“This Isn’t the Body I Fell in Love With”: Husband’s Response to Wife’s Postpartum Body Will Bring You to Tears

From the countless magazine covers plastered with waif models to web ads oozing with the next revolutionary weight-loss hack, it’s hard to get away from the cultural narrative that screams “skinny is BETTER” especially when you are dealing with a postpartum body.

Reportedly, “a total of 75 percent of all American women endorse some unhealthy thoughts, feelings or behaviors related to food or their bodies”…and those are just the ones who admitted to it in a survey.

If we’re being honest with ourselves, we’ve ALL probably had those thoughts at some point in our lives.

In this era of Photoshopped thighs and girls contracting every-eating-disorder-under-the-sun, it’s become quite the trend to champion body-positive thoughts and self-acceptance through social media.

You’ve all seen the memes.

“I’m so Flaw-some”…

Particularly after having children, it’s not uncommon for a woman’s body confidence to plummet to an all-time low because of your postpartum body.

Your tight abs are replaced with post-baby flab and your once supple skin now bears the marks of tiger-striped stretch marks.

How’s that for feeling attractive?… Particularly when it comes to pleasing the man who fell in love with the once-upon-a-Barbie-bod version of you.

Well for Mum on the Run, Laura Mazza, that’s something she’s finally starting to be at peace with after warring for years over her fading looks. But what’s most beautiful is her husband’s response to her insecurities about “the body he didn’t fall in love with.”

In a viral Facebook post, Laura bares her heart about the wonderful man who looks past her postpartum body full of stretch marks and straight into the soul of the mother who bore his babies:

“This isn’t the body you fell in love with.”
