The Shiny Vagina and other magical stuff.

My eyebrows and fingernails are horrific. Face bloated and puffy from anaesthetic. Not one lick of makeup on – and yet, I have never been, nor will ever be, as beautiful as I look in this photo. It’s Life, messy and unairbrushed. – Eden Riley

Something happened over the last 24 hours.  I wrote a post talking about how some women stress about the first few shots of them and their newborn, and what lengths they will go to to look fresh for the camera.

Then I casually asked on my Facebook Page,  if anyone was game enough to post their first picture taken of them and their newborn.  I thought Sawhole would do it,  after all she is my employee, but I would not have guessed how many people would join in.


I am blown away.  These photos have made me laugh,  cry and everything in between.  Go and check out some of the stories that accompany these images. Thank you for helping me create this amazing space. If you, or anyone you know is having a baby soon, trust me on this.

No one will be looking at your fingernails, your dark roots or your overgrown lady garden.

I feel beyond privileged that you have chosen to share these with me.
