The shape of a Mother

I’m still on break but I found this site today and must share it with you.

As women and mothers we are constantly bombarded with images and stats of societies idea of the “perfect” body.  The Shape of a Mother is a site where mothers post pictures of their POST-pregnancy bodies.  The site is to celebrate the beauty of a mother’s body.  It is a very lovely and moving site. Warning:  There are some nude pictures so the site is NSFW (not safe for work).

  1. I am just looking around this site and it’s funny that looking at others you realize you either, a. don’t look as bad or b. look worse but not any worse than some others. 🙂 Thanks for the link.

  2. Fantastic link! I am just building my fitness website with main focus on mothers and just added this link. I find the Hollywood craze about size 0 and being perfect after pregnancy simply sickening. What I try to get across is HEALTHY eating and not dieting, and fitness to make you generally feel better with more energy for the kids. I hope that this site is an eye opener to show that what is seen on TV, in magazines … is unrealistic and unhealthy in the long run.
    Thank you very much
