In my opinion, being pregnant, giving birth, and raising a child is the most magical power of women.
In fact, our bodies as women are capable of creating life. That is to say, we have the power to bring another human to life.
Can we let that sink in for a minute? We create life.
Our bodies have the capacity to expand in such a way that we can create and develop another human life.
Yet as soon as women are done giving birth to this new human, patriarchy and diet culture expect women to shrink back their body and leave absolutely no trace of this magical act.
Diet culture has perfected a narrative that leaves women to feel shame for their postpartum bodies instead of being grateful for the goddess they are.
The non-diet approach to postpartum is the space where women’s bodies are celebrated for the magic they created without patriarchy and diet culture oppressing message.
