This Is a Woman: About having a mom body

I just found this website and I'm in love with it!! Just wanted to share in case you are interested. This is from the homepage...


"On July 5, 2006 I started The Shape of a Mother.com. News of the site spread like wildfire online and within a month of it's conception, it was known internationally and it was being featured in various media outlets across the globe. This was big. Such a response indicated that this was something desperately needed by women in our society. That we'd been imprisoned in our shame for too long and that seeing real images of other women was our key to freedom. To know not only that our bodies fall somewhere on the wide spectrum of Normal, but that maybe, just maybe Normal is Beauty, was an empowering concept.

I've long since wanted to create a sister site to SOAM for all women. A site that focuses on all the issues we have to face, whether or not we bear children. A site that gives us the opportunity not only to work on everyday body- and self-love, but also to discuss heavier issues like mastectomies and how it effects body-love. And, of course, always showing the world what real bodies, in all their diversity, look like.

As I say on SOAM's homepage: It is my dream, then, to create this website where women of all ages, shapes, sizes and nationalities can share images of their bodies so it will no longer be secret. So we can finally see what women really look like sans airbrushes and plastic surgery. I think it would be nothing short of amazing if a few of our hearts are healed, or if we begin to cherish our bodies. What if the next generation grows up knowing how normal our bodies are? How truly awesome would that be?

Join us now, click to enter. Note, however, that there is nudity contained within and this website is not considered safe for work. Peace."
