This is what real women look like after pregnancy
A professional photographer set out to show that all women’s post-pregnancy bodies are worthy of admiration in their natural form, after a photo of her own post-baby body went viral.
“I hadn’t seen any celebrated post-birth bodies that were the ones that didn’t bounce back,” American photographer Jade Beall says. “I gained 80 lbs. and lost 30, so I was 50 lbs. overweight – heavier than I’d ever been. I realized that I had this different body that I could photograph to celebrate a different shape. I didn’t realize that people would like it so much and that it would be an emotional catalyst for a lot of women once I posted them.”
Jade Beall posts most of her photographs on her Facebook. All images are credited to Jade Beall.
