Mamma blogger lancia #this_is_postpartum per celebrare il corpo delle donne

Una mamma blogger ha deciso di celebrare la bellezza femminile dopo il parto per aiutare le donne ad accettarsi.

Il corpo di una mamma è in continua trasformazione: prima si adatta ad accogliere il bambino, poi lo aiuta a venire il mondo. Subito dopo si trasforma nuovamente per fornirgli il nutrimento. Certo, da un punto di vista estetico questi cambiamenti sono affascinanti ma non tutte le donne sono in grado di accettarli. Per aiutare le mamme, di oggi ma anche di domani, è nato l’ hashtag #this_is_postpartum, questo è il post partum.

Here I am, nearly nine months later. The twins have officially been in my arms a whole three days longer then I was able to carry them in my belly. My stomach is still flowered with stretch marks and extra skin. Just perfect for curious little hands to tug and pull. Some days I struggle to look in the mirror and show my body the appreciation and love it deserves. Those thoughts are almost immediately followed up with feelings of guilt for ever shaming this body which has done so much. I was able to carry twins for 38 weeks despite friends, family and even doctors telling me I would be lucky to make it past 32-34 weeks with my frame. This body may look weak and exhausted, but in reality it’s so strong and capable. All this to say, that if you ever have feelings of shame because your body just isn’t “bouncing back,” I see you. I’ve been you. You are so beautiful!

A rilanciare questo hashtag è stata la mamma blogger Meg Boggs. Lo ha fatto partendo dalle frasi le che le sono state dette guardano il suo corpo ritornato pesante dopo la maternità. Quali? Non è stata la gravidanza, devi fare esercizio, non hai una vita sana…

#this_is_postpartum⁣ ⁣ “You’re promoting an unhealthy lifestyle and morbid obesity.”⁣ ⁣ “Pregnancy didn’t do that to you.”⁣ ⁣ “You might want to try diet and exercise.”⁣ ⁣ “It’s about being healthy for your child, you’ll die soon living so unhealthy!”⁣ ⁣ UNHEALTHY.⁣ ⁣ It’s the word that is constantly thrown at me the minute even a sliver of my skin shows.⁣ And the reason I felt so ashamed of my body, especially after I gave birth and my weight returned after years of torturing myself to get it off.⁣ Why I felt the need to avoid mirrors and photos.⁣ Why I felt undeserving and unworthy to say this is postpartum for me.⁣ The fear of these words stopped me from living.⁣ ⁣ These notifications still buzz on my phone and the whispers still fill messages all regarding my size and my weight.⁣ ⁣ All pointing at a photo. At a mother. At a quick glance at one life that is *trying* to be her best and coming up short based on the twisted societal views of beauty and health and the “typical” version of postpartum.⁣ ⁣ But a body like mine IS a postpartum body.⁣ And I deserve to celebrate it.⁣ And I will continue to do so.⁣ This needs no explanation.⁣ This postpartum body is the strongest now that it has EVER been.⁣ This postpartum body shows up multiple times a week to lift heavy weights, has competed, and will compete again next month. (And I’m proud to admit that my total volume per workout is around 11,000 pounds, but whose counting, right?)⁣ ⁣ So I’ll try and say this as clear as possible.⁣ ⁣ All. Postpartum. Bodies. Deserve. To. Be. Celebrated. No. Matter. How. They. Look.⁣ ⁣ And not harassed or ridiculed for being proud of all that they are and all that they have done.⁣ ⁣ Postpartum looks different on every mama. Which makes it beautiful and wonderful and magical and all-the-exciting-happy-powerful-words-combined-into-one-because-MOM-BODS-ARE-THE-BOMB-DOT-COM!⁣ ⁣ Whew.⁣ *wipes sweat*⁣ ⁣ So, today, let’s celebrate you.⁣ And me.⁣ And her.⁣ And ALL of us.⁣ Let’s celebrate our similarities, our differences, & all the little things in between that make each of us so incredibly unique.⁣ ⁣ Because this is postpartum, and so is @thegarciadiaries journey. 💗

“Queste frasi sono il motivo per cui mi sono vergognata del mio corpo, specialmente dopo la gravidanza quando il mio peso è tornato a salire, dopo che per anni mi ero torturata per farlo scendere. Soffrivo nel dire che questo era il post partum per me”.

Ha raccontato su Instagram. Oggi però si sta accettando:

“Un corpo come il mio è un corpo dopo il parto. Va celebrato e continuerò a farlo. Senza dover dare spiegazioni. Il mio corpo è più forte di quanto non sia mai stato. Sollevo pesi. Per essere chiara: “Tutti i corpi dopo la gravidanza devono essere celebrati, in qualunque modo appaiano”.
