If there ever was a real come-to-Jesus moment, it might be seeing your naked, postpartum body for the first time. I know it was for me when I was staring at my fleshy tummy in the brutally unforgiving lights of the hospital bathroom. It's easy to get caught up in wanting our bodies to bounce back, given how, as new moms, we are inundated with images of seemingly perfect celebrities who practically sprint out of the labor and delivery ward in skintight spandex. That's why photographer Liliana Taboas of Divine Mothering wants women to see different images of new moms, and how they really look postpartum. But the photographs featured in her book, " I Will Always Be Your Mother ," are about more than showcasing women's bodies after baby as a way to suggest it's okay to look like a real person after birth. No, according to Liliana, it's about time we shifted our focus from how a woman's body looks postpartum, to what it just did! Mothers are an incredible symbol of love and nurturing. Women's bodies are so often reduced to their sexuality. I want to remind women that their bodies are so much more than that; they are strong, powerful nurturers and birthers. Mothers need to be proud of what their bodies have done, and it is to bring forth the next generation.
