Tips to love your postpartum body

2/18/182:26 PM


A woman really goes through a lot during and after pregnancy. The physical and mental healing process takes awhile and honestly I don’t think you ever truly feel like yourself again. After having my second baby, I literally felt like I was leasing a new body everything had changed and I just felt like I probably would never be myself again. Looking at myself naked has been a major struggle and honestly there are still lots I know I need to work on to feel like I am back in the body I initially knew but, at the end of the day this is the new body I have and I can either hate on it or learn to love it and I choose to love it and own it. Here are a few ways I have learnt to bring my sexy back



  • Make an effort, look I get it everything might not look good on anymore and honestly yoga pants and leggings are just way more comfortable but, if you let yourself fall into the hole of not trying to look a little good you will feel that way. And even on the day I do the yoga pants and T-shirt look, I make an effort of doing my make up and just little ways to pick myself up for the day.
  • Do things that make you feel good, whether that be working out or just getting out of the house and meeting up with friends but working on your mental state does a lot for your sexuality and how we feel towards ourselves. Feeling and looking sexy goes beyond just the physical stuff, a huge part of it is your mentality and thoughts. Once you think you the hottest ish out there, ain’t no body changing that.
  • Remember social media should be a tool used for good, not to damage. After I had my second baby I would spend so much time comparing myself with other ladies that had babies around the same time as me, and then I would get sad that they were looking so good and I still looked and felt not up to par. Well once the new year rolled in, I was like listen I can’t come and kill my self and quickly un-followed anyone making me feel less than. 
Feeling sexy and owning your body is all up to you and you get to control that. The way I see it is if you don’t feel good about something fix it in which ever way you see fit, and as women we really need to learn to stop letting society dictate what is ok and not. I am the one living my life and seeing what fits for me and doesn’t. How are you mama’s out there learning to love your post baby bod?

  1. I love the title of your post! I've thought about this same topic. I am pregnant with baby #3 and know it will be a process to get back to where I feel comfortable with my post-baby body, but I think you've touched on some really simple and helpful tips.

  2. This is so true. Right after baby I did not put forth any effort in my appearance because I was recovering. But after a few weeks I really felt like a slob. Once I started actually getting dress, even if it was just leggings, and putting on some mascara I felt so much better.

  3. Yes! I finally realized I was doing myself no favors with my sloppy clothes and no makeup. I started putting on make up and just basic jeans every day and I felt so much better about my new mom look!
