This image has gone viral after one mum shared “This is motherhood; it’s raw, stunning, messy, and freaking hilarious all rolled into one.”

Amanda Bacon’s Facebook post has gone viral receiving over 420K reactions and 110K shares.

She shared an image of herself in a diaper with the caption “Motherhood uncensored.

I’m sharing this picture because it’s real. This is motherhood; it’s raw, stunning, messy, and freaking hilarious all rolled into one. Having a baby is a beautiful experience, and the realities of postpartum life aren’t spoken enough about. And definitely not photographed enough. Some people probably find this uncomfortable, but why? I seriously don’t get it! It’s probably because this part isn’t talked about. We all should try and educate, empower and embrace every aspect of childbirth, including moments like this. And do it while having a sense of humor. Nothing says welcome to motherhood like an adorable squishy baby, and a giant mom diaper. “

Truer words have never been spoken.

  • Oh yeah….The weeks after having bub are not pretty at all. Adter I had my first and then went for a shower my husband freaked out and said to the nurse “Is all this blood normal?” ….she just shruged and said “Yup…it sure is”


  • Yep, she sure is telling it like it is.


  • Oh yes, definitely the real side of motherhood! :)


  • I don’t really have a problem with this photo, but it is part of an over sharing trend…


  • Nothing wrong with being real :)


  • Motherhood brings with it so many new eye-opening experiences – all worth it.


  • Wow she is one brave lady! But yes it’s the truth. That’s what happens.


  • yep when I had my first child I had no idea about all the after birth things that would happen! So i was shocked and embarrassed – we definitely need to let first time mums to be know that it isn’t all pop out a baby and that’s it!


  • I saw this yesterday, it can be real for a lot of mums


  • There are many funny sides to having a baby that are never talked about. Thanks for making me smile and being truthful about the dark and seamy side. Hope you keep up your good humour for the whole of your child’s life. There is always a funny side if you care to look for it. Cheers


  • Quick and easy – lovely carbonara recipe.

    • Sorry – don’t know how this happened – I was obviously making a comment about another subject.


  • Haha thanks for sharing.


  • This child is going to have a fun time growing up with her Mum having such a great sense of humour. I didn’t find anything offensive about it. Dad seems to be enjoying himself too


  • Having humor makes being a mum so much easier! Well done! :-)


  • Great diaper. Certainly not what out Grandmas had to manage with.

    • No – they had to manage in quite difficult and labour intensive ways. Thankful we have more convenient methods available for our use.
