How my pregnancy changed my body and my confidence




After giving birth to my daughter it took a long time before I could look at my body and love it or think about it being sexy. I just saw less muscles, more fat en loose skin. I went shopping for nice underwear to feel more sexy but I started crying in the changing room. The shop owner said to me: but why are you crying. You are skinny, though. But I didn't see a skinny woman. Now, 1,8 years later I feel more comfortable. I was able to buy new clothes that make me feel beautiful and in which I feel good. I also went talking to a psychologist who only works with women. She helped me a lot.
