I’m working on some big changes for this site soon! Don’t worry, they are all good. I’m going to be moving it to it’s own domain soon which, among other things, is going to make it much easier for you to participate, and much easier for me to upload photos (I’m way behind currently because I can only upload them when Blogger is in the mood, which is not often).
In order for this to happen, I’m asking for some help in donations through PayPal (button in the sidebar). If you can spare anything, it would really help get this site up and running! I am also working on a store through Cafe Press and I’m looking for ideas for items you’d be interested in. What sorts of sayings would you like on a shirt, tote bag, bumper sticker, button and other items? Leave me a comment and let me know!
I’m really hoping to reach out to as many women as we can and I know this site has changed my life – I hope we can change the world!

“A mother’s body is beautiful. Period.”

Hi, Evie!!! :)
I agree your blog title is the perfect slogan! YOu could not get any better!T h e S h a p e o f A M o t h e r
I love love LOVE your site…although I am still too chicken to post, I come everyday so I feel like I “fit in” somewhere, in a world of achieving the perfect bod…mine is FAR from it…and acceptance is now my biggest nemisis….but its coming along…lolThe idea of “The Shape of a Mother” is great…but maybe in addition, on the back have something like “We’re all different” , “I’m Lovin it” or “Its what makes us beautiful” just some random thoughts :)
*ahem*I don’t know about suggestions for products, other then get thee a book deal. I can’t think of what would make a more lovely baby shower/mother’s day gift.
“Stretch marks are a badge of motherhood”
I recently saw a shirt at a discount store that said “I’m in Shape. Round is a shape.” Which I have been known to say from time-to-time! If I could find one in my size, I’d wear it all the time.I love the site and plan to post as soon as I can get some pics taken! Thank you for doing this. :)
I posted a piece of my art earlier and stated how I was going to do a series. I am willing, if you are, to sell my art to whomever is intersted and donate 1/4 of the money to this site. This is an amazing place for all women to join together. You have used your talent to start it up, now I would like to contribute my talent to help continue it.You can email me at Lindseymyers@snet.net
I also would be interested in contributing. I own a Prenatal and Postpartum Fitness Company called One Fit Mama. Our slogan is ‘Love Your Baby, Love Your Body’. I think it’s perfect for this site! The name and logo are trademarked, but I’d be happy to work something out to sell my current shirts and baby onesies on your site and contribute a portion of the money to this cause. (Great idea, lindsey!) Let me know….You can check out my site at https://www.onefitmama.com.
This is an awesome page/website…I am soo intrested when you move it over even to advertise on it (if your going to do that)…as well as donate now! :) Every little bit helps! I really beleive in this site, I know I come here every day to read the posts, I posted my own story on my blog with pictures…and feel that your blog as brought my body image up…I have long suffered with depression and used to be what they call a “self mulitator” which I am now somewhat sad to say (Not totally becaue it has made me stronger as a person) but, your site has helped me relize that the scars I have not only from my “Babies” but also from cutting myself, are in there own way beautiful…in there own way a reminder of my past…a past I would not like to return to and a past I am happy to say I have left in the dust!Thank you, is the only thing I can say…this is an awesome idea, and a wonderful site! ((((HUGS))) and Bless You!BTW…on a side note, I emailed my sister your link she had just found out she was prego, she is a bit over weight and it made her smile, she is now going though a miscarrage but they plan to try again soon, and it made her happy to see that you really CAN be comfy with your body!
I am also available for donations as well! I think that is an awesome idea! :D
