"I’m now more than ever in love with my body. I did not realize the greatness my skin and flesh had to offer, until it created life. I’ve never felt as beautiful as I did while pregnant, and now I embrace my body for it has grown a perfect little person, and 5 months later continues nurturing it with its own perfect recipe.
Trust yourself. You not only created a child, you became a parent. Stop getting overwhelmed by the perfection books, media and every other baby “expert” preach. Your instinct will let you know what is best for your baby. Allow yourself to make mistakes, learn, and if needed, change course. Rock your motherhood crown with confidence… It’s only the toughest, scariest, most satisfying title you’ll have!
This project has allowed a safe haven in a time where we are attacked and repressed for not being perfect. My 4th trimester was a sacred time of transformation, of becoming a mother and getting to know my brand-new baby. A time where I felt the most powerful, but also the most vulnerable. This project gives mothers the spotlight to open up, and bare all they’ve become in this time of transformation. I’m proud to participate along such beautiful and courageous mommas, and hope it influences many more."
