I am a proud mother of 2 amazing children, the youngest just 9 months old. I’m currently at the lowest weight I’ve been since middle school….I’m 25 now. I am an aspiring photographer & took this nude self portrait of myself to post on am artistic nude photo forum to show that a post pregnancy body….stretch marks & all could still be sexy & appealing. My husband would definitely agree that it is. However when I posted this picture I was met with a question, “why would you post the damage that childbirth has done to your body?” I was in shock, although I guess I should have been prepared for such comments, but that particular comment came from a married man who admitted his wife had similar “damage”. I felt horrible, not just because of the comment, but for that poor mans wife….I hope she doesn’t know that he sees her probably gorgeous body in such a way. I took down the picture after that comment. I should have had the guts to leave it up, but it was a moment of weakness….who wants to be judged, especially so harshly? I realize now that his opinion does not matter to me, what matters is how I feel about myself. I feel beautiful & womanly, and that is what I am….a beautiful woman.
