“When 20-year-old Kylie Jenner introduced her newborn daughter Stormi to the world, I wondered, “should I be thinking about having a baby anytime soon?” You see, I’m 20 too, and to me it feels like a vague in-between stage of life where I’m no longer a kid, but also not yet a full-fledged adult. I don’t feel ready to become a mom, but, like many people my age, I spend a lot of time on social media to see what people my age are up to. And as I scroll down through my social media feeds, it looks like they’re up to getting pregnant! I’ve noticed this trend in my own entourage, knowing quite a few people my age who are already parents. I can’t tell for sure that images on Instagram played a big part in them deciding to become parents early in life; but I see that, just like many of the young momfluencers, their Instagram feeds revolve a lot around motherhood.
While I’m still not sure I’m ready to jump into motherhood yet, these little squares on my screen give me hope for when that time comes.They tell me that life can be fun with kids around; and seeing young women owning their role as moms — whether they choose to work at home, stay at home, travel or go back to work — makes motherhood more accessible and less frightening for all of us.” -our very own Emily Murphy digs into this “insta trend” and how it’s helping empower moms of every age.
