Mum-of-four Shares Photo Of Flawed Post-childbirth Tummy To Encourage Others To Embrace Theirs

A mum and musician from South Carolina fed up with people telling her she has a ‘perfect’ body after having four children has taken to social media to prove otherwise.

Kimberly Henderson posted a selfie to her Facebook page to show her fans what her post-baby body is really like, along with a brilliant post explaining why she loves it – even though she struggled to accept it at first.

Kimberly writes: “Everyone always compliments me on how I have such a ‘perfect’ body after four kids. I decided to upload this pic and leave my belly ‘unedited’, ‘unphotoshopped’, because I used to struggle with accepting my body after kids. I used to have a six-pack before my babies… and now, even though I work out, I know it’s not going to make my loose skin tight. Or my stretch marks disappear ever. And I’m OK with that, because every day I get to wake up to four beautiful smiling faces and I’m reminded that they are worth this flabby belly and they are worth these stretch marks. I still wear a bikini because being a mother makes me feel beautiful. Not having a flat tummy. It took a long time to get there… because I struggled so much with my body. I struggled so much because I was young and all these girls my age had perfect bodies and I was in my one-piece bathing suit trying to hide all my flaws. And I’m not trying to say I have it worse than anyone else or bad or anything like that. Just reminding you guys… that your body is beautiful… BECAUSE we ARE moms and we ARE superheroes and we freakin’ ROCK. And in my opinion that is sexier than any six-pack!”

Other mums, inspired by Kimberly, have since been posting selfies of their post-childbirth tummies in solidarity.
