Her post reads:

”RESPECT MOTHERHOOD, RESPECT WOMEN. The scars and stretch marks on your wife’s stomach, symbolizes the pain that comes with motherhood, it symbolizes love and life. Remember how beautiful she was when she was your newly wedded wife, she is still the same woman you fell in love with!

The difference now is, she has given you children, she has given you life, she has blessed you with a family. Don’t ignore your woman.

Husband? Don’t make her go through anymore pains, please don’t hit her, don’t nag, don’t insult her. Each time I see my moms tummy, I smile and say to myself. That was my duplex for 9months.”
