When a celebrity announces that their baby is already born, publications where they are changed, combed and make-up are common, with their babies in their arms, who appear serenely asleep like little angels. That's why when a celebrity shows a more realistic picture of motherhood, he usually has many positive reactions.
Now, it is the model Chrissy Teigen who gives us a fun and real image of the postpartum, with the motive of the birth of her second son, who went ahead a few weeks.
This is not the first time that the model shares an image of motherhood with which many mothers really identify . Some time ago, Chrissy shared that she suffered from postpartum depression, and even her husband John Legend spoke of the important role of the couple when a mother is fighting against this invisible disease.
But now, after the arrival of her second baby, whom they called Miles Theodore, two classic names that also shine in an era where celebrities opt for unique or unusual names, the model has shared some of the not so precious moments that are live in the postpartum
Hello, world This is Miles Theodore Stephens - We are drowning in his little peeps and nuzzles. Our household feels overwhelmed with love. Thank you for all your well wishes
The first was through his Twitter account, where he shared a "small" detail about the difference between his first and second birth:
I can confirm postpartum life is 90% better when you do not rip to your butthole. Baby boy: 1 point. Luna: 0- christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) May 20, 2018
" I can confirm that postpartum life is 90% better when you do not tear your ass." Baby boy: 1 point, Moon: 0 ", shared the model and immediately filled with responses from other mothers sharing their birth stories where they experienced same as her.
The next day, Chrissy now shared an image of her postpartum in her Instagram account, this time more for the comic side and without retouching, as we saw her at home, with her baby in her arms and wearing something that most of the mothers we know:
If you havent seen @aliwongs new Netflix special, you are bad at picking Netflix specials #asianpearunderwear
Yes, those awful, wonderfully comfortable net panties or disposable panties, which are one of the few things you can wear during the postpartum period, as your body recovers from the enormous transformation it has just gone through. It is not the first time we see them, since some time ago a mother shared a photograph that her husband took and where she was seen with a giant diaper napkin.
A more "real" postpartum
Some people believe that sharing this type of images is not necessary and can even be annoying to the eye, but it is proven that the retouched or "perfect" images of pregnancies and deliveries do not help much, because in reality, they affect the confidence of mothers .
And is that the postpartum stage, is one of the most important and delicate of a woman, not only because her body is recovering physically, but also because it is still within a hormone revolution after all the experience after the pregnancy and childbirth
During this stage, sad or negative feelings are more likely to appear, because it is usually a stage with drastic changes, for which nobody or anything, not even the most complete book of maternity, can prepare us completely .
For that reason, and to remember the comic side of motherhood, it is important that they continue sharing images like Chrissy's, because they show a more "normal" or common reality of motherhood, with which many mothers may feel identified, instead to feel that they are less fortunate or worse mothers because they do not look perfect during the postpartum period.
