How Mom-of-twins Scarred By Pregnancy Learnt to Love Herself Again

Pregnancy is a beautiful thing but its aftermath and the changes it does to your body can leaving you feeling low. Which is why in a candid Instagram post, British mom, Emily Marson, is imploring moms to embrace their post-pregnancy figures.

After giving birth to her twin boys in December, Emily began documenting her parenting journey along with her husband on an account dedicated to their cute boys, Arthur and Finley.

Writing in a heartfelt post alongside a photograph of her scarred stomach next to her baby boys, Emily explained how she has finally learned to love her body following the birth of her children.

Describing her pregnancy journey, Emily explains that her sons were born prematurely, leading to several hospital visits due to dehydration and early contractions.

Ultimately, this led to her undergoing a caesarean birth, which typically leaves mothers with a visible scar on their stomach.

Addressing the physical changes she has noticed since giving birth, Emily urged mothers to see beyond the aesthetics and to look at their new bodies as a symbol for what they have achieved.

”Okay, this is quite a personal post but I am now 4 months postpartum and beginning to embrace what my body has become, I’ve housed two beautiful babies for 36 weeks and breastfed for 5 weeks.

My pregnancy wasn’t exactly an easy ride these boys wanted to come out early and I was hospitalised a few times because of dehydration and early contractions, our bodies go through a lot, a lot of change and your body is put through an enormous amount and I am so proud of myself that I carried such beautiful children and gave them food, warmth and most importantly all the love that I never thought I had.

With a scar that I will have for the rest of my life is a tiny sacrifice for a lifetime of beautiful memories with my family. Your stretch marks DO NOT define you, your scar DOES NOT define you, your flab DOES NOT define you.

You are incredible, you are a mother and you are the light of your babies eyes. I wanted to share this to show the reality of our bodies and that it’s okay not to be perfect because in their eyes you are exactly that. #identicaltwins#twins#csectionrecovery#babies#brave#scar#csectionstrong#stretchmarks#beautiful#perfect.”
