What a legend!


A mum has shared a brilliant and totally brave photo of the reality of the post-partum body – and we tip our hats to her BIG time!


Posted on the Every Child is a Blessing Facebook page by mum ‘Amanda B’, the photo titled ‘Motherhood uncensored’ sees the new mum’s partner take a laughing selfie of the little family. But it’s with a difference – in the background of the photo Amanda is wearing an adult nappy.


And we admire her deeply for getting real. After giving birth, women often bleed for days or even weeks, so sometimes a regular sanitary towel just won’t cut it. Enter the adult nappy.


“I’m sharing this picture because it's real,” Amanda captioned the photo. “This is motherhood; it's raw, stunning, messy, and freaking hilarious all rolled into one. Having a baby is a beautiful experience, and the realities of postpartum life aren't spoken enough about. And definitely not photographed enough.



“Some people probably find this uncomfortable, but why? I seriously don't get it! It's probably because this part isn't talked about. We all should try and educate, empower and embrace every aspect of childbirth, including moments like this. And do it while having a sense of humour.


“Nothing says welcome to motherhood like an adorable squishy baby, and a giant mom diaper.”


Brilliant! Love this mum’s sense of humour and total lack of vanity, and we couldn’t agree more with her wise words.
