There are a lot of photos and stories floating around surrounding pregnancy and postpartum in celebrities. Online, in line at the grocery store, on TV...it's endless.
For a large majority of women, this experience is simply not the reality of what birth and postpartum looks like. Please do not compare your journey to anyone else's, celebrity or otherwise.
Remember that your body, mind, and spirit have undergone a huge transition and now is the time to be gentle with yourself. Give yourself the same love and admiration you are giving the newborn in your arms.
