Μητέρες δείχνουν περήφανα το σώμα τους [λίγο μετά τη γέννα]

24.05.2018

Η ωμή πραγματικότητα που δεν πρέπει κανείς να κρύβει και να ενοχοποιεί στο #TakeBackPostPartum.
 

Μετρά περισσότερες από 85.000 δημοσιεύσεις και όλες έχουν ένα κοινό στόχο, να απενοχοποιήσουν το γυναικείο σώμα λίγο μετά τη γέννα.

Διάσημες και άσημες γυναίκες φωτογραφίζονται όπως ακριβώς είναι, λίγο μετά τη γέννα, αφήνοντας να φανούν όλες οι ατέλειες, τα σημάδια και οι ραγάδες. Ο λογαριασμός «TakeBackPostPartum» περιλαμβάνει φωτογραφίες από μητέρες που φιλοδοξούν να βοηθήσουν άλλες μαμάδες να αποδεχθούν τον εαυτό τους και το σώμα τους, όπως είναι, επιδεικνύοντας με υπερηφάνεια τις δικές τους «ουλές από τη μάχη».   

Βασικός στόχος να διαδοθεί η ιδέα πως οι γυναίκες δεν είναι υποχρεωμένες να «συνέλθουν» αμέσως μετά τον τοκετό και πως δεν πρέπει για κανένα λόγο να ντρέπονται για το σώμα τους «Μια καισαρική τομή, δέρμα που περισσεύει, ραγάδες εγκυμοσύνης και μύες που έχουν καταρρεύσει. Αυτή είμαι εγώ. Το θαύμα της ζωής», γράφει στη φωτογραφία της μια από τις γυναίκες. Μια άλλη μητέρα δημοσίευσε μια φωτογραφία της να θηλάζει κλαίγοντας, αποκαλύπτοντας πως τραβήχτηκε ενώ η ίδια περνούσε επιλόχειο κατάθλιψη. «Ζήτησα να με τραβήξουν μια φωτογραφία για να θυμάμαι πόσο μακριά έχω φτάσει, αν ποτέ έβγαινα από όλο αυτό. Είχα πιάσει πιο πάτο κι από τον πάτο, δεν ήμουν καν ο εαυτός μου», γράφει στη λεζάντα της μια άλλη γυναίκα. 

Η ιδέα του πρότζεκτ ανήκει στην January Harshe από το Τέξας, που είναι μητέρα έξι παιδιών. Όπως λέει την εμπνεύστηκε επειδή εξοργίστηκε με τους διαφημιστές που χρησιμοποιούσαν φωτογραφίες με το hashtag #postpartum προκειμένου να προωθήσουν κρέμες για ραγάδες και ροφήματα απώλειας βάρους. Αυτό που επιχειρεί τώρα είναι να κατακλυστεί το συγκεκριμένο hashtag από αληθινές φωτογραφίες, που εμπνέουν θετικότητα και αποδοχή. 

 

"I may be a little softer but ultimately I am stronger and these marks just remind me of where I once tightly held and grew Emilia Ren. This body, ME, I may not be the same but if she can find so much comfort and safety in this body, I will as well." @whenalexsmiles  #3weekspostpartum #takebackpostpartum

"When you’re a bigger woman, somehow it makes certain people think you don’t deserve to say you have a “real” postpartum body. . THIS. IS. FALSE. . You grew a human. You birthed a human, whether they came out of your lady bits or through surgery. You have a postpartum body. Period. End of story. It doesn’t matter what that body looks like. There is no definition of what a postpartum body is supposed to look like, contrary to what some people will try and force you to believe. You will see women who have no marks, or have 50. You will see women whose stomachs went right back to being smooth and flat, or hang down with loose skin. You will see women who have lots of fat on their bellies, or who have none. You will see women who were in great shape and toned when they got pregnant and women who were considered “plus size” when they got pregnant. Some women stayed in shape through pregnancy while others gained weight. But what do all of these women have in common after birthing these adorable humans? . They. Have. A. Postpartum. Body. . They have a story. Their story matters and it counts. They can post the photo if they want to. And not every photo will look the same. I am SO DONE with hearing that certain women aren’t allowed to consider their body a “real” postpartum body and post their love for it. . So here it is. Another lovely photo of my postpartum body." @meg.boggs #takebackpostpartum

“When I was pregnant with Paisley, there was always one thing that I would obsess about that scared me more than giving birth for the first time, #postpartum #depression. I would lay awake at night in fear of what emotions I would have after having her. Would I love her? Would I hate her? Would I feel resentment for what my body just went through? These are all very real thoughts that I had and I couldn’t get them out of my head. After dealing with depression and #anxiety my entire life, I was certain that going through it postpartum was inevitable. Then I had her and I felt....fine. In fact, I felt better than I had in my entire life. I felt happy and strong and powerful like I had just done something no other human ever could. Maybe it was just the #oxytocin talking but it was a feeling like I was floating on a cloud. Then days and weeks and months went by and the exhaustion finally set in. Around 6 months postpartum I started feeling defeated. Like if I didn’t get some kind of break soon then I would end up breaking myself. I remember sitting in my truck, tears streaming down my face because Paisley did a number of things that day that made me question whether or not I was a good mom. I felt this way for a couple weeks and then I finally was able to pull myself out of it. I’m not a doctor so I’m not sure if it was #PPD or not, but what I do know is that whatever you’re going through be it exhaustion, PPD, #PPA or even just feeling tired—you are GOING to get through this. Ask someone for help. Tell them you need their support. Take some time to practice self love and self care. You can’t pour from an empty glass. I know it’s hard, but you aren’t alone and you should never feel like you aren’t worthy enough to get the help you need. You are beyond worthy. You are the warrior goddess Mama that birthed that beautiful baby and you deserve every ounce of support and love that you can get. Don’t give up.”  @chloeandpaisley #motherhood #motherhoodrising #motherhoodsimplified #momlife #motherhoodlife #motherhoodthroughinstagram #honestlymothering #selflove #selfcare #takebackpostpartum

“Mummy tummy (yes women grow body hair too). Someone recently said to me that I’d be able to get rid of my tummy pouch, I just wasn’t working hard enough, if I exercised more, and if I was stricter with what I ate I’d have a flat stomach again. Although it didn’t upset or affect the way I feel about my body, I believe it needs to be addressed nonetheless. _ My “tummy pooch” is a byproduct of three things- loose skin, an ab separation, and adhesions causing my scar to be pulled inwards (creating a dip.) It has nothing to do with my overall weight. LOTS of mothers wear marks from pregnancy and child birth and i’s a MISCONCEPTION that you can get rid of these marks through diet or exercise. You cannot starve your way to taut skin. Nor can you exercise away indented scars. Yes, you can work towards getting your stomach as flat as possible if that’s what you want, but these unrealistic expectations can be harmful. _ It’s ok to bare the marks of your pregnancy and birth proudly. The same as it’s ok to feel a little bit upset and like a stranger in your new body. It’s human. Learning to accept and love yourself as you are is a process- it’s ok if you’re not quite there yet. It’s also ok to work towards personal body goals, working out and eating healthily to sculpt your body in a particular way doesn’t mean that you have to hate the body you’re in now. On the contrary. It’s all about doing what makes you feel happy and accomplished. _ What is NEVER ok is someone telling you that you should work harder to attain an unachievable body image- so that you might fit THEIR expectations of what the female body should look like. That shit needs to be shut down immediately. If someone can’t accept your postpartum body or encourages you to change any aspect of the way you look because they don’t feel comfortable with it- that is THEIR problem, THEIR issue that needs to be worked on. It ultimately stems from their own insecurities. _ Never allow someone to make you feel bad about your body and never apologise for your body. Your body created life! If that’s not something to be proud of, to be in absolute awe of, then I don’t know what is!” @mamaclog #takebackpostpartum

"This is a picture I most likely will not keep up for very long. This is me, at the peak of my postpartum depression. I asked Shiloh to take a picture of me, so I could remember how far I’d come, if I ever came out of it. I was lower than low, I wasn’t even myself. Looking back at this photo I remember perfectly the pain I felt, the dread in waking up everyday, the physical pain that engulfed me from thoughts in my brain. I had never known consuming, mind altering emotion such as this that flooded every fiber of my being, making its way through my veins like a plague. This is what postpartum depression looks like, or at least what it did for me. I didn’t want to leave this life, but it seemed like the only way that would rid me of the pain I was in. I didn’t ask for it, it wasn’t welcome. But there it was, and I kicked its fucking ass and beat it to the ground before I let it consume me, or much worse, take my life." @themanifestingmamma #thisisppd . . . . #ppd #postpartumdepression #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #overcomingppd #mentalhealthsupport #communityovercompetition #stopcensoringmotherhood #motherhoodunited #motherhoodrising #motherhood #takebackpostpartum
