The postpartum period can be one of the most challenging for women who have just become mothers. Hence the importance of a strong support network. In the case of Hailey Garnett, an American influencer and mother of three, her husband Cody promptly took on the supportive role, and ended up thrilling Garnett's more than 140,000 followers with an account of changes in her postpartum body. .
"She asked me to write something about her body postpartum. I figured it would be easy, but then I started thinking, what to write about? Of course, things look a little different – but in the grand scheme of things, nothing has changed. The reasons why I fell in love with her had nothing to do with any of the postpartum body parts.
She still has the same beautiful smile, determined mind, moving body and strong work ethic as the girl I fell in love with for over 15 years. She still has the same sense of humor. Your smell enchants me. The postpartum body looks a little different, but why should this be a factor that bothers my life? Macia The soft, padded skin around my belly button held my most precious possessions for 18 months. The marks show the strength needed to support the weight of two beautiful girls to be raised by this mother.
Nothing has changed or changed my love for my wife. I'm praised for being a "great husband," but that makes no sense. I am literally doing as little as possible, loving my wife for who she is, imperfections and everything. Imperfections make the world fun. If everything were perfect and all women were like Barbie dolls, wouldn't we all be bored? How would we show what life has put us through?
So no matter what your body looks like, whether it's scars, surgery, facial hair, cellulite or a postpartum belly, honestly, who cares? Or who should care about that? Be good to each other. Learn from your mistakes and the mistakes of others. "My wife isn't perfect and that's what makes me love her." And for husbands out there who don't do their fatherly duty: changing diapers, cooking, cleaning, and telling your wife how beautiful she is – change that, you are a team. I should write about a belly, but honestly, it affects me so little that I ramble on about everything else. "
