It’s not always neat bellies and perfect breastfeeding moments. Sometimes, it’s the realisation that your body isn’t going to bounce back and your baby doesn’t want to latch.
• Why do we only see neat little 6-month pregnant bumps, then a happy mum holding her baby fully dressed?
• Why do we not know what a postpartum body even looks like?
• Why have most women never seen a body post birth until they have their own baby?
Unfortunately, a lot feel shame when they see their refection, particularly once they’re past the initial 2 months. The women in this video share their bodies and their mixed emotions to help the next woman. To normalise a postpartum body and to prepare other women that might become mums too. As a community we owe them a lot, I applaud their bravery in breaking the silence of this subject and giving so freely to help the next woman and to stand up and show the world their beauty.
