Na rozdiel od plodenia detí, tehotenstvo a pôrôd nie sú žiadnou prechádzkou v ružovej záhrade. A aj keď sú sociálne siete plné celebrít (skutoňcých alebo tých internetových), ktoré sú po tom všetkom krásne, perfektné, blažené a usmiate, pôrodom to pre mnohé ženy ani zďaleka nekončí. Presne tejto problematike sa venuje blog s názvom Take Back Postpartum.
Je o úprimnom pohľade na popôrodný život, rodičovstve a o pozitívnom vnímaní samej seba. Za blogom stojí matka šiestich detí, January Harshe, ktorá vie, čo hovorí: „Dámy, ak chceme spraviť zmenu, musíme ju spraviť samé. Naučila som sa, že každá žena bojuje s pôrodom úplne inak. Snažím sa ukázať všetky môžné variácie, ktoré sú po pôrode a v rodičovstve normálne.“
"I may be a little softer but ultimately I am stronger and these marks just remind me of where I once tightly held and grew Emilia Ren. This body, ME, I may not be the same but if she can find so much comfort and safety in this body, I will as well." @whenalexsmiles ❤️ #3weekspostpartum #takebackpostpartum

"I've been wanting to share this for awhile now. Almost everyday, I receive messages from other Mums asking me how I look the way that I do. How I got my 'pre baby body' back. Here's the truth ladies – I DIDN'T. I have the excess skin. I don't have stomach definition the way I used to. My hips are a little wider. I don't want there to be any misconceptions. My body did not just 'bounce back'. Now having said that, I work very hard to maintain a healthy lifestyle and to FEEL good in my skin. I may not ever look the way I did before I had the twins. And you know what? I'm OK with that. _ I have arms. I have legs. I can see, hear and experience life. My body has done amazing things, why on earth would I punish it? _ Learn to appreciate what you have. It doesn't mean you have to stop working for what you want, just show a little self love along the way." 💕@twinmamadiaries #takebackpostpartum
"16 M O N T H S #postpartum after my twin pregnancy . 30 kilograms get and lost in the shortest time. My mother's body has made three children and two births. A caesarean section, excess skin, pregnancy strips, and muscles that have pulled apart #rektusdiastase. That's me. The miracle of life.@ ♥ @derstillzwerg . . #miracleoflife #takebackpostpartum #motherhoodrising #postpartumbody #caesareansection #notks #postpregnancy #mombod #dickbauch #dickbauchdienstag #embracethesquish #afterbabybody #bodylove #positivebody #mombody #mutterkörper #motherlove #mutterliebe #motherhood #mother #♥ #twinspregnancy #twinsinside
"Despite how difficult my postpartum was and sometimes still is, what I see more than anything when I look at my Hope wounds is a beautiful and loving Mama trying to do all she can to provide the greatest love and care for her miracles. I see a strong woman who not only fought and conquered infertility, but spoke up and ultimately didn't let postpartum anxiety and depression beat her. There is so much beauty in that when I look at my Hope wounds." @thefortintrio _ Celebrating my Scars.

"I'm sharing this picture because it's real. This is motherhood; it's raw, stunning, messy, and freaking hilarious all rolled into one. Having a baby is a beautiful experience, and the realities of postpartum life aren't spoken enough about. And definitely not photographed enough. Some people probably find this uncomfortable, but why? I seriously don't get it! It's probably because this part isn't talked about. We all should try and educate, empower and embrace every aspect of childbirth, including moments like this. And do it while having a sense of humor. Nothing says welcome to motherhood like an adorable squishy baby, and a giant mom diaper. 😜" @a.plus.k via @earthmamaangelbaby #TakeBackPostpartum #postparum #birth #motherhood #dontforgetdads #birthwithoutfear
"had debated on whether or not to do this photo… But I wish someone would have shown me the reality of postpartum. Normally when I see these type of photos the woman has an adorable round belly then a nice (maybe a bit squishier) toned belly holding her baby and it's just precious. Not here. We don't all get that bikini body back. I won't ever be rid of these marks–the saggy, soft skin. I've grown two humans (a 7 and 10 pounder!) and the satisfaction of that is what helps me when I look in the mirror. This is by no means 'beautiful' to me, but it's real. After my first pregnancy (which was basically perfect!) I had no idea this is what my body would be left to. With all the childbirth and breastfeeding classes we took I wasn't told about this. I wouldn't let my husband touch me for awhile.. and still my stomach is pretty much 'off limits'. It was embarrassing and quite depressing. It's taken me awhile to be accepting of the new me, and while I'll always tease my husband about my 'mommy makeover' he owes me (aka tummy tuck and lift) I stand thankful for this mommy body that I know so many childless women would trade in heartbeat." ❤️ @tmariephoto #birthwithoutfear #takebackpostpartum #postpartum #variationsofnormal
"Well, I know a lot of you guys are probably thinking 'why would she post this picture', but, it took me 18 months to get here, 18 months to not cry when I look in the mirror, 18 months to finally feel beautiful in my own skin again! No one warns you about the dark sides of motherhood and pregnancy.. no one gives you a heads up on how much you change physically and mentally after you become a mother. It's been a long and hard postpartum ride for me.. 18 months after my first son and 5 months after my second son I feel like I can finally see the light ✨ and it genuinely feels amazing. 💖 Cheers to you mamas who are battling postpartum depression and still getting up everyday for your children! Cheers to you mamas who still cry about the marks on your skin from birthing your perfect babies! Cheer to motherhood, cheers to knowing that this too shall pass! And things will get better." 💗 @alexandrabrea_ ©2017 by Alexandra Kilmurray All rights reserved _ #motherhood #postpartum #postpartumdepression #babies #takebackpostpartum
Love love love fresh postpartum bellies! 😍 How can a postpartum body be anything but magnificent?! If you can find beauty in another woman's body then why not your own? We all share the same energy, beauty, and magic even if it's form uniquely varies a bit. -January Harshe _ Image of @thesimplefolk_ by @catfancote.capturingbirth via @australianbirthstories! #takebackpostpartum
"Comment with a 🎉 if you have any of the following: stretch marks, cellulite, a mama pooch, a papa pooch, just yer average pooch, a six pack, long legs, short legs, a big butt, a teensy butt, an in-between butt, muscles, fat anywhere on your body, dark-toned skin, light-toned skin, ANY TONE OF SKIN COLOR, a lot of facial hair, no facial hair, one arm – or two (or three!), birth marks of any kind, scars of any kind, freckles, eyelashes, a neck, etc, etc, etc. My point? 🍉 ALL OF THE ABOVE – AND MORE – PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS THAT UNIQUELY MAKE UP YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL, LOVABLE, & WORTHY OF RESPECT, ACCEPTANCE, AND (YOU GUESSED IT!) LOVE. 🍉 There is nothing you need to lose or change or limit EXCEPT the beliefs that keep you thinking you are ONLY of value when you are losing & changing & limiting. YOU WERE BORN INTO WORTHINESS, MY LOVES. You are awe-some for existing in the body you have – and guess what the coolest part is? YOU DON’T EVEN HAVE TO LOVE YOUR BODY RIGHT NOW TO ATTAIN THAT WORTHINESS. You can show up with as much body-hating baggage as I did after I birthed my daughter in 2015. All that is needed is the willingness – if even for a single moment in your day! – to believe in something DIFFERENT." 🎉 @thelindsaywolf #postpartumbody #takebackpostpartum
Feeling this. ❤️ “My body feels broken… everything hurts… I don’t feel like I’m bonding as easily this time around… today has gone to shit.” @austinbirthphotos _ These are excerpts from my raw postpartum session with this incredible woman, mother, human, photographer and friend @heathergallagher.photography _ #takebackpostpartum #postpartumwithoutfear #motherhoodunplugged #motherhood #birthbecomesher #birthwithoutfear #candidmotherhood #fourthtrimester #thesincerestoryteller #dearphotographer #postpartum #birthphotographer
"To all the women today who are mamas – you are stunning. Wear your stripes proudly. May our daughters only hear us speak positively about our bodies and how they’ve changed because we carried them. May they be raised in households where they are delighted in, celebrated, and cherished always and not based on their outward appearance. Speak life into their hearts." ❤️ @jenn.newm #postpartum #postpartumbody #takebackpostpartum
"This is a picture I most likely will not keep up for very long. This is me, at the peak of my postpartum depression. I asked Shiloh to take a picture of me, so I could remember how far I’d come, if I ever came out of it. I was lower than low, I wasn’t even myself. Looking back at this photo I remember perfectly the pain I felt, the dread in waking up everyday, the physical pain that engulfed me from thoughts in my brain. I had never known consuming, mind altering emotion such as this that flooded every fiber of my being, making its way through my veins like a plague. This is what postpartum depression looks like, or at least what it did for me. I didn’t want to leave this life, but it seemed like the only way that would rid me of the pain I was in. I didn’t ask for it, it wasn’t welcome. But there it was, and I kicked its fucking ass and beat it to the ground before I let it consume me, or much worse, take my life." @themanifestingmamma #thisisppd . . . . #ppd #postpartumdepression #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #overcomingppd #mentalhealthsupport #communityovercompetition #stopcensoringmotherhood #motherhoodunited #motherhoodrising #motherhood #takebackpostpartum
