"I had to accept that I am not perfect, I need to accept my body for what it is now. I do not want to project the body image issues of my past on to my daughter. I want to ensure I show my daughter that I am a physically, and mentally, strong woman. A woman she can look up to!
I cried a lot when Coco was first home from the hospital. I cried because we were never supposed to have a child (Coco was an IVF baby). I cried for parents who were not as lucky as we were, it was almost a level of guilt. As I felt better post-birth, the sadness faded and I was able to be present in the gift we had.
These stories of love fill my heart. I don’t have a deep story, but I have a desire to leave my daughter with strong message through this movement. Love and accept yourself, and others, unconditionally and with that great rewards will come to her!
Take life with a new baby one hour at a time. Slowly life becomes easier. Don’t let the difficulty of caring for a new baby cloud your moment. Embrace every moment because it is an ever-changing journey.
