My name is Kristin and I am the owner and creator of Free the Mother. If you are reading this, you are either related to me, or you somehow found me in the vast space of social media. Either way, welcome!
Last year, I gave birth to my first baby and my life has never been the same. Of course it's changed for obvious reasons, but being a mother has also changed me as a person. I was opened up to a whole new world, and that world isn't always pretty.
Every day is a new struggle. We try our best to take care of our little earthlings. And just when you think you're doing a good job, society is telling you you're not.
Mothers shouldn't be afraid to breastfeed in public, or wear a bikini because they are embarrassed by their stretch marks. Mothers shouldn't feel ashamed because they needed a c-section, or feel guilty about suffering from postpartum depression.
We should be proud of ourselves. We should embrace our incredible bodies.
Mothers should feel free.
