This Mom’s Honest Photo Will Shatter Your Post-Pregnancy Body Illusions

Any woman pregnant with her first child has so many expectations about how her entire pregnancy and labor will go, based mostly on what they’ve seen other women experience. Which makes it more difficult when things happen that aren’t expected, like an emergency c-section or postpartum depression.

New moms are inundated with images of perfectly happy and slim and trim new moms in the media, that it’s sometimes hard to realize that isn’t reality for everyone.

Ruth Lee expected her pregnancy, delivery and postpartum experience to be like those of the women she would see online and in social media, only it was the opposite. The new mom is sharing a very real and very raw photo on social media to let other women know that it’s OK when things don’t go as planned.
