Is it important to look good while giving birth?
Both times I gave birth to my babies, I was a hot mess. Yes, I said it and admit to it: I looked like something straight out of a horror movie because come on, I spent the last several hours pushing a baby out of my private parts. Worrying about how I looked like was the last thing on my mind.
Yet, there’s a new post urging mothers to look their best when it comes to that all-important first photo with their newborn. You know, as in don’t forget to “put on lipstick,” “sit up straight,” and most importantly, “do something with your hair.”
I mean, what’s more important: bonding with your baby or taking a perfect photo for optimum Facebook likes?
Is it important to really care about how you look like after giving birth?
