Celebrate all the bellies!

This story was sent to me by a blog reading family member–Influencer says her belly bump should be ‘celebrated’ even though she is not pregnant.

Here’s the story, “Body positive influencer Nelly London has taken to Instagram to embrace her belly as she believes all tums should be celebrated – not just women who have a baby bumps.”

“Baby bumps are glorious, they’re beautiful, they literally bring life into the world, and we treat them as such (rightly so). But having a bump for any other reason – not so much celebration. Even if that bump is there BECAUSE you’ve had a baby, no no no, please transform immediately to your previous state so it isn’t even possible for us notice you once carried life.

I have not carried any children but I’m going to celebrate my body anyway ❤️”
