Honest Photos Of Post-Baby Bodies

At the point when a big name shows up in the media not long after she’s had another infant, you’ll presumably hear many inquiries concerning what she’s doing to “ricochet back.” Yet the appropriate responses won’t be 100% genuine. That is the point at which the Instagram account called @takebackpostpartum ventures in. It spreads body energy, urging new mothers to grasp their extend marks and other pregnancy fight scars.

That sibling kiss! ❤️ So much love. 👉🏽With our venue chosen and announced we have opened 50 more tickets to the ✨Winnipeg Conference✨ on October 13th! This sold out so fast that if you did not get a chance to get yourself or friend/partner a ticket grab one now at bwfconference.com! 👉🏽Should we add a VIP option to this conference? _ Shared by @elliana_allon, “The last time I saw this mama, she was in a postpartum room, pregnant, brokenhearted and crying, for her sister, after the sudden passing of her sister’s full-term baby girl. After touching base with her wonderful sister this morning, and receiving her blessing, I went out and celebrated this family’s new blessing…. a healthy new baby girl. My heart was swollen with memories of a sweet angel baby named Aspen, and of her ever-loving, ever-grieving parents. My heart was swollen for this family, who also lived through that loss, and hurt for them, but also have this amazing blessing to honour and celebrate. What an impossible challenge it must be, to hold up such extreme, visceral human emotions and somehow balance them through, already, tumultuous postpartum period. Loss. Life. Birth. Death. Love. Pain. Memories. Grief. Hope. Love. And more Pain. What a thing, this thing called Life.” @elliana_allon _ #postpartum #postpartumbliss #postpartumgrief #loss #pregnancyloss #fulltermloss #babymoon #breastfeeding #newborn #takebackpostpartum #birthwithoutfear #strongmother #grievingmother #grief #thisislife #lifeispain #loveispain #painislove #ellianaallon

“Our transformation from one to two was a magical moment, my sweet boy 🌿 / / Okay, a really late post but I’m up and this is just too good not to get in before the day is over. Took this today, nearly six weeks postpartum vs. us at 35+4weeks. Little did I know then that this sweet boy would stay in there three weeks longer than his sister, five weeks longer than his big brother, and nearly make it to our EDD! Such a beautiful journey, but the end was filled with all the typical, very uncomfortable end of the third trimester symptoms this time. We’re so happy you’ve been earthside with us nearly 6 weeks, baby brother! You are just the sweetest, most handsome baby boy! We love you, baby E!” @motherofbabies #takebackpostpartum #birthwithoutfear

“Well, I know a lot of you guys are probably thinking ‘why would she post this picture’, but, it took me 18 months to get here, 18 months to not cry when I look in the mirror, 18 months to finally feel beautiful in my own skin again! No one warns you about the dark sides of motherhood and pregnancy.. no one gives you a heads up on how much you change physically and mentally after you become a mother. It’s been a long and hard postpartum ride for me.. 18 months after my first son and 5 months after my second son I feel like I can finally see the light ✨ and it genuinely feels amazing. 💖 Cheers to you mamas who are battling postpartum depression and still getting up everyday for your children! Cheers to you mamas who still cry about the marks on your skin from birthing your perfect babies! Cheer to motherhood, cheers to knowing that this too shall pass! And things will get better.” 💗 @alexandrabrea_ ©2017 by Alexandra Kilmurray All rights reserved _ #motherhood #postpartum #postpartumdepression #babies #takebackpostpartum

@ellianagilbertphotography, “This was me, 8 days postpartum. I was exhausted, sweaty, milky, crusty, still bloody, a bit sore down there, sore everywhere else in my body, my breasts were engorged and working in overdrive to support both my newborn on one side, and my 2 year old on the other – it was the only way I could nap them, so this is how we did it, I’d tandem nurse them both, and I would try to close my eyes as well, because, essentially, I would be trapped in that spot for the next 2-3 hours. This was my life for the following year, more or less. This isn’t the only way to do things, certainly not the only “right” way to do things… but it’s how I lived through my first year with a newborn and a toddler, and I don’t regret any of it. But, god, did it ever take a toll. Almost 4 years later and I am still working to climb out of the fog that was my life back then. I’m getting into a gym regimen now, and am taking better care of my gut, and how I feed myself, I no longer breastfeed and I have my body back to myself, which is SO GREAT – even though, every time I think about nursing my girls, my heart feels pinched and swollen and I tear up. ❤ It is a time I will forever cherish and feel proud of. I look at this photo and I can just FEEL the sacrifice. I love capturing the beauty of new parents in this phase of life. The beauty in the sacrifice is unlike anything else – the rawest form of beauty there is. I am glad this photo was taken of me – even though it was just a cellphone pic. I’m grateful that someone noticed and bothered to recognize me in that moment. Ask someone to snap a pic like this of you too. Don’t be shy. It’s worth it. People don’t think of it… You have you ask for it. You won’t be sorry. You’ll have that pic forever to look back on and remember what a BADASS you were during such a trying time in your life. A professional photographer is a luxury not affordable for everyone. But you can ask a close friend or relative to snap a pic with their or your phone. You won’t regret it.” #birthwithoutfear #takebackpostpartum

“Why be ashamed? A life grew inside of you that gives humanity hope of change. You felt things that I as a man will never understand. Even when you first held your baby girl or boy it was nothing similar to when they lay in their father’s hands. Your body changed and so did you. It became a look into the past of what you went through. You grew mentally and emotionally and your spirit was taken to places you didn’t think it would ever go. Your breasts may sit differently. Your ass may not be as thick as it once was. But why should it be when you gave so much of yourself to help all of us. A sacrifice of sorts if you choose to see it that way. But to me your body now is exactly how it’s supposed to be. So don’t be ashamed. Don’t hide your changes from the world that you and your sisters helped create. Be proud of your story. Be proud of your lines. Be proud of who you’ve chosen to be.” @expressionsuntold___ _ Muse: @sereneradianceyoga Photo by @expressionsuntold___ #birthwithoutfear #dontforgetdads #takebackpostpartum

“Deep breaths…..this is me. This is my body. My body as a cancer survivor, as an amputee, as the mom to 3. I have the scars to show the battles I have fought, I have the stretch marks to show the babies I have grown. My body tells a story, it’s shows my journey……. And yet I have never been so hard on myself and how it looks as I have now. I’m 16 months postpartum, I’m still nursing. My stomach is still soft and my breast will never be as perky as they once were. Today I had to stop the nitpicking… I had to be kind to myself and I had to try to look at myself the way the people I love see me. I had to look at the amazing things this body has done. How can I see only faults in a vessel that has given me so much? This is MY body.” @treeoflifedoula3 #takebackpostpartum

“Can you feel this image? The fatigue, the weightiness, the exhaustion, the postpartum body still reeling from the effects of having been pregnant for so many months, reeling from the birth experience, reeling from the last 3 or 4 sleepless nights… The clothes that were worn in pregnancy are still clothing your body because you’re still swollen. Your innards haven’t yet moved back after baby left…. Baby gets a good latch, family leaves you alone for a brief heavenly period, and you close your eyes and completely submerge into sleep, it’s the only sleep you can get, even if it only lasts a few minutes. Gratitude swirls around you, for the partner who’s looking after food for the children, for the friends who drop off meals and herbs to support you, for the wind in the trees, that wafts in to your room and caresses your hot and sticky and cheesy skin and refreshes your mind and spirit… So much to be grateful for. So much to cry about. So much to smile about. So much to sleep off. 🌪🌟Birth is like being hit by a freight truck carrying life in all its madness. You survive the hit, but you’re covered in the madness of life.” 🌟🌪🌠🚚🎆 Words and image by @ellianagilbertphotography. #takebackpostpartum

“The reality of being a #twinmom: the dreaded #looseskin or what I like to call my #twinskin 😉 The first year after having my twins, as I lost the 60+lbs I had put on, I was mortified by my stomach, the stretchmarks/tears, and the looseness of the skin. Although I can’t in all honesty say I particularly like it, I have become more and more confident, and proud of what my body was able to accomplish! My abs are getting more and more toned and defined as I continue to count macros and workout & run daily, but my poor belly will likely never be the same, and today I am okay with that.” 😙 @twin_momma_fitness _ #takebackpostpartum #lovetheskinyourein #postpartumbody #loveyourself #confidence #inspire #motivation #youdontknowmystory #bodypositive

via @shelivesfit _____ Here is a little tip for the insensitive: never ask when a woman is due unless she personally brings up her pregnancy. There are so many crazy insecurities that come along with a postpartum body that one rude comment (or a few) can truly send a woman off the emotional deep end. ______ Yesterday at work another patient asked me when I was due. I had just introduced myself and was getting her ready for the doctor; after her comment, I had to keep myself composed and friendly for another 25 minutes before being able to excuse myself. Afterward, I took a pumping break and wept. ______ I know I’m not the first to experience such things, nor the last. I am indescribably grateful for the beautiful human my body created and continues to nourish with my milk- and I wouldn’t trade him for any level of fit bod. But there is definitely a sense of loss in learning to accept where I am right now physically and emotionally. For the past five years I have made a presence and personality for myself as Fit Whit- a health coach, vegan, runner, yogi… Now I am mom. At 15 weeks pp, I’m still adjusting to life as I now know it- working mother. “Getting my body back” just doesn’t rank highly enough in priorities to sacrifice any of my precious hours with my baby in a work week or risk dipping my Breastmilk supply. ______ So for now, I sport a pooch. I have the #mombod. I struggle with insecurities and will continue to cherish all that my body has done to bless me with my baby. ______ #takebackpostpartum #likeaqueen #15weeksout #postpartum #motherhood #stretchmarks #tigerstripes #womenempoweringwomen #confidence #bodies #mama #newmom #thisismybody #thisisme #realbodies #reallife #boymom #selflove

“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. 😜” @a.plus.k via @earthmamaangelbaby #TakeBackPostpartum #postparum #birth #motherhood #dontforgetdads #birthwithoutfear
