Let’s Talk About Post Pregnancy Body Image: Please Be Kind to Yourself!

Ever since having my third baby, I’ve developed some serious body issues.

I’m not exactly sure what it was that I didn’t like about my body, but, I was determined to change it all. I felt sick when I looked in the mirror… and I’m fairly sure that’s not a healthy way of looking at yourself! Read More
