After having a baby (or two!), your body will be different. And for a lot of women, they may well find their body is different forever. Many women will never go back to their pre-baby body, never mind ‘snapping back’ to it straight afterwards, as there seems to be so much pressure to do! But it can be quite hard to accept this. Like lots of others, I find myself having a big ‘mum tum’ now! So how do you go about accepting your mum tum?
When the twigs were smaller, I once had a lady say to me that the reason they got chicken pox was because I didn’t breastfeed them. Struggling to breastfeed my twins when they were first born had been a deeply painful and upsetting experience for me. So I’ll be honest, what she said really hurt.
I’ve seen this issue crop up a fair bit on social media recently so I thought I’d address it. Is moaning about motherhood helpful sometimes? Or is it just unnecessary negativity?
