ING outraged. There is nothing provacative, sexual or overly revealing about any of their photos. Just beautiful bodies of all sizes, shapes, ages and shades. Please go follow and support @the4thtribodies , and share share share.
This post isn't for me, it's for all the mothers in the world and the right to honor and appreciate all women's bodies. If this offends you or makes you uncomfortable in any way, please unfollow.
