These Women Are Changing The Way We See Postpartum Bodies

It’s hard enough growing a new human in your body. Yet after giving birth, women are subjected to social media, advertising, and celebrities that say your body should snap right back to where it was 9 months ago. The postpartum reality is that every woman is unique and having a child can change your mind and body forever.

There is no ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ way to look after having a child. Luckily, some women out there are trying to change the standard by showing off the realities of their postpartum body. These strong women are beautiful and prove just how incredible the women of the world are.

Enjoy The Constant Changes

When five-time mom Brenda Stearns posted this, she didn’t just shout out the postpartum moms struggling with body positivity. She shared: “Puberty, pregnancy, postpartum, menopause… whatever stage you’re experiencing right now, I hope you enjoy the miracle of your changing body.”

A woman’s body will go through changes so many times in her life. Whether those changes are specific actions or if they are the result of hormones or a growing baby, acceptance will make the changes exciting.
