REAL LIFE.

POSTPARTUM BODY

You just grew a tiny human in your belly. You felt kicks, punches, and hiccups. You may have had nausea or heartburn. You may have felt every ache and pain as time got closer to delivering. You may have gotten stretch marks. You may have gained 15 pounds or 50 pounds.

IT’S OKAY.

It’s okay if you have stretch marks.

It’s okay if you don’t look the same before pregnancy.

It’s okay if you don’t lose the weight right away.

IT’S OKAY.

Although I gained 14 pounds during this pregnancy but have lost a total 30 pounds, my body will never be the same. I was so insecure with this new body but then realized that not every woman will be fortunate to carry a baby.

Please do not feel ashamed over your new body.

I’m not.
