i am 21 and i have had 2 pregnancies and one birth.
this is my body 1 year post pregnancy/c section.
i was a self harmer before baby, so i have some scars mainly to my thighs, i had almost come to accept them when i got pregnant.
the babys father left when i was 6 weeks pregnant, one of the biggest issues i have with my body, is that the last time anyone saw it, it was perfect (bar the scarring) and i am scared because the next person to see it wont like it. i was happy with what i had, neat breasts, toned tummy, hourglass figure, size 14, i’m now trying (and getting close) to being happy with my size 16, lived in tummy, pear?shaped figure, and the boobies that have nourished my child for 1 year…and show it.
my c section scar is uneven, as it was an emegency section due to arriving at hospital 9cms dilated, waters bulging, with baby in transverse lie with the cord covering the cervix which would have meant cord prolapse if my waters broke. my c section scar is a constant reminder that i didn’t get the birth i desired also.
but this is me, i do love my body for how it grew my son and got him into the world. i’m just learning to love how it looks.
