Mum praised for sharing photos which show a very real side of pregnancy

Stephanie Rothstein who frequently shares photos of her stretch marks and excess skin on her stomach - with her 37,000 Instagram followers has been hailed for showing off the realities of pregnancy and child birth.

The athletic mum told in her own words:
"I can run 5:20 pace for a half marathon, but I still pee my pants, have diastasis recti , stretch marks, and other postpartum issues." 2 pregnancies later and some serious stretch marks made me a little embarrassed of my tummy.But I'm reminded they are simply lines of love and proof of what the human body is capable of."
Diastasis recti is condition which occur postpartum where the a gap of roughly 2.7 cm or greater develops between the two sides of the abdominal muscle.

Side note: Does this happen to black skin too KB readers? Seriously considering adopting after seeing these photos.

  2. With c-section its a little worse. Only u can love your body. No one else can do it for u. Serious consistent abs can improve it.
