Mom Can Be Beautiful Again


Motherhood is such a beautiful thing.  But there are some women dread it, or secretly wish they still had the same body they did before pregnancy. It is not that they do not love their children; they very much appreciate their new lives and are grateful to have their little wonders, but motherhood, for some, is typically emblematic of the end of a particular lifestyle.   Not true!  As a mother, you can still do all the things you did before.  It’s true however that you may have a few more sleepless nights and your body may have slightly changed, but that doesn’t mean your life is over. Some women seem to survive pregnancy without changing shape, but most are not so lucky.

There are a variety of ways a mother can feel better. The first is simply to trim those pregnancy pounds with good old fashioned exercise. Evolution unfortunately sees fit to have us gain weight during pregnancy because it helped our ancestors to survive the birthing process.  However, there is just one problem.  To the modern woman who wants to look healthy and youthful forever, it is a bit of a pain.  Most women can use the treadmill and exercise bike after pregnancy; however, it may not get rid of problem areas and stretch marks.   Raise your hand if you’ve encountered those during your pregnancy.

Losing weight the natural way often takes months of hard work and proper diet. This is not an easy thing; there is always the temptation to eat and binge and a busy work schedule can interfere with efforts to get in shape. Taking care of a baby is a chore in itself. They say that stress makes it harder to lose weight, and a new life as a mother most certainly does not help. There are easy ways to lose those unwanted pounds, and some might consider a mild surgery.

Have you ever considered a light nip and tuck to get rid of stretch marks and that extra skin that comes along with pregnancy?   Yes, I’m talking about liposuction–which is no longer a dreaded word like it used to be in the past. The moral issue today is moot; the busy Mom is simply taking a medical procedure to help restore what 9 months did to her body.  From what I’ve read, modern techniques seem safer, less unobtrusive, and rather painless; and the costs have even gone down.

So how much is the cost of liposuction? It is still in the range of a few thousand dollars, but the procedure can be broken up into easy sessions. The modern tummy surgery sure has changed today and some may not even call it surgery. Some may even compare it to going to the dentist. I don’t know since I’ve never tried it.

So tell me.  Have you ever considered a surgery such as liposuction to get you pre-pregnancy body back into shape?


  1. I’ve never looked so terrible since becoming a mother but I’m the happiest I’ve ever been too. :)

  2. I’m with Melinda. I’m super happy and I absolutely adore my life. But, I’m not gonna lie…I’ve considered liposuction to get rid of this tummy.
