[FOTOS] ¡Vivan los cuerpos reales! Mujeres se toman Instagram para mostrar la realidad post-parto
Es un tema complejo que afecta a muchas mujeres que han sido madres: cómo queda su cuerpo luego de dar a luz. Y es que los falsos estereotipos de belleza que circulan en las redes sociales y la publicidad, muestran a mujeres de cuerpos esbeltos, con abdomen marcado, que se alejan de lo que realmente sucede tras dar a luz.
No obstante, una cuenta de Instagram ha dejado demostrado la verdad de los cuerpos femeninos luego del parto, derribando lo que se muestra en televisión o redes sociales. Por medio de la cuenta @takebackpostpartum, madres se atreven a mostrar sus bellas figuras tras traer a sus hijos al mundo.
"HUGE BOOBS, SQUISHY BELLY, FULL HEART. The female body is freaking amazing you guys! Watching it grow and shrink and stretch is nothing short of miraculous, and yet there is so much pressure for things to "go back to normal" after baby. NEWS FLASH: you don't "go back" to anything. Your body is forever changed, and that's a beautiful thing. _ This time last week I still had a 9+LB baby in my belly. My pregnancy and birth experiences have given me so much appreciation for a body that I HATED for most my life. Today I feel like a damn superhero ?????? PS- who else loves mesh panties? Seriously, they're awesome." ??? @britteanderson #birthwithoutfear #takebackpostpartum
"I've been wanting to share this for awhile now. Almost everyday, I receive messages from other Mums asking me how I look the way that I do. How I got my 'pre baby body' back. Here's the truth ladies - I DIDN'T. I have the excess skin. I don't have stomach definition the way I used to. My hips are a little wider. I don't want there to be any misconceptions. My body did not just 'bounce back'. Now having said that, I work very hard to maintain a healthy lifestyle and to FEEL good in my skin. I may not ever look the way I did before I had the twins. And you know what? I'm OK with that. _ I have arms. I have legs. I can see, hear and experience life. My body has done amazing things, why on earth would I punish it? _ Learn to appreciate what you have. It doesn't mean you have to stop working for what you want, just show a little self love along the way." ?@twinmamadiaries #takebackpostpartum
via @mamaclog Bad lighting Misshapen belly button. Love handles. Wrinkly tummy pooch. Wonky c-section scar. Torn thighs. All worth it to grow and birth my little boy. I refuse to be ashamed. It's so easy to pick the photo with the best lighting, but that's not real life. Do not feel disheartened if your postpartum body doesn't look the same as the mums you see on Instagram. Good lighting and filters hide SO much. I am very active and I eat very well, but some of these marks with stay with me forever no matter what I do. And that's ok. #AintNoShameInMyMummyTummyGame #TakeBackPostPartum
