My Body's Worth
"Nine months ago I had a baby and nine months before that, I stopped feeling like my body was my own. I felt this shift mentally as well as physically. As my bump grew, so did the distance between my body and my sense of self, everything centred on the baby while I got left behind. I felt like my body’s worth hung solely upon its ability to create life.
Now my baby has been out as long as she was in, my body is still keeping her safe, warm, comforted and nourished. It finally feels like the time to regain that lost connection. I am so grateful that my body gave me my daughter but now I intend to give my body the self love and appreciation that it deserves."
