Why I love my post partum body

Where to start with this blog. Have I always loved my post partum body? No definitely not I remember a month or so after having Ottilie Nicos looked after the girls so I could go and get some new clothes. I went to a good few shops and everything I tried on just looked absolutely awful. I stood in the changing room and cried for a good ten minutes I was absolutely horrified at how my body looked.

But now a year or so later and I love my post partum body. If you follow me on Instagram you’ll know that our newest edition Hughie is a rainbow baby as we had a miscarriage before him.

The miscarriage definitely put it all into perspective for me. I don’t know how to explain it but something just clicked I realised how lucky I was to carry another baby. The stretch marks and wobbly bits held my children and kept them safe.

I have achieved so much more with my new body than my old one. I have made three lives and one little star. Our bodies should be celebrated and admired for what they can do. Yes some people bounce straight back but this really is a very small minority, yes our bodies change a lot it’s scary, it’s hard and you may feel absolutely disgusted but remember what your body had created.

It’s real and it’s normal.
