I showed you my real post-partum belly seven weeks after Maya was born, hoping to show what a non-airbrushed, non-celeb belly looks like.
This week, Babble.com put out a request for people to share their post-partum bellies on their Facebook wall or email them to an editor.
I figured, what the heck and submitted mine to the collection. Today the pic went up.
It was so cool to see myself amid all the other post-baby bellies of all different shapes and sizes. Truly, pregnancy is an amazing and beautiful thing. Though my vertical linea negra is gone, my C-section scar is still there, albeit fading … a reminder of how Maya came into this world through a tiny 4-inch incision.
So there you have it. The girl afraid — even at her thinnest — to be seen in a bikini … posted a pic of her post-partum tummy for the world (read as: Babble community) to see.
If you’d like to share a pic of YOUR post-partum belly, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. The more the merrier!
