Mother Shares The Realities Of Childbirth. GO MOMS!
Editor’s Note: You will see a mom in a diaper!
In just 12 hours, a North Carolina mother’s photo received more than 210,000 likes and 70,000 shares. Newly mother, Amanda Bacon, was applauded online for sharing her own photo of her in her own “giant mom diaper.”
I’m sharing this picture because it’s real. 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 humor. Nothing says welcome to motherhood like an adorable squishy baby, and a giant mom diaper.
Amanda received such a welcoming response, that she was touched and wrote this afterwards:
Pierce and I this morning upon seeing all the love on our Motherhood Uncensored post! Wow!!!! We’re both clearly overcome with joy from all the love, support and kind words. Well, at least one of us is. I think the other is just trying to take their morning poop. You guess which is which
Glad y’all can share in Ken (the hubs) and I’s humorous moment, and you can appreciate the hilariously raw beauty that is postpartum life. It really means a lot to us. I never expected such a warm and well received response.
