Stvarnost o kojoj se šuti: Žene pokazuju kako im tijela izgledaju nakon porođaja

Žene diljem svijeta objavljuju fotografije svojih tijela nakon porođaja, mi smo napravili malu kolekciju tih fotografija

Cilj im je pokazati da ne postoji razlog za sram te da je svako tijelo drugačije nakon što na svijet donese novi život. Strije, ožiljci, rastegnuta koža redoviti su pratitelji trudnoća, a ove žene ne žele ih skrivati.

 

Pokret The Take Back Postpartum nastao je 2015. godine u Americi, a pokrenula ga je spisateljica, autorica podcasta i majka šestero djece January Harshe, koja potiče žene da pokažu kako zaista izgledaju njihova tijela nakon porođaja i radi na tome da se smanji količina posramljivanja novopečenih majki zbog njihova izgleda.

The only post baby bodies I see on Instagram and the “perfect” ones…..the ones that have bounced back into wearing their crop tops and bikinis and their XS sized jeans 1 week post birth. Raise your hands if you’re months or years postpartum and still wearing your maternity jeans or had to buy brand New Jeans because your old ones don’t fit 🙋🏼‍♀️ Look I’m not saying anything bad about these perfect bodied mums. I mean good on them for bouncing back so quick. The body is amazing. A lot of it though has to do with their genes (seeming as we’re not meant to start doing full on exercise for at least 6-12 weeks pp & if you’re breastfeeding dieting can effect and depleted your milk supply). But I can help but feel a little pang every time I see a Mum with a flawless body pop up in my feed. I know their not posting these pics to make any other Mums feel bad about their body- but I guess it’s just a normal reaction to have. And that brings me to this…..why don’t we see other “normal” Mum bodies on Instagram?!! Or other platforms?!! Is it because the world doesn’t want to see anything but perfection? So only those who have that image of perfection feel that can share their bodies?! Why do so many mums have PND? Or sadness and shame when it comes to their bodies?!!! Why??? Is it these flawless post baby bodies on Instagram?? Is it that no one shows feels they can show what is the truth for millions of mums out there??? I’m talking about the bodies with scars or red vivid lines from stretch marks, the ones with the loose over hanging skin, or the extra muffin tops?!! Where are these mums?!! I know if I saw a belly like this pop up in my feed I’d be pissed I couldn’t like it more then once!!! It would show me HEY I’m not alone!!! There’s other women out there like me YAY!!! It would show me that there isn’t “something wrong” with me because I don’t have a perfect body 1 week after giving birth! So you know what!!?? I’m doing it! I’m posting my real pp body here for the world to see! You guys know I’m not ashamed! How can I be, when my body’s given me the best gift in the world! .

#BodyProudMums Louise, 29 weeks after giving birth: “I wanted to do this partly for my own self-confidence, to help with acceptance of my scars and new life. Also, I wanted to bring some attention to post-natal disease and complications. Giving birth caused me to go into sudden liver failure, due to a rare pregnancy related disease. I had to have an emergency liver transplant and spent the first month of my daughter’s life in hospital in London away from her. My shape has changed since giving birth, my scar causes my stomach to be a little disfigured and I lost most of my muscles from being in the hospital bed so long. Sometimes my scar reminds me of the surgery and the difficult recovery I had in my daughter’s early months. However, it’s also a wonderful reminder of how generous other people can be, because without someone’s decision to donate organs I would not have survived to be here with my family now.”

Absolutely gorgeous. Repost @reneahhh. ・・・ She was not quite three weeks old here. I’ve been working up the courage to share this photo for quite some time. Although I have posted one postpartum photo previously, it didn’t include my face or even the reality of what my body looked like. I strategically posed. Wore my waistband carefully. Found the most flattering lighting. Avoided including my face where I see nothing but flaws. I was embarrassed even as I attempted to be boldly loving of my new body. THIS is what having a baby looks like, for me, and for many women. It’s weight gain and swelling. Belly, face, chin, hands. Everywhere. It’s irregularly-shaped leftover belly pooch. It’s stretch marks halfway up my torso. And the real raw truth of it is, it’s HARD to accept. This is not what I want to look like. But you know what? Squishy bellies are good for snuggling tiny bodies. Stretch marks are good for life lessons. Teaching our sons and daughters the beauty of imperfection when they’re lost in a stormy sea of society’s unobtainable standards. And what you can’t see is what has changed the most: my heart. It’s lying beside me now, snoring softy, and I couldn’t imagine anything more perfect. #birthwithoutfear #takebackpostpartum #motherhood #freethenipple #normalizebreastfeeding photo credit @meganduvallphotography

For Vernette __ A story of the “SnapBack”: The internet will make us believe that women give birth and instantly jump back into their old jeans. The truth is, this is what postpartum looks like for most women. This is 2 weeks postpartum- uterus contractions, swollen belly, and hyper pigmentation. You know what? You are still beautiful mama. One day, you’ll be able to fit in that black lace lingerie. But for now, just know that you are Wonder Woman. Don’t let anyone else make you feel any bit different.

Via @michelleparis.mitchell 💫 5 weeks Postpartum! 💫 No snap back here ladies. 😂 Just stretch marks, 5 finger diastasis, and a heart full of love. 😍 After 5 weeks, I still look 4 months pregnant and I’m still a bit sore from 2 ecv’s and an emergency c-section. I have been eating well and will be starting physio soon once I get the all clear from the GP. Women are amazing and everyone recovers differrently from their unique delivery experience, what matters most is that cute little face that we get to call our own. ❤ . . . . #pregnantbelly #pregnancy #pregnant #birthwithoutfear #takebackpostpartum #delivery #labour #birth #baby #love #stretchmarks #postpartum #this_is_postpartum #postpregnancybody #momsofinstagram #5weekspostpartum #diastasisrecti #snapback #nope #newbornbaby #blackpregnacy #cutebaby #melaninmom #melaninpoppin #melaninaustralia #melaninbabies #fitnessmotivation #fitnessjourney #breastfeeding #mumlife

via @lo_ki_smitten • “Embrace your flaws.” How do you embrace what you have a hard time accepting? _ So many woman have said to me, “You’re so small after having 5 kids!” And most of the time I just laugh it off and chalk it up to genetics. _ But what they don’t know is I would have GLADLY traded places with them and the “extra” baby weight they gained. You can always lose weight but all these stretch marks are permanent. _ I’ve cried rivers, purchased every cream, oil, & soap under the sun hoping to one day get rid of them. _ Learning to love me is a journey. A tough one especially when society labels you gross like you somehow how chose for your skin to literally tear forming permanent scars. 🙄 _ Yesterday I received my waist beads in the mail I was excited. I’ve been working to Adorn the parts of me that I dislike the most. To provide them with the most love and care. I decided to share my excitement w/ someone and the response I received was not expected. “Not like you let people see your stomach anyways”. Immediate response was hurt and anger because clearly this is tough for me. I cried, then ran myself a bath, lit some candles and just sat there. After a few hours I made a decision: Embrace your flaws.” #takebackpostpartum _ Disclaimer added by @januaryharshe: I want to validate that ‘just losing weight’ is not always easy, simple, or necessary.

“How is this considered ugly? This is #Motherhood. My story, marked (literally) all over my abdomen. This is what two healthy babies and two miscarriages in 11 years looks like for me. _ Each mark represents the #Strength my body used to create #Life. For every #StretchMark I encountered on my body was for every breath, every blink, every yawn, every smile. 🐯 I longed for these scars. _ I’m five months #postpartum. I’m surprised by how visible my #LineaNigra (#PregnancyLine) still is and my stomach that was stretched past its limits is about 10 shades darker than the rest of my body. _ I may not have a flat tummy ever. But I’m not afraid to wear that old bikini to the beach this Summer. My lower baby fat and loose skin is hanging around. I’ve learned to love my #PostpartumBody and its journey.” @nazzhie_xo (via @expectful) #takebackpostpartum

MY Postpartum • This was taken just a few hours after giving birth. Real & Raw. Mesh panties, nipple shields & dark circles under my eyes. Oh, and AINT NO SNAPBACK. And I’m ok with that. This body birthed SIX kids. . . . Moms, we seriously need to give ourselves more credit… and grace! Snapping back is awesome, but so is allowing your body to take its time and heal how it wants to for as long as it needs to. There’s no deadline. In the meantime, be proud of all it’s accomplished: growing a whole human, then birthing that human, then nourishing and sustaining the life of that human with milk from that SAME damn BODY! 🤯 Do you realize how badass that is!? . . . idk why postpartum is so taboo to talk about but I DARE you to change the narrative! Stop hiding and rock that fupa/stretch marks/loose skin with pride. I know I will 💪🏾 ain’t nobody got time to be sucking in all day!🥴😩🤣

ETA: body positive includes all bodies, journeys, and choices. Period. _ “Exercise and eat healthy during pregnancy they say. That way your body will bounce back. Yeah right! 😒⠀ ⠀ First of all, I hate that this is focused towards the way we look. Exercising and being healthy during pregnancy are important for our baby’s and our health. Not just to have a certain body⠀ ⠀ Second, it’s not a guarantee that our bodies won’t be affected. This was me at 38 weeks pregnant. I followed all the guidelines for a healthy pregnancy and still was left with a forever changed body (Second pic)⠀ ⠀ But if I could go back and tell something to my 25-year-old pregnant self would be this: ⠀ ⠀ “Make it a priority to find good prenatal physical training. You may think is not necessary but it is. From teaching you how to move with a heavy belly without putting so much pressure on your muscles, to teaching you how to breathe and push when the time comes. IT’S WORTH IT⠀ ⠀ Ask questions, and don’t take your OB/GYN answer as the last word. Unfortunately most are not trained to help you. At least the two I’ve had weren’t. ⠀ ⠀ A few stretch marks are normal, but if you get to a point where you can’t count them anymore, be prepared for a hard postpartum time. That’s a big sign that you are likely to have a severe diastasis and need help to have a strong body again I know you’re beyond excited to be a mom, but don’t forget about you. It’s ok to not buy one more unnecessary thing for your baby so you can pay someone to help you figure all this out Always remember to take care of yourself first so you can take the best care of your baby Last, you’re gorgeous and your body is amazing doesn’t matter how it looks”⠀ ⠀ This is part of my story and as you can see I focused so much on my baby that I though it was selfish/ unnecessary to do something for me. The lack of information didn’t help either. ⠀ ⠀ What would you say to your pregnant self about taking care of her body?” Caption and images by @julietatorresd #takebackpostpartum

via @chelseadelaniephoto • “When you fit back into your #prepregnancyjeans but your heart starts to sink because all you can think is “my body will never be the same” _ When your breasts no longer feel the loving embrace of the tiny hands they once nourished, and all you can see is the stretch marks and “empty bags” that were once full and a lot perkier. _ When the plastic surgeon targets the hashtag #newmom and follows you on Instagram because you shared a beautiful post with you and your brand new baby in the hospital- and you look at their feed and see the before/after “improvements” and #mommymakeovers they boast on their feed. _ I dare you to reject the self doubts and seeds of self-hatred. I dare you to remember that every movie, TV show, Magazine and women’s product you see on the shelves is a carefully crafted message. A message that’s sole purpose is to make you feel inadequate in some way— designed to maximize profit at the cost of your confidence, and mental and emotional health. Messages that leave no emotional stone unturned. _ Whether your body was the sacred vessel to another soul — or maybe you have never been pregnant. Whether you’re male, female, trans, etc…. I dare you to tell yourself that you are good enough. To re-connect with the sacredness of aging, and creating new life. _ Don’t let the CONSTANT messages rob you of your #selflove. _ Please Don’t perpetuate the sick and superficial ideals of #commercialbeauty and buy a pregnant woman “stretch mark cream” for a baby shower gift. _ #stretchmarksarebeautiful and they don’t define you. #looseskin isn’t the end of the world, and #youareworthyoflove.” #takebackpostpartum

“I’ve been battling with myself about this post all day trying to get the courage to share. This is me 7 days post birth, real, raw and vulnerable. I’ve always battled with self confidence and body image. My pregnancy with Lily I gained a lot of weight and it was a daily battle with the scales. This pregnancy was different I had already gained weight due to health issues and then I had surgery at 14 weeks. Recovery didn’t go as planned and I ended up having a hospital stay but I never once got on the scales. I know my body will never be as it was it’s homed and grown children. I will learn to love every imperfect bump scar and line because without them I wouldn’t have my beautiful family.” @days.with.the.family • • • Image and words belong to @days.with.the.family. #postpartum #7dayspostpartum #postpartumbody #realrawvulnerable #babybody #motherhood #postbirth #birthphotography #birthphotographer #baby #momlife #selflove #raisingstrongwomen #tigerstripes #imperfections #newbaby #nothingbutlove #newborn #selfportrait #loveyourself #takebackpostpartum

“Time will push you to your limits, faster than you want it to, aging you in ways that make you ache, slow down, grow tired and weak. Laugh. Walk. Eat. Drink. Dance. Garden. Skip. Make an effort and stop time. Stand beneath a rainshower, let yourself become completely drenched. Nap under a tree, when the rest of the world goes to work. Get on a bicycle and go for a cruise. Drink that wine or milkshake slower than you ever thought you could… savour each drop. _ Babies will suck your energy up. Children will treat your body like a jungle gym, bruising your skin, and pulling your muscles. Jobs will have you sitting indoors for too long. Partners may take you for granted. Friends will be under the illusion that they are too busy for simpler times spent together. Musical instruments will sit in their cases, forgotten. Hair will go unwashed. First dates will be boring and waste your time. Lovers will rip your heart out and put you through emotional hell and back, leaving you gutted, insecure and distrusting. Labor and birth and early motherhood will be painful, hard and depleting; leaving you with a body you may not know so well, or feel so good about. _ The path of adulthood is textured and often, uphill. But. ❤ _ You are incredible. You are soft, and precious. Giving, and nurturing. Beautiful and sensual. _ 🔥❤You are worth honouring.🔥❤You are worth loving.🔥❤Stop for a moment, and love yourself. _ ❤🔥Repeat x infinity. _ IMAGE AND WORDS BY @elliana_allon. . . . .

Image and caption by @mygreatestwonders. ・・・ | Taken 3 days postpartum | I’m not going to share how little or how much weight I gain during pregnancy, I’m not going to talk about how slow or fast I get back to my pre-pregnancy weight, and I’m not going to reveal at what point I’m able to fit back into my pre-pregnancy jeans. Why? . Because weight gain alone is not a definitive marker of anything during pregnancy nor do I believe it to always be 100% in your control. . Because I don’t want to add to the pressure our culture puts on mothers to be/look a certain way during such an extreme transformation (whether intentional or not). . And most importantly, because I don’t want to reduce the beautiful miracle of creating, growing and birthing new life to a number on the scale. . Women are more than that… I AM MORE THAN THAT. #embracethemombod #embracetheprocess #takebackpostpartum

Oatmeal cream pie anyone!? 😋😂⁣ ⁣ There’s a first time for everything and this is my first showing my mom body that I’m falling in love with all over again 😍 ⁣ ⁣ Ya girl went from a stick to slim thick to well… idk but Im lovin it ! 🥰 ⁣ ⁣ So there use to be posts on fb talking about “oatmeal cream pie stomachs” in reference to moms like me⁣ ⁣ Moms who just had a baby that created these marvelous stretch marks and a bit of sag to the tummy. Now honestly I use to curse the person who posted it because how dare they talk about a woman after childbirth when we struggle with loving ourselves especially those who didn’t snap back like myself (God played me 😂)⁣ ⁣ But NOW I don’t give any f*cks about what people say because hey somebody is loving this body, that somebody is me 🥰 and possibly someone else 😏 ⁣ ⁣ This didn’t come easy because literally the first comment I heard a month after I had my baby is how black my stomach was. That shit made me very insecure but I’ve reached a point where my tummy became lighter on its own and where I’m loving every feature while working on what I desire⁣ ⁣ Let people talk shit because well they’re shitty 🤷🏾‍♀️ Continue to build confidence in yourself because what matters most is your view, your opinion, your self love ❤️ ⁣ ⁣ Your body is beautiful forever & always 🥰❤️⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #beautynbreast #guiltfreemama ⁣ #mombody #mombod #love #mommyblog #postpartumbody #momlife #motivation #thisismotherhood #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodrising #postpartumweightloss #postpartumhealth #pregnancy #postpartumsupport #momswhoworkout #postpartum #takecareofyourself #strongmom #motherhood #postpartumjourney #postpartumlife #takebackpostpartum #thisispostpartum #selflove #postpartumexercise
