*Note from the blogger, Chasity Boatman: So often I receive messages from new mothers in particular about how they hate their postpartum body. When will the extra fat go away? What can they wear? Where can they turn? And my answer is always the same: your body did something magical, beautiful, and miraculous. Embrace the body of motherhood and take steps to love yourself. You’re deserving of love just the way you are. You are worthy. But modern ideas of body image are toxic, and the concept is difficult for many.
