Mum bares all to remind us “I’m not the same person I was before I had babies, so why would I want my body to reflect something and someone I no longer am?”
Puffy face, droopy milk filled boobs, wider hips and belly full of stretch marks!! That’s my post baby reality, no ‘bouncing back’ here! shares blogger House of White.
Olivia, a mum of two young girls, Annabelle & Teddy continues, “And you know what? I couldn’t give a shit! Because I’m not the same person I was before I had babies, so why would I want my body to reflect something and someone I no longer am? sharing a photo of herself stripped bare.
Those droopy boobs fed my babies and grew them up big and strong. Those hips and rippled belly was home to my little babes for 9 months.
It might not be the ‘transformation’ body so many ogle or aspire to! And sure, some days I wish it didn’t jiggle so much and was a bit ‘firmer’ but then I just remember the awesome shit it’s done and cut myself some slack and go eat a cheeseburger, because we earned it”
Her post has attracted over 1k reactions. Why? Because she speaks exactly what all mums need to hear. The truth!
We love mums who say it how it is and don’t maintain expectations that are way out of reach. Good on you, Olivia.
