Looks really neat.  A head's up (which they do warn about on the website): the pictures are not "work safe".  I almost clicked through from the office before reading that, so figured I warn anybody else :)  Excited to check it out from home tonight!  Thanks for sharing!

Aahhh, thank you!  I needed this.  Despite a good relationship with food and lots of walks, my post-C-section tummy still looks like I am five months pregnant (my older son recently suggested I start doing crunches...).  What a lovely resource!

Thank you so, so, so much for sharing this website.. I have been feeling so disgusted with myself to the point I don't even want to leave the house. It's ridiculous. I go somewhere, and I get stared down like I'm the most disgusting thing to walk this earth, whereas before I got smiles and waves. It depresses me to no end.

That's an awesome site. I'm slowly coming to accept my new body and it helps to read about and see other women who also have stretch marks and extra skin.

When I first became a mom at 17 it was so hard to accept my new body, but this site helped me so much. I am glad that you ladies enjoy it!

Yay! The founder of SOAM is a good friend of mine. She is a wonderful mother and friend and has really helped a lot of mothers feel better about their bodies.

I think she should have a section for faces/acne after pregnancy. I like my body better now then before my pregnancy and I didn't get stretch marks really. I do have a nice c-section scar that I'd like to take some pictures of. What I'm having a problem with right now is my acne.
