A letter to my daughter

This is my body

Image from linked from Role Reboot article

“My body is strong. Amazing. It has brought life into this world. It has housed you and your brother, kept you safe and warm and healthy even before I knew you existed. These scars and marks on my stomach tell a story. A story of love. If that is not beauty, I do not know what is.”

Gemma Hartley’s beautiful letter to her daughter on her post-pregnancy body is well worth a read, especially after all of the hoo-haa about Kate Middleton’s Post Baby Body a day after giving birth!
