I was so touched by the words woman wrote about their bodies after have given birth to their children.
I myself feel so unpretty, now that I am a mother and went through pregnancy and birth. My whole body takes part in this: my breast which grew to melonsize, my belly with all the dark red streams and lines, and even my vagina which wasn´t stiched up properly after i had torn pushing out the head of my beloved boy.
After birth was over, I felt I was locked up for any sexual thing which could eventually go on in the future. Since I am a single parent, I too lost hope to find a man who could love me in the close future.
But still … I loved the experience of being pregnant and now being a mother. But this all didn´t only leave wounds on my body but also in my soul.
The first picture is taken now – almost 3 month after birth. The second picture shows my 28th week pregnancy belly – which I was very proud of.
