Mom over 30

I have been really depressed over the years about my body. I have always been small chested, not even a full A cup. I have had four children. Breast fed the youngest past a year old. My cup size ranged from a before pregnant to probably a DD. Then back down to a 30B (technically [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

I am their Motherbear! (Motherbear)

3 giant baby bears + short torso = this crepey saggy skin! It just sort of hangs there after losing weight. But you know, some pretty wonderful people began life there so I can appreciate it for the sake of nostalgia. And for those of us who have our abs cut through a few times, [...]

Art by Babies (Bonnianne)

This is me. Your SOAM host. This was a big deal for me to share. I wrote a little bit about it on Instagram: I created SOAM almost ten years ago and I don't think I've ever felt as naked as I do right now in sharing this photo. And I'm pretty sure I've actually [...]
