A Reminder To Pregnant Women Everywhere That Your Body Is Beautiful And It Is YOURS

April 19, 2015 2 min read

When you’re pregnant, the whole world thinks they get to talk about your body. enhanced-7538-1426631383-26 “Wow you’re huge! What do you mean you’re only three months? Are you sure there aren’t twins in there?” enhanced-6923-1426631651-22 A total stranger once called over the entire staff of a fro-yo shop to ogle the size of my belly. Mysteriously, I did not knock her out. Alternately, they might not think you’re big enough, and try to force feed you sandwiches. People seem to lose all sense of boundaries when it comes to a pregnant body, which is lame when it’s your pregnant body, because suddenly strangers are guessing your weight and massaging your lower abdomen on the street. But there’s something I want you to know. enhanced-13219-1426633038-28 No matter what shape you are? No matter how much you’ve gained, or lost, or stagnated, or caught up to your mother, or doubled down from your last baby? You’re f*cking gorgeous, mama. enhanced-30615-1426631211-4 That beautiful body you’re rocking is making a baby. enhanced-8213-1426632971-10 You don’t owe belly access to anyone. You’re not Santa Claus. Maybe you love when people fawn over your growing bump. Good for you girl, it is glorious. But maybe you don’t. That’s okay too. You’ll have a lot of boundaries to set as a parent, this is just the beginning. enhanced-11237-1426632626-13 Next time someone rubs your belly, try rubbing theirs back. Or just tell them you don’t like it. Either one should work. Maybe you revel in it when folks tell you you’re glowing. enhanced-22239-1426633388-22 And you are glowing. Soak it up. But maybe you just wish people would stop calling it out every time you start to sweat. enhanced-8337-1426634272-23 It’s hard carrying a human around inside your body. Sweat pools places you never knew about. So I just wanted to take a moment to appreciate you, pregnant women of earth. enhanced-29521-1426633827-4 You put up with a lot of bullshit. enhanced-14009-1426634383-12 But you are SLAYING. Go ahead. Set some boundaries if you want to. Start a hashtag. #BACKOFFTHEBELLY. #BelliesAreBeautiful enhanced-4474-1426634500-42 Your body is doing something amazing right now. The rest is just noise. Source: Buzzfeed

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
