Embracing the 4th trimester.
Body after baby can be difficult to come to terms with.
Although celebrities would rather have you think that it's possible to bounce back enough in two weeks to be on the cover of a magazine, it's not always that easy. And that's okay — it's totally normal for your body to change after giving birth.
One Chicago-based photographer, Ashlee Wells Jackson, took this idea to heart and created the 4th Trimester Bodies Project. She photographs the changed bodies of new moms so they can celebrate the changes that created their child.
