My Real Postpartum Body: I Want Every Mom To Know That It’s Normal And You’re Beautiful

When my first son was born, the changes in my body took me by surprise. It was not just the weight gain – it was the hormones, the emotions and the fatigue. I felt like I was barely surviving – and I thought surely other women must feel this way too.

There’s so much pressure to bounce back into your skinny jeans after childbirth, but physical appearance is only part of the story. So when my second son was born, I decided to document the “brutiful” – that’s brutal+ beautiful – truth about those early days up to 14 weeks.

I also wrote about my daily reality with a toddler and a newborn. I shared all this in the hope I could show one mum that what she is experiencing is normal and she is not alone. I want every single mother to know: you are beautiful, you are amazing, you are a mother.

Wow another reason for me to never have children. Thanks for showing, I was pretty sure before but now I'm just really happy to never have children.

I understand and respect that not all women want or are meant to be mothers, but I don't think that losing your figure should hold you back - if that's the only reason you don't want children. I was also concerned about my postpartum body when I was pregnant but I bounced back pretty fast. Looks will eventually fade and there's only so much any of us can do about it. Holding your child in your arms and hearing him say "I love you mummy" is priceless and I wouldn't trade it for the best figure in the world.

normal and acceptable, yes! beatiful? sorry but no, is not beautiful. A man should love his wife always? Yes! That's all.
