Pregnancy & Postpartum Weight Gain: The Lies We’re Told

Orange County Fine Art Natural Light Pregnancy Photographer | Tiffany Chi Photography


Weight gain is often the obvious collateral we think about when we think of pregnancy.
Everyone from your mother in law to internet memes will remind you of it.

I expected it for myself to a certain extent …
in the way that you expect your body to eventually age,
or your spouse’s spike in libido when you’re not in the mood:
you know it’s going to happen,
but exactly how is outside of your immediate control.

It’s hard to feel out of control, especially when it comes to our own bodies.
Our bodies are “supposed” to obey our whims, and do what we want them to.
Except that when we’re pregnant, we can sometimes feel like a stranger in our own bodies.
Feeling this powerlessness to the often drastic physical changes happening during pregnancy can be so traumatizing, even frightening.

Unfortunately, in the society that we live in,
this feeling of disempowerment is often compounded by shame, comparison, unrealistic expectations —
even in the absolute beauty and wonder of childbearing,
women’s bodies are critiqued, appraised, and judged.

Everything from admonitions and unsolicited advice about how much you should or shouldn’t eat to comments from friends, family, or total strangers about the size, shape, height, length of your growing belly.

Please, stop doing this.

It’s exhausting, and it’s painful …
because I promise you, every woman to some degree, has struggled with loving and accepting their bodies.
Pregnancy and Postpartum weight gain can be extremely triggering for this reason.

Mama, if you’re feeling ashamed, sad, or insecure about the way that your body has changed, please know that you’re not alone in feeling this way. Please know that you’re beautiful, and don’t let others take away the utter joy and marvel that comes with this process of creating life.
