This New Photo Series Celebrates New Moms and Their Beautiful Bodies

October 07, 2015 2 min read

The pressure women face  to "bounce back" after having a baby is a very real reality. Whether it be from friends, family or acquaintances, people love to encourage a new mom to look her best. But what if looking and feeling your best didn't have a size? Celebrating what post-baby bodies really look like, a group of mothers took part in a powerful series of black and white portraits that serves as encouragement for all new moms to love the skin they're in, and to turn a blind eye to the pressure of losing pregnancy weight. This photo series celebrates self-love for new moms. The woman behind the series is Rockledge, Florida resident Natalie McCain. She photographed the women between three to six weeks post birth, calling the project "After the Baby is Born." The photos are part of Natalie's self-love project called "The Honest Body," which seeks to put an end to body-shaming. This photo series celebrates self-love for new moms. This photo series celebrates self-love for new moms. "Society puts so much pressure on women to 'bounce back' after giving birth and I want to help break that cycle,' she explained on her website. "These women are baring their hearts and souls to help show the variations of bodies after giving birth." This photo series celebrates self-love for new moms. With each photo comes a moving quote from the mother who is modeling. "There’s something really beautiful about the way my newborn’s tiny body molds into my soft, squishy postpartum belly," one woman noted. "While rock hard abs might be something I aspire to someday in the future, I’m really glad that isn’t my reality right now. The body I have is perfect for snuggling my baby!" Another woman noted how difficult it was to be a plus-size pregnant woman during her pregnancy. "I don’t want to be skinny. I just want to be healthy for me, my family, and my son, but it is hard," she explained. "It’s hard to feel beautiful with all of the tiger stripes across my body and all the extra weight I’ve gained." This photo series celebrates self-love for new moms.

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 2-3 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.
