How has parenthood impacted your body image?
Parenthood has empowered me and shown me my own strength. Being able to carry a 20+ lb baby all day while juggling everything else it takes to be a mother, wife, student, nurse and woman has only proven this to me. While others have tried to shame me into covering up while nursing, the freedom and love I feel with my son eliminates their negativity.
What is your truth?
You and your baby were, are, and will always be a part of you. Listen to yourself!
Why did you choose to participate in this movement and share your story?
I came for female empowerment, overcoming obstacles, and antiquated ideologies.
