YES! Dit Instagram-account laat de schoonheid van post-baby lichamen zien

Hulde voor alle moeders!

Vrouwen kunnen keihard zijn voor elkaar. We willen allemaal de taille van een bamboestokje, maar die sociale druk is onrealistisch. Helemaal als je net bent bevallen. Dat laat nu eenmaal zijn sporen na. Dit Instagram-account doorbreekt alle taboes en omarmt juist de schoonheid van post-baby lichamen.

Je hebt een compleet mensje, met tien vingers en tien teentjes op de wereld gezet. Dat verdient wel een lievere beloning dan de verwachting dat je vlak na de bevalling weer in maatje onmogelijk past.

Pro post partum

Celebrity’s met personal trainers en nanny’s lukt het misschien, maar het is niet te doen om jezelf aan deze maatstaven te meten. Want naast het voeden, verschonen en troosten heb je überhaupt amper de tijd om zelf te ademen. Laat staan te sporten.

Het Instagram-account @takebackpostpartum begrijpt dat maar al te goed. Daarom vullen zij hun fantastische feed met foto’s van moeders die net zijn bevallen en allemaal even prachtig zijn. Een dosis body confidence die elke vrouw wel kan gebruiken. Bye bye Insta-fitgirls, lang leve ons lijf!

"This is a picture I most likely will not keep up for very long. This is me, at the peak of my postpartum depression. I asked Shiloh to take a picture of me, so I could remember how far I’d come, if I ever came out of it. I was lower than low, I wasn’t even myself. Looking back at this photo I remember perfectly the pain I felt, the dread in waking up everyday, the physical pain that engulfed me from thoughts in my brain. I had never known consuming, mind altering emotion such as this that flooded every fiber of my being, making its way through my veins like a plague. This is what postpartum depression looks like, or at least what it did for me. I didn’t want to leave this life, but it seemed like the only way that would rid me of the pain I was in. I didn’t ask for it, it wasn’t welcome. But there it was, and I kicked its fucking ass and beat it to the ground before I let it consume me, or much worse, take my life." @themanifestingmamma #thisisppd . . . . #ppd #postpartumdepression #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #overcomingppd #mentalhealthsupport #communityovercompetition #stopcensoringmotherhood #motherhoodunited #motherhoodrising #motherhood #takebackpostpartum

"Well, I know a lot of you guys are probably thinking 'why would she post this picture', but, it took me 18 months to get here, 18 months to not cry when I look in the mirror, 18 months to finally feel beautiful in my own skin again! No one warns you about the dark sides of motherhood and pregnancy.. no one gives you a heads up on how much you change physically and mentally after you become a mother. It's been a long and hard postpartum ride for me.. 18 months after my first son and 5 months after my second son I feel like I can finally see the light ✨ and it genuinely feels amazing. 💖 Cheers to you mamas who are battling postpartum depression and still getting up everyday for your children! Cheers to you mamas who still cry about the marks on your skin from birthing your perfect babies! Cheer to motherhood, cheers to knowing that this too shall pass! And things will get better." 💗 @alexandrabrea_ ©2017 by Alexandra Kilmurray All rights reserved _ #motherhood #postpartum #postpartumdepression #babies #takebackpostpartum

#realitypost Unwashed, unbrushed hair, soft and squishy belly hanging out, big sore boobs and red throbbing nipples, breast pads sticking out everywhere, bags under my eyes and sore arms from holding a 5kg 4 week old half the night. But a full heart, a smile still on my face and all the love for this little guy. Shout out to all the new mamas. You are doing amazing and an absolutely incredible job. {@ah.fitty} #takebackpostpartum _ Our Kansas City and San Diego #findyourvillage evebts are in a few weeks! Each have a few tickets left.

Yup. This kid is upside down. Trying to unblock a milk duct 😂😂 Post partum looks a little like this 👊🏽 ✔Tired as fuck ✔Leaking tits ✔Infected and blocked milk ducts ✔A floppy gut ✔Uneven boobs ✔Tears (quite a few) ✔Covered in baby shit, vomit and piss ✔Bleeding cracked nips ✔Pretending you are listening to your 7 and 9 year old but you don't know what the fuck they are saying ✔Eating and drinkng more than you did when you were pregnant As you can see its super glamorous and I wouldn't change it for the world. Also this need to "bounce" back ? Our bodies carried a human for 40 weeks, birthed the bloody thing, the last thing we shoukd worry about is loosing weight, or getting back to normal, or trying to be a hero and do everything. I learnt my lesson with the first two. It does sweet fuck all for your mental health Thank your amazing body for doing such an awesome job. Don't expect too much from your self and remember this too shall pass. From a blistered nipple mumma xx @benessa_v #takebackpostpartum
