My Body: 3 Years Postpartum (Anonymous)

I am a mother of 3, my last one was in July of 2013. I was obese at the time, and my son was a 10-pound baby, so my canvas was not the cleanest when I set myself to lose weight. I went from an unknown weight (probably 180, 5ft2in) down to an average of [...]

It is What it is (Anonymous)

3 years Post partum. 2 c sections, 32 years old. I had severe undiagnosed perinatal depression with my first child, leading to me demanding a c section or I was going to throw myself off of a ledge. I was terrified and didn't want to ever be left alone for fear of what might happen. [...]

Before there was you… (Lilola)

There was just me, my story starts typical enough, married my high school sweetheart at 18yo, we were happy just being together conquering the world. Time passes by and I was 24yo, wondering where was time going. I was also wondering why no children yet, why no pregnancy scare, why no monthly periods. So at [...]

I'm always struggling with accepting my new body. I know we should not dwell on the negative of child birth when the positive is two beautiful girls now 6 and 5. I'm 30 now but still struggling with insecurities. I would love to be this fit mom but with a full time job getting out [...]

It Happened (Chrissy)

I was enjoying a rare empty house! No kids no spouse. So I decided on a load of laundry and a nice long hot shower. My clothes were not dry yet so I just laid in my comfy bed and surfed the net...with just a shirt on,while I waited for my clothes. The warm bright [...]

After my first pregnancy, I was very unhappy with my body. I stopped eating healthy and my weight yo-yoed constantly. When my son was 2 years old, I found out I was pregnant again and I cried. I wasn't ready to add another child to our mess. I was a nervous wreck. I even kept [...]

Struggling to Accept My Body (Anonymous)

I have had two beautiful children, an 8 year old and 4 year old. I'm 34 now and I feel like since my second child and since hitting my 30's my body is much different then it used to be. My breasts are much less full and perky and my stomach will never be as [...]

The Result of Growth (Chloe)

I'm built very petite (5'2", 100-105 lbs when I'm not pregnant or nursing) and yet three times, I've given birth to nine pound babies (my boys are almost 12, 9, and almost 7). It's taken me time, but I've learned to love, honor, and respect the fact that my body that so often feels so [...]
