Maternity Matters #MyBirthMyBody campaign

I’ve written a post for the Maternity Matters website I co-edit, to support our #MyBirthMyBody campaign, raising awareness of issues surrounding postnatal body image along with those of bodily autonomy during pregnancy and childbirth.

We’d love to hear your experiences of the issues raised in the post – Tweet us @MaternityMattrs and use the hashtag #MyBirthMyBody to join the conversation.
