    I`m a 29 years old mom of twins – from Bergen, Norway who watched the show on Norwegian television.
    I think your website is beautiful and the way it was presented in the show was great.

    You’re website has been seen several times in Norwegian medias this last weeks.
    For eksampel her:

    Love from a “wiewer” in Norway :-)

    I’m also a Norwegian, not a mother though, but I love your project. I have quite a few friends getting children now (I’m 33), and it hurts so much to see what some of them are willing to do to “get back in shape”, and I really can’t understand this unwillingness to accept that _the body changes_ when you have children!

    I think that we need so much more realistic views on what is “normal” and this “yummy mummy”/”skinny mum”-trend we see in the celebrity magazines is really dangerous.

    I know also of several other women – bot mothers and not-mothers – who really like your side, so great project and all the best to you! :-)

    I just watched the programme and had to search for your page afterwards. I LOVE what you’ve done! It’s been more than 14 years since I gave birth now, but I still remember how I went on a diet to loose weight only a couple of months after giving birth. Insane really. (I still don’t look the way I did before getting pregnant, anyway…) :-)

    Best wishes from Oslo, Norway

    I’ve actually known about this site long before it ran on the tv-show. It’s been written about in Norwegian media on several occations prior to being shown on national television. I think the site is absolutely awesome! Me and my boyfriend are contenplating having a child, but I worry about losing my figure, and not feeling sexy. This site shows us the reality. that the “Can you believe she had a baby six weeks ago”-celebrity stories in the tabloids are not the norm, quite the opposite.
    I’ve actually shown the site to my boyfriend, and I realized that my fears are absurd. These are beautiful pictures of real women, and bodies that have carried miracles.

    Creds to your website, creds to the fact that it’s spreading knowledge and beauty around the world! Let’s stop living up to impossible and crazy examples, and embrace our REAL bodies.

    Love from a Norwegian reader and FAN!
