The miraculous process of growing a human is empowering even when it doesn’t feel glamorous.
When I look at my maternity photos I don’t think of the tums and feeling of my ever-shrinking bladder. I feel like a freaking boss. My size didn’t matter because Ellie, my daughter, was inside me. My world was about to change and I do not regret capturing that stage of my life.
