The Shape of a Mother

I just came across this great website called The Shape of a Mother. It normalizes what all mothers experience postpartum...their body shape changes! As a mother, we will usually all lose most of the pregnancy weight, but our body shape (& very often the appearance & texture of our skin) changes. The area around our waist tends to droop a little more from the stretching of our bellies to accommodate our baby's body. Our breasts may change shape too. Some of us may have stretch marks. This site shows real women with real postpartum bodies. Truly beautiful! Check it out & see for yourself at
