Being a mother is a precious feeling, imagine carrying a baby for nine months and take care of it for a lifetime. Motherhood and the journey aren’t that easy, especially postpartum. A lot of mothers experience postpartum ********** due to many reasons such as hormonal changes, body shaming, insecurities, mood swings, etc.
A 21-year-old woman from Malaysia named Doreen Ching was body shamed due to a picture of her stretch marks posted on the Internet.
“Only 21 at the time, I wondered how I would be able to accept my stomach looking like this for the rest of my life. The first thing I did after leaving the delivery room was to look at my stomach and ***. I was cracked up to a very serious kind of rupture and skin tissue was damaged. Many told me I looked ugly and disgusting, and that they wanted to vomit.”
She has four kids, and due to her slimness, her stomach stretched a lot, so her stretch marks are noticeable in the picture. Many netizens don’t like it and find it disgusting. But there are also many netizens who reacted positively.
Some netizens saluted the woman as she sacrificed her body just to have children and a happy family. Some loved the fact that women can bring happiness to the world in return for stretch marks as proof.
Body shaming isn’t a nice way to let people down, especially mothers who are strong enough to carry a child in her stomach and take care of it for a lifetime.
