"Motherhood" - the most beautiful experience for any woman! New joy, new experiences, and a special opportunity (only a mother can do it) to give life and nurture somebody- that's so tender and beautiful! A mother's caress is so warm and peaceful; and absolutely nothing can match it's purity.
The experience of 'being mommy' is so beautiful, but the changes that come along-with motherhood may not be pleasant most of the times! Definitely new responsibilities, sleepless nights, baby blues, feeling of overburdened, no personal care, lack of motivation, low self-esteem and hate for the body. Sometimes the emotions go this way: "Wow! I am a mother now"; and sometimes like this: "Oh! no; see what pregnancy has done to my body!"
Learning to love your postpartum body is as important as, it is to taking care of your baby; because when we feel beautiful and confident as a woman- we can be happy as a mother and wife too!
Many women get back their original body after delivery; but there are still many, who finds it difficult to get back into shape! Also, many mothers take 'their' time to get back on shape; while for many; the stretch marks, hanging skin and the flabby tummy never disappears. These reasons are more than enough to not feel attractive and confident anymore. How many of us have been there, or are still there; who hates looking in the mirror, particularly after the birth of a baby? But accepting to love your body after baby, is the best way you can treat yourself-this mother's day!
Love yourself with this thought that; "you have given birth to a beautiful 'new life', and you are one lucky woman who is blessed with this task." Your body took long nine months to develop that 'little miracle'; so it definitely needs some time (may be longer than expected at times) to give you back your beauty and shape.
