Pregnancy and labor are really hard on a woman's body. With the rise of celebrities living their lives in the public eye, we're seeing a lot of what pregnancy and post-baby bodies can be like with a team of designers, experts, trainers, great lighting, and more.
The average woman doesn't have all of those things at her disposal, though, so her recovery will likely be very different. Courageous women are taking to social media to show what things look like for the average woman. Hopefully, their shared images will help people to see reality and to not hold themselves and others to impossible standards.
Instagram Account TakeBackPostpartum is gathering and sharing some amazing stories and images.
