Becoming a Mother Taught Me to Love My Body

"Becoming a mother taught me to love my body.

This is me 10 months postpartum.

Since having my beautiful little girl, I’ve grown to accept and love my body for what it is. Even though I’m the heaviest I’ve ever been in my life.

My tummy housed my baby for 42 weeks, my body kept her alive, and my breasts continue to feed and nourish her now that she’s no longer inside me.

My body is amazing. My body is my temple. It’s not perfect but I love it. It’s mine. 💛✨"


"Convertirme en mama me enseñó a amar mi cuerpo.

Este es el mes 10 desde que parí.

Desde que tuve a esta hermosa niña, he crecido para aceptar y amar mi cuerpo por lo que es. A pesar de que nunca había pesado tanto.

Mi vientre le dio hogar a mi bebe por 42 semanas, y mi cuerpo la mantuvo viva, mis pechos continúan alimentándola ahora que ella no estar dentro de mi.

Mi cuerpo es maravilloso. Mi cuerpo es un templo. No es perfecto, pero lo amo. Es mío."
