Each one tells a story. Like many people I used to try and cover my scars. I was self conscious.
After two years of infertility that included multiple needles and surgeries, two successful pregnancies (yay 🙏🏼) that ended in c-sections and a roller coaster of hormones that resulted in a surgery that has now changed the rest of my life My body is filled with scars. At first I didn’t want to accept or embrace them; Even though so many of them gave me my . I was embarrassed that my story was different. That my story had a struggle, that my story would reveal a lack of strength or weakness.
Now, years later that I have focused on taking care of my body; physically and mentally. Now, I have no shame in my story. I am determined to share my story. I am not embarrassed of the struggles I have faced. I am proud of my journey. I know now that my body is anything but weak. I have strength, perseverance and determination to get me through all of life’s mountains.
My scars are beautiful and I wear them proudly. beatinfertility bodyacceptance iamstrong
