I’m starting to learn that it’s ok not to be ashamed of my body. My stretch marks are long red and wide but they helped to create the beautiful 2 year old boy that sleeps in the next room. My breasts sag but they nourished him. My hips are uneven but it doesn’t matter. My battle scars remind me what it is to be a woman. They are beautiful.

I’ve watched your site for some time now… and I’m finally ready to share. I know I’m not the only one :).

    Thank you for your post! You are very brave and your body is beautiful. It is all worth it when you see your little ones. I wouldn’t have changed anything.

    You have much to be proud of. You look great, mama! (My 2-year-old loves my breasts – to her they mean love and nourishment.)

    Thank you so much for posting your pictures!!! My stretchmarks are just like ours and I have always thought about how ugly they are. Now, seeing them on you, I see how beautiful mine must be as well.

    These pictures could be of my body. How strange to see someone with a body that is soooo similar to my own.

    Your body is so beautiful! My husband chases me around the house now, with my stretch marks and huge breasts (40ddd), than he ever did. Girl, we are beautiful these bodies make us REAL women. I have a career, a husband, and three babies; that stuff on television is bull because those women you see don’t know what real life is. You are beautiful, use that sexy body to make your husband realize why he got you pregnant, make him squeal your name and be confident.

    thank you for posting these pictures. 6 months after the birth of my son, the skin on my belly is still sagging like a deflated balloon. it’s been hard for me to accept the changes to my body, even though of course my son is worth it, especially since none of my other friends with babies seems to have had the same problem. seeing the changes in other mothers’ bellies is really comforting.

    Wow, I will never look at my stretch marks the same way again. I thought I was the only one with stripes like mine! We earned them, for sure! Thanks so much for submitting these!
