Mom Explains Why She's Proud of Her Body After Giving Birth

1 Mom Who Had 3 Kids in 11 Months Got Super Real About Body Image on Instagram

You could say Eliza Curby, a mom from Australia, had a pretty busy year after giving birth to three children in 11 months. But Curby's hectic schedule didn't keep her from sharing an inspirational message on body image postbaby "just because" to her Instagram account.

She wrote:

Because I'm not embarrassed of the scars my body now carries. Because I'm proud of what my body has done for me. Because many women feel the need to hide it. Because famous women post "look at my body just three weeks postpartum" and portray unrealistic images of what it means to be a mother. Because I feel beautiful in my own skin — even if there's a lotttt of it! Because beauty takes many forms. Because I can. Because you should also be proud. This is me . . . because I love my body.

Safe to say this is a mindset every woman who's ever given birth should try her best to adopt.
