Mom Bod Awareness Project
How often do you see a representation of your body as a mom in the media?
We have a problem in the media that only marginalized bodies - white woman, thin bodied, bounce back, no stretch marks - is represented in mainstream media. As a new mom I had a war on my body after birth during my 4th trimester/post-partum stage. I thought it let me down! I didn’t “bounce back”, I had stretch marks, I was dealing with complications, of a c-section roll/scar I had never seen depicted in media.
Just because my body isn’t represented in mainstream media doesn’t mean my body failed me, neither has yours. It’s the media’s story of motherhood and post partum that has!
On Sept 8th @10am at Mallard Point we are going to challenge the media’s representation of mom bod. All bodies, sizes, shapes (let me be clear thin to large bodies and everything in between are welcome!), cultures, and lifestyles are welcomed!
All mothers welcome - mothers of loss, adoption, surrogacy all welcome!
