A Nigerian mom took to her Facebook page to flaunt her postpartum body in a swimsuit as she encourages other mothers, too.
The mum of two identified as Blessing Akuakanwa shared photos of her stomach after childbirth. Her stomach was darkened and filled with stretch marks as a result of childbirth.
“To every woman whose body experienced changes after childbirth. To the woman whose body will experience changes in the future. I know we won’t all have to put it out here but we’re beautiful regardless. Whenever you don’t feel beautiful enough, I hope this picture gives you strength. Cheers to the sacrifices we make to bring life.”
