Dette projekt er virkelig fantastisk, og jeg syntes, du skal se det! Det giver SÅ meget mening som mor, og så er det de vildeste (flotte) billeder, der er taget til projektet. Meget livsbekræftende, og med SÅ meget budskab.
Ashlee Wells Jackson fra Chicago står bag projektet.
Her (på engelsk) kort om projektet:
The project exists because women are judged too crudely on the way we look and are often told we don’t measure up. Because no real person can compete with the tools in Photoshop and glossy magazine covers. And because motherhood is sacred and should be celebrated.
This project exists because sometimes babies are born too soon. Because sometimes babies die. Because sometimes the best laid birth plans and the reality of our births are two very different things. And because sometimes they are everything we dreamed just the same.
Because regardless of how our babies get here we should be proud and, regardless of how we choose to feed them, we should be able to feed them where we choose whenever they are hungry.
This project exists because women and men and society need it. Because our sons and daughters deserve more. Because we deserve more.
Because we are beautiful – stretches, stripes, scars and all.
