A well rounded mother (Anonymous)

I am now over 40 with two teenage children. My few stretch marks are silvery line, my tummy is rounded and my breast sag from months of breastfeeding. I love the changes pregnancy has made to my body and am so happy I was lucky enough to experience the joy of motherhood. I loved being preganant but don’t have photos to document it like younger mums have these days, I have my happy memories. Motherhood is not for the faint hearted or vain.

    You look gorgeous! I love these photos! They are artistic and beautiful! Are you a photographer? You are so right! Motherhood IS NOT for the faint hearted or vain! I want to commend you, too, for making it through the teen years! I’m nervous about that… I’ve still got twelve more until my daughter is a teen, but it’s scary to think about lol!

    you look fantastic, and i totally agree with you. But its hard not to be so vain or for me: self conscience. But I hope to gain that same wisdom and acceptance in the years.

    I just wanted to say that your breasts look amazing! When I was a teenager I always thought my mom’s breasts looked horrible – but she was really lucky and ended up with beautiful ones like yours after three daughters and fifty years! Now that I have my own daughter, I envy women like you and my mother who really lucked out in that department! Mine are ten times worse and I’m only in my twenties!

    I wanted to write and tell you that as a father of 8 I find saggy breasts delightful. My wife nursed all 8 of our children and just recently turned 50. She is to me still extremly attractive as her body changed from the births and kept natural.

    I am not a photographer, these were just some ‘selfies’I took one morning at home. Black and white is a great medium for body photography when the lighting is good.

    It is almost 5 years to the day since I took these shots and I’m still proud to be a mother of now grownup children and my body that produced them. I wouldn’t change a thing about my body, it’s big and rounded but I’m comfortable with that. My husband of 22 years has never told me I look beautiful or that he loves any part of my body, I really don’t know what he thinks of my post baby body, sometimes I wish he would let me know.

    I am so glad I had the opportunity to be a mum and experience all the bodily changes it imposed on my body. Stand tall and be proud of your motherly shapes.
