Not many of us would be game to have this photo taken – and also share it, but Australian new Mum Alyce, showed us how amazing and how real women look, when Melissa Jean Photography captured her one hour after giving birth to her son.
The photo which was posted on the photographers Facebook and Instagram pages has gone viral with so many praising the mum for her honest photo and self acceptance of her body. Comments on the FB post included “Go mama!! Looking fantastic 1hr post birth!” “Beautiful mama glowing like the goddess she is!” “love her confidence” “Perfect and real”
In a world where celebrities post pictures of their ‘perfect after baby bodies’ and online sharing of photos that make your life look perfect, it is so good to see a real photo, which I believe is more beautiful than any celebrity body shot.
Were you proud of your body after birth?
