In The Realm Of Motherhood [#Poetry]

Body changes during pregnancy should be a point of pride, instead of making it something a woman should be ashamed of!

Body changes during pregnancy should be a point of pride, instead of making it something a woman should be ashamed of! 

Dusted off the mirror

blameless in the corner of my room,

my body once so svelte,

now, the slumped bosom, the corpulence,

but no signs of embarrassment

upon my swollen countenance,

in the realm of motherhood,

Never miss real stories from India's women.

Register Now

broken shackles of pulchritude

hang from the walls,

my mothering body,

the greatest miracle of all!
