It may not be perfect, but it's full of love
Maya Vorderstrasse and her husband Tim keep their Instagram game pretty strong, but they aren’t just doing it for the attention. They’re doing it to make a point. The couple started their account to combat all of the stuff they were seeing out there that made pregnancy look like a breeze.
“Honestly I was so tired of seeing motherhood portrayed as perfect, flawless, and effortless on social media because I never felt like it was like that for me. So I embraced my chaotic life, and decided to share it with everyone in the hopes of helping other mothers realize that it’s OK to not have it all figured out,” Maya said. And people are loving her fantastic (and real) photos about motherhood.
“Outtake from the other day. This picture is too beautiful not to post, stretch marks and all. 24 weeks pregnant.”
“I have no words to thank everyone for the overwhelming love poured over Zoey’s last picture. She really is the prettiest cutest strongest most amazing baby Tim and I could have prayed for. She slept the whole flight back home, and distributed smiles at the airport… she even got a junior officer badge and proudly walked around with it on her chest.”
“Bathroom Deprivation: When I need to pee they always follow me. When I need to poop, haha ain’t no mother got time for that.”
