Kaže se da je trava uvijek zelenija u susjedovom vrtu, a to je često točno. Žene koje imaju kovrče žele ravnu kosu, one koje su visoke sanjaju da su niže i obrnuto. Influencerica Desiree Fortin dokazala je da to vrijedi i u slučaju strija na trbuhu nakon porođaja.
“Na svaku ženu koja je nesretna zbog strija, dolazi jedna koja bi ih voljela imati”, napisala je i pojasnila da je biti majka blagoslov koji, nažalost, nemaju sve žene. Zbog toga smatra da bi tijelo nakon porođaja trebalo slaviti, a ne kritizirati.

“For every women unhappy with her postpartum marks, there is one wishing she had them.” I love this quote. I once was her, the "one," waiting, wishing, hoping to be a Mother. Finding out I was finally going to be a Mom was one most incredible feelings. It didn't matter whether I was going to give birth naturally or have a cesarean (however you do it, you’re amazing). And it didn't matter that my body was going to change drastically. I was finally going to be a Mom, a Mom to triplets! And although I never imagined my body would look the way it does now, it represents so much more. There is a lot of extra skin, stretch marks, sag and wrinkles. And while my new Mom body may be hard to love sometimes, it is a new me that represents the power of the female body and the miracle of carrying three babies. As I have shared before, I call my postpartum marks my "Hope wounds" and they have taught me a greater meaning of self-love and appreciation for my body. I think that it is important to change our Mom body perspectives. There is empowerment for yourself in loving yourself. Our postpartum marks are stories of hope, stories of love, and sometimes stories of loss. There is so much beauty in our Mom bodies because above all they represent life, our children, and the undeniable love we have for them. For the "one"somewhere wishing, hoping, praying for her miracle, this is for you. For the one who delivered and lost your baby, I know these are all you physically have left of your angel. You are strong mama. And to all the Mama's struggling to love themselves: you're beautiful, strong, and may you be empowered to love yourself a little more today!! Choose to change your perspective because your beautiful! Bra/Undies: @knix >>> the most incredible bra and underwear I own!!!

Fortin se prisjetila koliko je i sama željela, nadala se i čekala na majčinstvo.
“Kad sam saznala da ću konačno postati majka, to je bio najnevjerojatniji osjećaj koji sam iskusila. Nije bilo važno što će mi se tijelo značajno promijeniti. Konačno ću postati mama, mama trojki!”
Priznala je da nije sanjala da će joj tijelo imati toliko viška kože i strija, ali to joj nije važno.

There are many #FacesOfFertility 💕🌈 We all have a story, a journey, whatever that may look like, to become Mothers. For some, maybe it was a surprise or maybe you got pregnant just as you planned. Or maybe after trying for years your miracle baby finally arrived. Or maybe it was adoption papers and bringing your child home! Or maybe it took shots, stimulation meds, and a whole lot of money, like it did myself after rounds of fertility treatments. We all have a story, a journey. However, for some, their journeys to become Mothers ended empty handed. 🌈 Today is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness. If you’re a Mama who has experienced this kind of loss, today I think of you and remember your baby who was welcomed into Heaven’s gates far too soon. I wish I could wrap my arms you and remind you that you aren’t alone. I wish I could sit with you and listen, cry, or say nothing at all, but just be there. 🌈 A few years ago I sat in a hospital room with one of my best friends who sat with her baby in her arms who passed away moments after he was born. It was pure devastation. The kind of grief I felt for my friend as she held her lifeless baby in her arms was excruciating. My heart broke for her. He was her angel baby and his name was Hudson Reed. He was tiny, beautiful, and had brown hair just like her. Today I think of him and the many friends and family in my life who have experienced pregnancy and infant loss. Your story matters and I’m sorry you had to go through such loss. 🌈 There are many #FacesOfFertility and for some the only thing left of their baby are the scars on their tummies and the love in their hearts. You can share your story using #FacesOfFertility and @knixwear will donate $1 to @resolveorg and @fertility_canada ❤️ All my Love.
“Ponekad je teško voljeti novo tijelo, ali ono prikazuje snagu i čudo. Naše strije imaju priču o nadi, ljubavi, a ponekad i gubitku. Toliko je ljepote u našim tijelima jer prikazuju život, našu djecu i beskrajnu ljubav koju osjećamo prema njima”, dodala je.
Mnoge žene su se složile s njom i poručile da je doista teško donijeti dijete na svijet i sve majke zaslužuju da se to prepozna.
