Read this! Powerful words by @getmomstrong

We stay quiet.
No one tells us about the changes that take place after we have babies. We only see the “bounce back” adorned on the cover of the magazine as we wait to buy our groceries.
We stay quiet.
We stand in that grocery line unloading our produce onto the conveyor belt and think to ourselves, “I wonder if that Tummy Tea would help?” “I should have used that stretch mark cream more often.”
We stay quiet.
We don’t talk about the stretch marks. We don’t talk about our loose skin. We quietly trade in the bikini for a one piece...because why would we want to offend others with the ungodly sight of our postpartum body?
We stay quiet.
We are taught that a mother’s body is something to be hidden. Those are the unspoken rules and we have to follow the rules. After all, we are mothers now.
We stay quiet.
We don’t seek help when we pee ourselves or have discomfort long after childbirth. We blame ourselves. “I really should have done more kegels,” we think.
We stay quiet.
Our culture has dictated that the “ideal” is a flat tummy and the ultimate compliment is from the stranger who says, “My goodness, you don’t even look like you’ve had a baby.” We compare ourselves to others, and ask what we did wrong to have such a flawed postpartum body.
We stay quiet.
What if we weren’t so quiet? What if we knew that a part of becoming a mother meant likely having a changed body? And what if we celebrated that? What if we celebrated those stretch marks as a symbol of how strong our body was and how miraculously it housed our great loves? What if we stopped blaming ourselves and started be gracious with ourselves instead? What if we TALKED about the changes that happen, so that all postpartum bodies were embraced? What if we gave women resources so they didn’t write off postpartum pain as simply a side effect of having a child? What if we helped women focus on how they felt instead of how they looked? What if?
What if we didn’t stay so quiet?
