this is what postpartum bodies really look like

Yes, the postpartum period is a magical time, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t hard, too. There are maternity pads, leaky boobs, saggy skin and stretchmarks… need we say more? So why do we so rarely see that real, raw side of motherhood? Scroll through social media and it’s all ‘snap back’ pics and smiling mamas with perfect babies so we LOVE that these moms aren’t afraid to show the rest of us what it’s really like.

This realness here is everything

Who remembers this moment? 

Honestly, who hasn’t done this at some point?
