Madre conmueve por revelar cómo enfrentó la depresión post parto ¡Mira!

Tras meses de sufrir por cómo había quedado su cuerpo, la joven decidió contar su experiencia y aprendió a querer las marcas que le dejó el embarazo.

Tener un hijo no es algo que se tome a la ligera. La vida cambia en 180 grados al igual que nuestro cuerpo y mente. Si antes era primero, yo segundo yo y tercero yo, ahora todo se concentra en torno al nuevo ser que trajiste al mundo.

Y si bien todo se pinta color de rosa, lo cierto es que la realidad no es tan así. Al menos eso es lo que describió una joven estadounidense, Ruth Lee, quien tras dar a luz en noviembre de 2016 tuvo depresión post parto.

Tras meses de sufrir por cómo había quedado su cuerpo, la joven decidió contar su experiencia y aprendió a querer las marcas que le dejó el embarazo.

“Hice esta foto y no me podía creer que fuera yo. Comparto esto porque sé en mi corazón que hay gente ahí afuera apurada por el ‘qué dirán’. Que pensarán que no son bellas, que sientan que están arruinadas, o que no merecen la pena, o que no son lo suficientemente buenas. Tal vez lo tuyo no sean cicatrices físicas, pero tal vez se trata de una relación fallida, una dificultad en tu carrera, problemas económicos o simplemente sentirte perdida en la vida. Ante todo, sé amable contigo misma. Que sepas que no estás sola. No dejes que los medios te digan qué es lo bello y qué es real”, escribió en Instagram.

I’m posting this tonight with tears in my eyes. I can’t help it. The pregnancy and birth of my little girl was the most amazing thing I’ve ever been a part of. Some people don’t want kids, and I respect that. Really, I do. But for me, You see, I always have. When it finally happened though, it was so hard to fully comprehend. Pregnancy and babies, I mean that’s common. It’s everywhere. But when it’s YOUR body and YOUR baby, it’s so different. You literally feel like it’s a miracle. Because, when it happens to you, it is. What brings me to Instagram tonight, is the post-baby. I followed SO many pregnant models during my pregnancy. And when they photographed themselves pool-side 5 minutes postpartum, I thought, “wow! I hope that happens to me!” I was 25 when I gave birth. I was healthy. I was young. I stayed active during my pregnancy. I took the best prenatals, went to the gym, used every kind of stretch mark prevention you could think of. I took hours of birthing classes, read every book under the sun, and studied natural childbirth my whole pregnancy. I STILL ended up with a traumatic labor, cesarean section, scars, stretch marks, and unfortunately the inability to breastfeed long term. I took this picture a few days after I gave birth, when my PPD really first reared its head into my life. I took this and actually was horrified. I couldn’t believe it was me. I’m sharing it because I know in my heart that there are people out there that struggle with inadequacy. That might think they are not beautiful, that they might be ruined, less worthy, or not good enough. Yours might not actually be physical scars, but maybe, a failed relationship, a difficulty in your career, a mental struggle, money issues, or just feeling lost in life. Be kind to yourself. And know that you are not alone. Comparison is the thief of joy. Don’t let social media taint your view of what is beautiful, what is REAL. And above all, know that if you are struggling, I am here. I have an open inbox or (if you actually know me) an open door. #stopcensoringmotherhood #nofilter
