Now more than ever, it’s important that we have body positivity on our social media — and in real life. For many of us, social media can either be a place of great inspiration or a triggering mess. That’s why it’s so important that one mother is getting real about her postpartum body — and all that it is capable of — on Instagram, and it absolutely something that we all need to take note of.
