I just found an interesting site called The Shape of a Mother*, where you can send in pictures of your post-pregnancy body to show what a real mom looks like after having a child. No air-brushing here, ladies. The author says this of her site:
It is my dream, then, to create this website where women of all ages, shapes, sizes and nationalities can share images of their bodies so it will no longer be secret. So we can finally see what women really look like sans airbrushes and plastic surgery. I think it would be nothing short of amazing if a few of our hearts are healed, or if we begin to cherish our new bodies which have done so much for the human race. What if the next generation grows up knowing how normal our bodies are? How truly awesome would that be?
Let’s celebrate our bodies… not be ashamed of them.
*Warning, there are some full n*ked body shots before you open the site at work or somewhere else questionable.
