When I first found Shape of a mother, I was moved to tears. I was inspired. I was proud. I wanted to be a part. Finally, many months later, I was able to find the time to shoot these pictures of my marks. Marks of Motherhood. Marks of Fertility. Marks of Nurturing. Marks of Pride. Marks. My Marks. They will be with me even after my children have left. Reminders that once, I supported not one, or two, but three lives inside my womb. Marks of Labor. Marks of Love. Marks of the Knife. Marks of Experience. I will never look at them the same again…

I find this site amazing. This is the first time in over 14 years that I look at my body in a positive way.
For a long time wanted a tummy tuck to get rid of the marks of motherhood, not because I didn’t want to be a mum, but because I was ashamed of what my new role in life did to my body. Since finding this site last year I don’t think of surgery as a “solution” anymore, most days it doesn’t cross my mind.
Thanks to those wonderful women that share their photos
form someone that is not that brave…yet.
After I saw all this beautiful pictures from other mom’s. I decided to love my body more and defently planning on posting my pictures at a later time. I gave birth to 7 children and nursed them all for a long time and my body shows, just all that.
Love to all
