How do you feel about your body? Like, REALLY feel? So much shifts after we have babies, adopt babies, and become mothers, and the shift has a very real manifestation in our bodies. That’s just all there is to it.   From “Mommy Makeovers” to boobs, Botox, and just about everything in between, we take a deep dive into what it means to love our bodies as moms, and all the different ways we do it.
