The lovely La Shawn Thompson and Laila Grace (20 months)
La Shawn was 36 when she conceived her daughter and says that while she was enjoy being free she was so ready to have a baby. She was newly married, had a great career, and was so happy. When she was a few months pregnant, La Shawn was diagnosed with depression. "I had nothing to be depressed about. I was married to the man that I prayed for, had an amazing career and I was happy. At least I thought I was". The depression continued after Laila was born and it was one of the most difficult times of her life. "I couldn't shake it off no matter what I did. Today I can say that I am feeling much better. I can breathe again. Laila was worth every second of it. I wouldn't have changed it for anything. It was all a part of the journey and for that I'm grateful".
La Shawn learned of 4th Trimester Bodies Project while researching for a new blog launch. "It touched my soul when I read the stories. The women looked so beautiful. Instantly I knew I needed to be part of it. Our stories of motherhood, need to be shared."
