The Body: Anna Fedorovna
Scrolling through my newsfeed this morning on my way back from the gym, I noticed an inspiring Tumblr post from my friend Anna. Anna has been modelling for several years now, and in my opinion has one of the best faces I have seen and one of the sweetest personalities out of anyone I have ever met. Although I have not seen her for two years as we met in Seoul, I know she has given birth to a beautiful baby boy named Noah, 14 months ago and is now living happily in Mexico City. As a side note, she also enjoys posting gorgeous make-up tutorials online in her free time which are definitely worth a look and you can find via the link to her blog at the bottom of the page.
What was interesting about this particular post that popped up, was not only the insanely impressive snapshots of her in a bikini, but her amusing and encouraging outlook on the topic of post-baby bodies. Anna counts breastfeeding, food prepping and running around after Noah as the main factors contributing to losing the pregnancy pounds, although, she does admit that she is fortunate her body has not changed too much – I’m sure her model genes help somewhat too!
It’s lovely to see she’s encouraging women to stop being so pessimistic about the changes their bodies inccur after childbirth and takes the view: ‘My body was able to make a miracle, my son was made out of my flesh and blood! If that is not a reason to love our bodies, I don’t know what is!’ I am not looking to have children any time soon and have yet to experience such changes, but I think this quote will really motivate women everywhere to start thinking differently about themselves.
