New Mom Shares Her Postpartum Photo to Show the Reality of Childbirth

A new mom just became a viral sensation after she shared photos of her ‘post baby body’ on social media.

In a new Facebook post, blogger The Unmumsy Mum shared a candid photo of what most mothers would prefer not to talk about or show the world.

Dressed in an adult nappy and nothing else, with her tummy still bulging, she posed for the photo and it has received overwhelmingly positive reactions from other mums who praised her for being real and showing things as they really are.

“After initially thinking, I can’t share that! I realised it’s less flesh than it would be if I shared my ‘bikini body’ and represents the postpartum reality so well.

I was absolutely euphoric at this point, despite walking like John Wayne and wearing an adult nappy. #postpartumreality, #imavailableformodelling #adultnappiesforthewin.”

Another commented:

“I wish I’d seen something realistic like this before I gave birth so it wouldn’t have come as such a shock!”

Then a commenter who worked in a maternity for 8 years wrote:

“I love this!!! I worked on maternity for eight years and this is exactly what a post-baby body looks like!! Too many women think that everything snaps back in like the celebrities! Well done for sharing!”
