Just stop it….
Posted: Aug 05 2014
Lately there have been quite a few celebrities posting beautiful pregnancy pictures, breastfeeding photos and selfies.
Oh how we have wanted to post them all to social media, but something has stopped us - the negative comments that might follow, the backlash that might be felt. I understand that celebrities have put themselves out there, ready to be judged, however they are real people and first and foremost - Mothers.
Can we not just love the amazing pictures of Christina Aguilera pregnant and beautiful? How can we not appreciate how great it is for Olivia Wilde to share breastfeeding pictures and know it’s a step to making breastfeeding more accepted in public?
Christina tells V magazine “As a woman, I’m proud to embrace my body through all stages of life. Staying fearless and confident in surrendering to the unknowns the future has in store.” How powerful is that?
Olivia Wilde "Being shot with Otis is so perfect because any portrait of me right now isn't complete without my identity as a mother being a part of that. Breastfeeding is the most natural thing."
So stop – and just appreciate these gorgeous photos, after all, these are just Mothers embracing being Mum’s - who happen to be gorgeous?
