A few months ago, while complaining of my saggy skin to Aunt Michelle, she pointed me to this website, called shape of a mother, a website out to prove that the shape of a mother is a beautiful thing! (because it is!) Women submit stories about post-pregnancy bodies and share, comment on them. I submitted my story awhile back, thinking I would never hear from them again, but today I got a comment from someone who read it, since it is on the front page! I have loved reading through this website (especially those poor mothers who had mutliples!) and realizing that I am not alone in my post-baby body insecurities. There is something so powerful in knowing someone before you has "been there, done that." and is willing and open enough to talk about it.
Just a fair warning, (even though my post contains no nudity), there is some nudity on the site (since people send in photos along with their stories), so clicker beware... and you've probably heard it a million times by now, but here is my story, as written for SOAM.
the link is here: Shape of a Mother - Ruth
Or you can avoid the possible nudity on the site and read my post here:
