A mom's raw photo after a C-section shows how badass the female body is.
This is Mel Watts. Veteran mom.She documents life with her kids on Instagram and her blog, where she keeps it pretty real about what it can take to raise children in 2017.She also just recently added a new baby boy to the brood. 39.2 W E E K S See you soon little bebe! I think he knows I was up all night I didn't sleep a wink. Can't believe we're having a baby today!  A post shared by M E L W A T T S - MUMMA LIFE (@themodernmumma) on Jun 4, 2017 at 12:38pm PDT Just four days after the Caesarean birth of her son, she shared a photo on Instagram that captured the remarkable resilience of the female body.The raw photo shows her belly before and after the delivery.Recovering from a c-section is tough; it's a major surgery after all. And while the incision was fresh, and the pain likely was too, Watts wanted to take a minute to appreciate her body for everything it'd been through.Fair warning: This photo doesn't pull any punches.  Top photo 30 weeks pregnant Bottom photo 4 days post Caesarean section. Wow. Honestly it's no castle or bloody piece of art. Sure it's filled with stretch marks and dimples. But this body, this one the one I own gave me another life. Another small human to love and to hold. It held onto him for 9 months and sheltered him, protected him and prepared him for the day he was born. So many times I've doubted my body, so many times I've pinched and pulled at sections that I didn't like. In reality this body has done everything I'd ever want it to do. Sure it's not magazine or swimsuit worthy to some. But to me and my husband, it's the place that grew our babies. It's the place that everything we love most started. And that's all that counts right?! We feel as though we need to follow society's stigma on what we should look like when in fact we should just do what we feel works for us. No body has the same body And every body has their own body. Enjoy it. A post shared by M E L W A T T S - MUMMA LIFE (@themodernmumma) on Jun 9, 2017 at 3:
