I’m a 25 year old mother of 2 boys a 3 month old and a 9 year old. Although I love my boys dearly I battle daily with my self image. I know I should be proud of what my body has done, it has nourished and delivered 2 beautiful babies but often what I see is a reflection of a body that should not belong to me. Its disfigured and not that a vibrant, young 25 year old and it has brought me to tears so many times. I find it hard to accept compliments because I know if people saw what I try so hard to keep covered they would think differently. But stumbling across this web site has really helped me realize that I am not alone and being a woman/mother is beautiful, sexy and empowering! I’m not saying that I’ve come to terms with my body but I think I am making small steps at accepting motherhood in its entirety! So thanks all of you who have shared your wonderful stories and beautiful pictures and to the creator of this website!
