Ashley Graham Inspires Women To Share Real, Raw, Pregnancy And Postpartum Pics

Ashley Graham’s “same same but different” bump pic has inspired a body confidence revolution, and we are all for it!

Body confidence badass Ashley Graham, who is currently expecting her first child with her husband of nine years, Justin Ervin, recently shared some images of her gorgeous baby bump on social media. They were stunning, fierce, and majorly promoted self-love to say the least — everything we would expect from the supermodel. Unsurprisingly, we weren’t the only ones who were inspired by Graham’s pics. In her latest Instagram stories the supermodel shares several of the photographic responses from around the world that other women had to her “same same but different” photo, and they are all sorts of awesome.

same same but a little different

In the images, the women detail their own unique experiences with pregnancy, whether due to health complications or body image struggles. Each individual story highlights the simple truth that there isn’t anything “one size fits all” about pregnancy. Each mother’s experience is totally different than the the next, which can be demonstrated by all of the wildly unique baby bump and post-pregnancy photos.

One mother shared details about her struggles with placenta previa and the physical and emotional ways it is impacting her pregnancy.

Other moms-to-be simply shared beautiful bump pics, which were depicted in all shapes and sizes.

– Inspiration @ashleygraham « same same but a little different » -Une photo « intime » …- – -J’ai jamais osé poster des photos de moi aussi « nue », pas de photo en bikini sexy, pas de photo en sous vêtements, pas de nue artistique, par peur du regard des autres, par honte surtout, par peur parce que mon corps n’est pas dans la norme. Complexé par mon ventre, mes vergetures, mes cuisses, mes bras ou ma cellulite ! – – – -Mais voilà je suis enceinte, je me trouve belle, je me trouve pétillante, je trouve mon corps fort, puissant, impressionnant parce que je n’aurais jamais pensé tout ce qu’un corps peut être capable de faire et de subir afin de donner la vie. – -Alors je ne correspond pas a l’étiquette « avion de chasse » ou « bombe », je ne suis pas le genre de filles que les mecs matent et like avec des photos « sexy » ! Je correspond à l’image d’une femme qui aime son corps (enfin qui fait de son mieux pour l’aimer c’est pas tous les jours faciles) Je correspond a l’image d’une femme qui s’assume et qui est en bonne santé ! – -Donc oui c’est « intime » comme photo surtout sur Instagram en public, mais je remercie le genre de femme comme @ashleygraham qui elle n’hésite pas à se « montrer intimement » parce qu’elle redonne espoir et force aux femmes, elle dédramatise le fait d’avoir des vergetures et la peau pas ferme, elle sort des stéréotypes des filles en maillot string avec un corps « parfait », elle incite les femmes qui se dévalorisent a s’assumer et se trouver « normal », alors moi j’aime mon corps, j’aime encore plus mon corps de femme enceinte et je suis FIÈRE de mon physique 🥰 – #loveyourbody #grossesse #baby #baby2019 #pregnant #pregnancy #mumtobe #enceinte #mumtobe #mumtobe2019 #enceinte #baby #babybump #babygirl #29weekspregnant #ventregrossesse #enceinte2019 #maternityphotography #bodypositive #firstchild #7monthspregnant #babycomingsoon #selflove #igersparis #igers #bebemetisse #instafollow #followme #loveyourcurves #reunionisland #974

So many current mothers also shared photos of their postpartum bodies, celebrating their stretch marks and c-section scars in all of their glory, while also pointing out the absurdity of trying to get your body back after becoming a mother.

The Truth Ja, ich habe bereits 5kg abgenommen mit meiner Diät und fühle mich auch wesentlich wohler – auch wenn es nur Wasser war.. viel wichtiger ist aber: ich fühle mich viel fiter und vitaler als noch vor ein paar Wochen.. gestern hatte ich eine super Diskussion mit meinen Aprilmamas ❤ @hanna_im_babyglueck @mommyoflian_ @mama_sarah_und_louis @all.about_eve @happybaby_andme @sch.sarah_ @aller.guten.dinge.sind.4 @jeeeyhey ❤ Vielen Dank meine Lieben! Hat wahnsinnig gut getan 🙏🏻 Klar ist man super stolz auf seinen Körper, ein Wunder vollbracht zu haben.. doch stolz auf seine Streifen, Wabbelbauch, Hängebusen und Schwangerschaftspfunde ist ganz bestimmt niemand! (Oder nur ganz wenige) ich zumindest gehöre zu denen, die die körperlichen Veränderungen nicht wirklich toll findet und ich werde ganz bestimmt meine Brüste irgendwann machen lassen! Das sind keine Brüste mehr sondern eher eine leergetrunkene Caprisonnepackung.. 🤷🏼‍♀️ #truth #newborn #newbornboy #newbornmommy #momm #mommystruggles #afrerbaby #afterbirth #afterpregnancy #afterbabybody #afterbabybelly #mommyblogger #mamiblogger #switzerland #fürmehrrealitätaufinstagram

This is my postpartum body. Something I never thought I would share publicly. . . I’m covered in stretch marks I never got until after my son was born. My hips are wide from carrying him for seven and a half months. I have a scar I’ll carry forever, a reminder that my son arrived into this world safely when my labour was failing. I’m not ashamed that my stomach looks like this, some people might be offended by it and that’s okay. . . I could pick out every flaw in my body if I wanted to but if it wasn’t for all these flaws I wouldn’t have my son. Everyday I am so blessed that I get to be his mama. He brings me so much joy and makes my heart swell up every time I see him. I never truly knew what love was until I had him. . . As for my body? I’ll learn to love her as much as I love him 🖤 _________________________ #selflove #postpartum #learningtolovemyself #ohboythatwaspersonal😅

Every single image is a reminder that the beauty of pregnancy is universal. No matter what you look like before, during or after pregnancy, a woman’s body and all that makes it unique should be celebrated — a message Graham has been spreading her entire career.

“I’m not here to make you feel ‘beautiful,’ whatever that means,” she said at a Glamour event in New York in 2017. “I’m here to make you understand that true beauty is being OK with who you are. Being OK with who you are is a revolutionary act. And making someone else feel OK with who they are? That’s downright heroic.”

If that is true — which we are totally confident it is — Ashley Graham is officially our body confidence hero. Keep posting those bump pics, mama.
