Body by Baby

Many of us feel embarrassed of our post baby bodies. Some of us are surprised that we didn't snap right back to our pre-baby bodies. The truth is, no matter how fast you bounce back to your pre-pregnancy state, you will never be the same. Be it from stretch marks, wider hips, sagging breasts, or just a new state of mind about your body, you are now forever changed by the miracle that is childbirth.

So, because Gisele and all her friends make it seem like stretchmarks don't happen, I started Body by Baby. Stretchmarks do happen. So does saggy skin. And saggy boobs. And that is ok. Because we are real women. Our bodies aren't perfect. But they didn't get this way on their own. They got this way because we are fucking awesome and CREATED A HUMAN IN THEM. What's a stretchmark or a muffin top when we actually made life?

This is what a real woman's belly looks like. This is what having beautiful babies does to a girl. And it is awesome:

This is Ashlee from Momchalant. She is the mom of a 1-year-old little boy named Noah.

Here is her story:
This is my tattoo. I got it on my 18th birthday. I even asked the tattoo artist if it would get messed up when I had kids later down the road. We both thought it would be fine but as you can see from the wasn't. The top is the day I got it and the bottom is after I had my son.
I actually had my son at 19 (accidently) so I also thought with my age, it would be great to show women that even at 19 a baby can take a toll on your body. It's hard for me to see all of my friends running around in their bikinis while I'm stuffing my fat in my pants...but hey, I grew a human. What can they account for, right? : )
Thanks, Ashlee. You are the shit for sharing with us what we all hide from each other.
