Toto sú skutočné fotografie mamičiek po pôrode. Ich telo je krásne v každom momente!

Hovorí sa, že tehotenstvo je najkrajším obdobím v živote ženy. Aj napriek tomuto prívlastku si toto obdobie nesie svoju daň v podobe spľasnutého tehotenského bruška po pôrode, jaziev a strii. Neostáva nám však nič iné, len obdivovať ženské telo, ktoré dokáža za 9 mesiacov vynosiť malé bábätko.

Pred niekoľkými rokmi bola táto tema hotové tabu, no dnes sa o nej hovorí viac než kedykoľvek predtým. Ovisnuté bruško je realitou všetkých žien po pôrode a tak by sa za to nemala hanbiť ani jedna z nich. Žena by si mala uvedomiť, že pod srdcom vynosila krásne bábätko a v porovnaní s bábätkom je pár jaziev či strií úplna maličkosť. Portál Brightside chcel poukázať na krásu ženského tela a tak zverejnil niekoľko pravdivých fotografií žien len niekoľko dní po pôrode.

I used to weigh myself every morning. I would always make sure to go to the bathroom first. There would be a rush of anxiety as the scale blinked while I stared down in anticipation. It was the moment that would depict how I approached my day. Would I be positive and embrace the day happily because the number was a whole .1 lower than yesterday morning? Or would I angrily start brushing my teeth and threaten myself to only eat a salad for today because the number was a whole .1 higher than yesterday? This was how I lived. It was destroying me. And I was completely convinced that this was the only way to be happy. This was the only way I would get to where I was supposed to be in order to become a mother. I repeated to myself that the only way to be happy was to be skinny. So I lost weight. And it never felt like it was enough. I worked out only to lose weight, rather than the way I do now where I focus more on how it makes me feel. But then I had Maci. For the first time, I felt thankful for my body. There was a moment after she was born that I stood in the hospital bathroom just before I took my first postpartum shower. I was only in my robe as I stared into the mirror. I almost remember it in slow motion because I had avoided a mirror for years, even throughout most of my pregnancy. Locking eyes with myself, I tugged the string and the robe separated a few inches. I froze for a few seconds before I let the robe fall down to the ground. And there I was. I saw me for what felt like the very first time, but after another few seconds, I closed my eyes. I turned around and walked towards the shower. This moment was just the beginning of my self-love journey. It doesn’t happen quickly. But it never would have happened had I not tried. 💗 #this_is_postpartum

Time will push you to your limits, faster than you want it to, aging you in ways that make you ache, slow down, grow tired and weak. Laugh. Walk. Eat. Drink. Dance. Garden. Skip. Make an effort and stop time. Stand beneath a rainshower, let yourself become completely drenched. Nap under a tree, when the rest of the world goes to work. Get on a bicycle and go for a cruise. Drink that wine or milkshake slower than you ever thought you could… savour each drop. Babies will suck your energy up. Children will treat your body like a jungle gym, bruising your skin, and pulling your muscles. Jobs will have you sitting indoors for too long. Partners may take you for granted. Friends will be under the illusion that they are too busy for simpler times spent together. Musical instruments will sit in their cases, forgotten. Hair will go unwashed. First dates will be boring and waste your time. Lovers will rip your heart out and put you through emotional hell and back, leaving you gutted, insecure and distrusting. Labor and birth and early motherhood will be painful, hard and depleting; leaving you with a body you may not know so well, or feel so good about. The path of adulthood is textured and often, uphill. But. ❤ You are incredible. You are soft, and precious. Giving, and nurturing. Beautiful and sensual. 🔥❤You are worth honouring.❤🔥 🔥❤You are worth loving.❤🔥 🔥❤Stop for a moment, and love yourself.❤🔥 Repeat x infinity.

I may be a little softer but ultimately I am stronger and these marks just remind me of where I once tightly held and grew Emilia Ren. This body, ME, I may not be the same but if she can find so much comfort and safety in this body, I will as well. || #3weekspostpartum 🌿

Niełatwo jest upubliczniać takie zdjęcie. Brzydkie rzeczy chowamy, nikt się nimi nie chwali. Doskonale pamiętam, jak bezskutecznie szukałam w internecie brzuchów podobnych do mojego, całych pooranych rozstępami po ciąży, by podbudować się myślą, że nie jestem jedyną. Moje ciało jest niesamowite – przez 9 miesięcy stworzyło i wydało na świat nowe życie. Nie zapominajmy jednak, że matka to wciąż kobieta. Odsyłam Was do posta, z powodu którego mój blog w ogóle powstał. #rozstepy #tigerstrips #cialopociazy #postpartum #brzuchpociąży #ciałomamy #brzuchmamy #mummytummy #mlodamama #postpartumbody #postpartumbodyrealities #stretchmarks

„My body looks just like yours!“ is the WHOLE point of this account. I was sitting in my little corner of the world swearing up and down that I was the only person who looked like me. It’s a lonely feeling. Made even more lonely because I had been convinced that stretch marks and scars and loose skin were disgusting. Not even gonna sugar coat it. This is how extreme we view these things and it’s all a complete distraction and waste of our time and energy. We have a life to live, laughter to share, and love to ignite the passions that drive our purpose. We have endless gifts to share with the world and we can’t even begin to think about it if we’re constantly lost in our alleged brokenness and feelings of shame. This feeling stops us from being able to do more than rock a crop top. It stops us from pursuing opportunities, relationships, and pleasure because that’s how deep these issues run. When you say you’re afraid for your partner to see you, what you’re really saying is „I don’t want to be rejected for having failed to deliver on an expectation that I’ve been told is easily preventable if I cared and worked hard enough. So, if I am rejected it’ll be my fault.“ I know. I said those things to myself, too. Thank goodness that I listened to that tiny tiny voice whispering „that’s bullsh*t. you know it and if you don’t believe me, try me.“ Here I am yelling now THIS IS BULLSH*T. YOU KNOW IT. IF YOU DON’T BELIEVE ME, TRY ME. Be a whole person thrusting yourself towards the gifts meant for you and then share them with the world that needs them desperately. 💖✨✨✨✨✨✨✨ #bemorethanabody #stretchmarks #scars #takebackpostpartum #looseskin #scarrednotscared #mummytummy #effyourbeautystandards #stopcensoringmotherhood #mombod

It’s an understatement to say that pregnancy changes a woman’s body. * * This is what a postpartum body looks like for most women after giving birth. Not everyone goes back to their normal size. Not everyone is „lucky“ to enough to not get stretch marks and not everyone has a flat tummy. I have extra skin, stretch marks. And guess what? IT’S BEAUTIFUL. I’m not a size 2 anymore, I’m a size 8. I don’t weigh 114lbs anymore, I weigh 135. * * I look at my stomach and at first glance- I’m not going to lie, I’m disgusted, but when I stare a little deeper I look at the sight of a miracle. In awe of the fact that my body supported life and carried five babies, (one I never got to meet). * * What if? What if we could really see the beauty in our amazing bodies instead of disgust and looking at all the things we need to „change“ or „get rid of“. * * What if we all looked at ourselves in the mirror every day and said five things we loved about ourselves? What if we saw pictures like this and only saw strength, bravery and love? * * What if we all realized that rolls, stretch marks, extra skin, and fluctuating weight are all NORMAL? * * What if.. what if we just loved our bodies, unconditionally, in and through every season of life.

Well, I know a lot of you guys are probably thinking ‚why would she post this picture‘, but, it took me 18 months to get here, 18 months to not cry when I look in the mirror, 18 months to finally feel beautiful in my own skin again! No one warns you about the dark sides of motherhood and pregnancy.. no one gives you a heads up on how much you change physically and mentally after you become a mother. It’s been a long and hard postpartum ride for me.. 18 months after my first son and 5 months after my second son I feel like I can finally see the light ✨ and it genuinely feels amazing💖 cheers to you mamas who are battling postpartum depression and still getting up everyday for your children! Cheers to you mamas who still cry about the marks on your skin from birthing your perfect babies! Cheer to motherhood, cheers to knowing that this too shall pass!

I was a skinny girl since childhood. Though I looked undernourished, I always knew in my heart and in my mind that I was healthy, but it was not the same thinking the society had for me. All the neighborhood aunties would tell my mother to give me something to eat and question „Don’t you give her food“ „She looks malnourished“. My mother would go shopping for my dresses and she would always buy outfits in which I would look plumpy. My family used to joke of me. Example being „On windy days they will tell me to remain inside the house otherwise I might get blown away with the wind I remember vividly my ex-boyfriend telling me that I don’t have a front or back assets. He constantly used to say I should eat chocolates and junk food to gain some „Meat“ on my „Assets“ I got so thin shamed that I landed myself to a gym. Simply because I was fed up with all the people speaking about me and I wanted to end it by gaining some weight, via guess what – that’s right {Supplements} This did not stop even after marriage, with someone questioning if my husband earns well monetarily or not – and does he keeps me well fed? And now, after delivering 2 babies people’s opinion has moved to the other side. They now say „I have gained weight, and that I don’t look the same“ Point is there always be somebody who think it’s okay to critize someone based on there physical attributes. Tell them that we are wonder women who comes in different shapes and sizes.I know it’s take time to ignore these hurtful comments and move on. Hence sharing few lines from one of the articles I read online „When you’re confident in what you’re wearing, you learn things about yourself that you never knew, and you remind yourself that you possess so many more qualities than you realize“ PC: @Shriyak #bodyshaming#postpartumbody#love #motherhoodunplugged#mommylife#india#societysucks#youarebeautiful#confidence#FittoFight
