On Motherhood :: On Postpartum Body Image
Maybe you saw this floating around facebook - "Babies Ruin Bodies" : An Ode to my Postpartum Body.
It's beautiful truth.
I love the photography.
This is one of my favourite parts (though the whole article is totally worthy of the 5 free seconds you have a day if you're a mom to read!)
"My body is only a vessel for my spirit.
It is an incredible vessel.
It is strong, well, abled, and undefeated.
My body is full of life.
My body is powerful.
My body made me a mother."
A while ago i read the book, Loving the Little Years and part of it that really hit me was on body image. I was struck by the truth unfolded... that i had never before been taught and that was VERY countercultural to everything we hear around us as women.
