This Mom’s Powerful Message About Embracing Her Post-Pregnancy Body Is Honestly Refreshing

Society puts tremendous pressure on men and women to achieve the ‘perfect’ figure. For some, squeezing a 7 pound human out of your hoo-ha doesn’t even count as an exemption.

Here’s a mom who chose to steer clear of the Transformation Tuesday hashtag, and instead love her post-pregnancy body.

Meet Olivia White, a mother of two and mommy blogger from Sydney, Australia.

Olivia runs a blog called House Of White, where she shares her parenting adventures featuring her two kids, Annabelle and Teddy.

Last week, Olivia posted a photo on Facebook and Instagram revealing her post-pregnancy body, along with a few words.

Puffy face, droopy milk filled boobs, wider hips and belly full of stretch marks!! That's my post baby reality, no 'bouncing back' here! And you know what? I couldn't give a shit! Because I'm not the same person I was before I had babies, so why would would I want my body to reflect something and someone I no longer am? Those droopy boobs fed my babies and grew them up big and strong πŸ’ͺ🏻 Those hips and rippled belly was home to my little babes for 9 months πŸ™ŒπŸ» It might not be the 'transformation' body so many ogle or aspire to! And sure, some days I wish it didn't jiggle so much and was a bit 'firmer' but then I just remember the awesome shit it's done and cut myself some slack and go eat a cheeseburger, because we earned it πŸ‘πŸ» πŸ“Έ: @sleepinggrace

While there’s no shame in trying to get back to your pre-baby weight, post-pregnant figures should be celebrated more often.

You go, Olivia!
