The lovely Elizabeth Young and Jack (17 months). Elizabeth was surprised by how exhausted and sick she was during her first trimester she says she felt like she'd been hit by a truck but once she started showing she really began to enjoy things. She loved having a big belly and said she was able to go to the beach for the first time in her bathing suit and not fell like she had to suck her stomach in. She had planned for a natural delivery and ended up using gas, in part due to Jack's posterior position and the fact she was having bearing down contractions long before her body was ready for her to push. The gas was just enough to take the edge off so she didn't feel like she had to push. Jack eventually flipped over and she was able to push him out in two contractions without issue. She said that on the second push she didn't feel like she could do it but her midwife had her touch his head and she knew she had to get him out. Jack didn't fully perk up after birth and they had to take him off her chest after a few moments. He was having rapid and labored breathing so they decided to observe him but eventually took him to the NICU where he had to spend 4 days on IV antibiotics. She felt like she had to fight to get skin to skin and initiate breastfeeding but it all worked out and she ended up actually having an over supply issue. She was thankfully able to stay in hospital with Jack until he was discharged. Elizabeth says that looking at the images in the project has changed the way she sees women's bodies and it has changed the way she chooses to consume media. When she sees a woman's body airbrushed, nipped and tucked on a magazine, she has a realistic frame of reference for what women's bodies look like. She feels like she's starting to see the beauty in having a womanly body. She feels it's important to not only normalize women's bodies but also non-sexualized nudity as it relates to woman's bodies. She's tired of seeing people comfortable with objectified women while thinking that breastfeeding women are obscene.
