Őszinte fotósorozat mutatja be, hogyan változik a nők teste szülés után

Találjuk meg a szépséget a test átalakulásában!


A szülés kapcsán sok ember hajlamos csak a pozitív és szép dolgokat emlegetni: az édesanya kivirágzik, a házaspár boldog és elégedett, az újszülött csecsemő pedig bájos és mindig hintőpor illatú. Azonban a valóság ennél jóval árnyaltabb, és noha erről keveset beszélünk, sok nő élete egyik legnehezebb időszakán megy keresztül ilyenkor. A szülés utáni depresszió és a test eldeformálódása bizony rengeteg anyukának okoz álmatlan éjszakákat.

Sophie Mayenne londoni származású fotós éppen ezt a témát szerette volna feldogozni, mikor kismamákat állított kamerája elé. “Beautiful, isn’t she” címet viselő sorozatában kendőzetlenül mutatja meg, hogy néz ki egy anyuka teste szülés után, és arra kéri követőit, találják meg a szépséget a striákban, a sebes hasban, vagy akár a kinyúlt bőrben is. Hiszen ha tetszik, ha nem, mindez az élet természetes velejárója, és a testünkön minden nyomot hagy, ami valaha történt velünk. Ha ezzel a gondolattal nézzük végig Sophie képeit, a csúnya hibák helyett megláthatjuk az anyaság küzdelmes, ám gyönyörű oldalát.

New work for @mothercareuk with the beautiful @kesiaarcherxx and little Eli! #BodyProudMums Kesia, 17 weeks after giving birth: “I always knew my body would be different after giving birth, however, I didn’t expect my mind to take so long to get used to seeing myself. I was never “skinny” but I put on more weight than I thought I would. A lot of friends had babies close to me and they post online about their bodies, and I do feel upset sometimes that I haven’t bounced back in the same way they have. I know every woman is different and I am not as hard on myself anymore. I wanted to take part to show people that it is normal to look like this after having a baby. I want to show the baby is more important than the marks!”

Another beautiful Mum @eleanorjaylo Eleanor, 14 weeks after giving birth: “The inspiration behind being part of this project is to show those around me that stretch marks and weight gain don’t define us, that we should embrace our strength and beauty. I am a young mother with many influential people around me, and together we can see the beauty of motherhood. I have always loved my body no matter what, and my friends would look up to me for that. Pre-pregnancy, I had nice curves and my skin was smooth. During pregnancy my body changed dramatically, not just in weight – but also my breasts and skin, in the ways that aren’t considered to be beautiful. I’ve seen people on social media bounce back significantly and speedily to their pre-pregnancy weight, so of course I feel the pressure to do so too. I have found it difficult to see my body in the same way, but as the days go by, I am a few steps closer. I didn’t expect my body to change as much as it did, but I would most definitely do it all over again.” #BodyProudMums

#BodyProudMums Sophia, 39 weeks after giving birth: “Before giving birth I was very preoccupied with my figure I worked out a lot and I had very high expectations of myself. Throughout my pregnancy I was shocked at how much changed and it was hard to accept the changes. I had a healthy pregnancy, but it was hard. My belly was full term size at 6 months and it kept growing. I found it really hard to walk and I constantly had people stare in shock at my size. I even had strangers make comments on the size of my tummy. Since giving birth my body image has changed, and I am proud of my body for holding 2 babies. They were born at full term and no health issues. I don’t mind having tummy wrinkles, it’s a small price to pay for these beautiful little girls. To watch my babies grow and achieve their baby milestones inspires me to be healthy and happy and do my best for them – not what social standards tell me I should be.”

Tina, 27 weeks after giving birth: “I am not a fan of my new body. Before birth I was muscular and worked out a lot. Now I don’t have time to work out and everything feels saggier! I didn’t expect to feel suddenly so old and droopy! I know it will come back with time and dedication to exercise again, but right now all I want to do is cover up with baggy clothes. Every day I feel pressure to bounce back. Society, social media, people’s comments all make you feel that way. All over social media it shows these perfect bodies saying they’ve had children and now bounced back so quickly. I, myself remember being really surprised when Kate Middleton came out of the hospital holding Prince George. She had the baby bump, and I remember being surprised that your belly doesn’t just go down after giving birth. I also thought how stupid I was to have ever thought it would. I guess pre children you just have unrealistic expectations. I also put pressure on myself to try and get my body back, but as I slowly transition into motherhood I am realising that it’s actually not that important, and I just need to be OK in my own skin rather than worrying about what everyone else thinks.” @pac__hoorah #BodyProudMums
