Our bodies are the source and creator of motherhood.
They are the vessel for the gifts of our children.
But what happens when our body doesn't follow the ‘plan' of pregnancy and birth?
What happens when you feel your body let you down,
or is now changed forever?
Dr Rebecca Ray is one of the most beautiful and insightful writers on instagram at the moment – and is known for her radical self-acceptance work.
But in this interview on her journey into and through motherhood, she opens up like never before – sharing her struggles with her body during fertility treatment, then pregnancy and then post-birth.
And in the process, breaks down the expectation that we should ‘love' our bodies, and instead invites us to radically reimagine our relationship with the body that made us mothers.
