A mom from the U.K. who gave birth to twins in December is making headlines for her inspirational, body positive Instagram post. After welcoming her L.O.s, Emily Marson started documenting her life with husband Thomas and their two infant sons Arthur and Finley called @Marson.Twins. And on March 2, she shared a beautiful photo of her postpartum stomach next to her baby boys.  Alongside the shot, Marson wrote, "Okay, this is quite a personal post but I am now four months postpartum and beginning to embrace what my body has become." She explained that her sons were born prematurely and that she had to visit the hospital on several occasions due to dehydration and early contractions. Ultimately, she ended up delivering the boys via C-section. “Our bodies go through a lot,” she wrote. “A lot of change and your body is put through an enormous amount and I am so proud of myself that I carried such beautiful children and gave them food, warmth and most importantly all the love that I never thought I had. With a scar that I will have for the rest of my life is a tiny sacrifice for a lifetime of beautiful memories with my family.” She then pivoted to addressing other mothers who might be struggling with poor body image in the wake of giving birth. "Your stretch marks DO NOT define you, your scar DOES NOT define you, your flab DOES NOT define you," Marson shared. "You are incredible, you are a mother and you are the light of your babies eyes. I wanted to share this to show the reality of our bodies and that it’s okay not to be perfect because in their eyes you are exactly that." Okay, this is quite a personal post but I am now 4 months postpartum and beginning to embrace what my body has become, I’ve housed two beautiful babies for 36 weeks and breastfed for 5 weeks. My pregnancy wasn’t exactly an easy ride these boys wanted to come out early and I was hospitalised a few times because of dehydration and early contractions, our bodies go through a lot, a lot of change and your body is put through an enormous amount and I am so proud of myself that I carried such beautiful children and gave them food, warmth and most importantly all the love that I never thought I had. With a scar that I will have for the rest of my life is a tiny sacrifice for a lifetime of beautiful memories with my family. Your stretch marks DO NOT define you, your scar DOES NOT define you, your flab DOES NOT define you. You are incredible, you are a mother and you are the light of your babies eyes. I wanted to share this to show the reality of our bodies and that it’s okay not to be perfect because in their eyes you are exactly that. #identicaltwins #twins #csectionrecovery #babies #brave #scar #csectionstrong #stretchmarks #beautiful #perfect A post shared by ...
