As women around the world post pics of their newly-trim post-baby bodies, one new mum is proud of her larger figure after giving birth.
Laura, from the blog Mum on the Run, said her body on the left was slim and socially acceptable.
'On the right is me now,' she writes. 'Stretch marks. A droopy belly button. Thicker, not many bones protruding, but more dimples that represent cellulite.
'People don't want to see this photo. All of a sudden it's not okay. It's not pleasing to the eye. It's not a body to be admired.'
Laura continues: 'But you know what? I have achieved more with this body, than I have with my old body. I've lived more. I've given more. This body, THIS body should be celebrated and admired.'
