In a world where everybody seems to be striving to portray themselves in the most Instagram-worthy way possible, Laura Mazza decided to do the opposite and show the world how things really are by posting these honest before-and-after childbirth pictures on Facebook.
“On the left – This was my body before kids,” wrote the Melbourne-based blogger and mom of two on Facebook. “No stretch marks. A belly button that was high. A flat stomach. On the right is me now. People don’t want to see this photo. It’s not pleasing to the eye anymore. It’s not a body to be admired. But you know what? I have achieved more with this body, then I have with my old body. I’ve lived more, I’ve given more, I’ve enjoyed more. I’ve made life. This body, THIS body should be celebrated and admired. No matter what size you are, a size 6 or size 60. You deserve to celebrate it.” Well said Laura!
