Blessings to you mama!! Thank you for doing this project!

I’ve had 4 children… 2 waterbirths, a forced c-section for breech presentation, and a beautiful unassisted home birth last December. I’ve never ever had a positive body image, but have always felt beautiful and vibrant while carrying my children. I hope that one day our society respects and honors the WHOLE female, not just the maiden one. These pictures show my last pregnancy, after the cesarean. That is honestly the marking that bothers me the most. :(

32 weeks pregnant

our first nursing out of the birth pool

14 hours postpartum, and loving it!

Many Blessings,

    I am infatuated with your pregnancy photo: The way your hands are positioned creates this adorable little heart where the baby would be resting, and it struck me hard, bringing tears to my eyes. Beautiful.I love your photos with your brand new baby… it brought back those feelings of awe and power and amazement and such intense love… So moving!

    I have no pictures of my belly just after birth. Seeing yours, as you nurse, brings tears to my eyes as I remember my own body, meeting my own babies fresh out, and nursing. How special that moment is. Thank you for sharing.

    I love the last one. It has an innate serenity that’s very lovely.

    You look exhausted but beautiful, absolutely beautiful. There’s nothing more precious than a nursing baby.
