A maternidade costuma ser maravilhosa, e não é à toa que o Instagram reúne tantas fotografias dedicadas a mostrar momentos felizes de mães e seus bebês.

Mas tem um perfil que faz isso de uma forma diferente (e linda): mostrando a beleza natural dos corpos femininos pouco tempo após o parto.

A conta @takebackpostpartum foi criada por January Harshe em 2015, quando ela percebeu que muitas fotografias com a hashtag #postpartum recebiam mensagens de páginas anunciando produtos e fórmulas para “entrar em forma”, indo de encontro ao ideal de amor próprio que ela acredita ser necessário durante toda a vida – incluindo o pós-parto, claro.

Para ir de encontro a esse movimento, ela criou a #takebackpostpartum (algo como “pegando o pós-parto de volta”) para divulgar imagens reais e naturais mostrando que esse momento especial não deveria nunca estar sujeito a críticas relacionadas a padrões estéticos.

Aí vão alguns momentos da linda realidade:

"I've been wanting to share this for awhile now. Almost everyday, I receive messages from other Mums asking me how I look the way that I do. How I got my 'pre baby body' back. Here's the truth ladies – I DIDN'T. I have the excess skin. I don't have stomach definition the way I used to. My hips are a little wider. I don't want there to be any misconceptions. My body did not just 'bounce back'. Now having said that, I work very hard to maintain a healthy lifestyle and to FEEL good in my skin. I may not ever look the way I did before I had the twins. And you know what? I'm OK with that. _ I have arms. I have legs. I can see, hear and experience life. My body has done amazing things, why on earth would I punish it? _ Learn to appreciate what you have. It doesn't mean you have to stop working for what you want, just show a little self love along the way." ?@twinmamadiaries #takebackpostpartum

"No more bump shots so me and Margot have had a little selfie instead. One week postpartum and I can honestly say it's been a lot harder than I ever thought. After having an emergency c-section and delivering Nellie 3 months early I though our full term, planned section would be a breeze. Well in no way have I "bounced back" like I did with Nellie. Will my belly button always look like a cats bum hole? ? It's been a lot easier emotionally but I still cry at least once a day over absolutely nothing and man my poor boobies are running like taps, everything is soaked in breast milk, Margot loves a comfort feed so I've spent the last 7 days with her hanging of my nipple whilst contending with Nellie and now this silly blood pressure problem. How an earth do you mummas with more than two do it? Not that I would have it any other way, I'm still utterly and blissfully in baby paradise. There really is nothing I'd rather be doing than mothering my two girls." @sageandnellie . . . #postpartum #1weekold #1weekpostpartum #4thtrimester #newborn #babygirl #toddlermum #mumoftwo #takebackpostpartum

"Why be ashamed? A life grew inside of you that gives humanity hope of change. You felt things that I as a man will never understand. Even when you first held your baby girl or boy it was nothing similar to when they lay in their father's hands. Your body changed and so did you. It became a look into the past of what you went through. You grew mentally and emotionally and your spirit was taken to places you didn't think it would ever go. Your breasts may sit differently. Your ass may not be as thick as it once was. But why should it be when you gave so much of yourself to help all of us. A sacrifice of sorts if you choose to see it that way. But to me your body now is exactly how it's supposed to be. So don't be ashamed. Don't hide your changes from the world that you and your sisters helped create. Be proud of your story. Be proud of your lines. Be proud of who you've chosen to be." @expressionsuntold___ _ Muse: @sereneradianceyoga Photo by @expressionsuntold___ #birthwithoutfear #dontforgetdads #takebackpostpartum

More and more women are embracing motherhood in all ways and that's a beautiful thing. ❤️ Repost @the.prairiehippie.
Not ashamed. I have moles, freckles, birthmarks, surgery scars, and now stretchmarks. Most of the "#blemishes" we dislike about ourselves, I have them. Sometimes it's hard to disconnect from what people imbed in your mind, those social standards that define beauty as one type of woman. It's hard to reconnect with oneself and relearn what it's like to truly love yourself, blemishes and the never-ending changes. Loving the dull "dirty dishwater" blonde hair, the natural way my hair tends to frizz and never lay the same, not taking to heart that the only way others realize I am Asian is by my flat profile but instead loving my "flat face", my 38E breasts that may not look the way they did a year ago but are providing nourishment to a four month old chunk (and still look damn good regardless), the way my belly bloats easy and is softer than it was but shows evidence that I finally brought forth life when I'd lost hope in ever being a mom, my now chicken legs after losing a lot of muscle mass (40 lbs lost) after severe nausea & vomiting for 7 months of my pregnancy and continuing to lose because breastfeeding, and my chunky feet and webbed toes that help me get from point A to point B and may not always fit in those narrow shoes, but appreciate the feel of grass, warm paved roads, squishing sand between toes, and will soon have me chasing a little girl, sooner than I'm prepared for. Life hands us this beautiful body, with talent, natural abilities, difference, and these bodies meant to change…yet we find ways to condemn them, to compare them, to alter them. Stop. Just stop. Stop and love oneself. Respect the beauty of change and difference. I'm learning to love THIS. All of this. And respecting that my change isn't a death sentence. #TakeBackPostpartum #postpartum #lovethyself #stretchmarks #bellyfat #babychunk #birthmarks #freckles #scars #changeisgood #lifeisgood #WeArentMeantToLookTheSame #respectothers #dontjudge #iamwoman #hearmeroar #motherhoodrising #changewithoutfear #lovethyselfwithoutfear
