It gets real... real mean.

Mothers get a lot of flack for doing things that are (normal to them) not-so-normal to the outside world. Take breastfeeding for instance, people tend to freak OUT when moms breastfeed their babies in public or even post photos of them doing it. People who don’t have kids can be pretty judgmental, forcing moms to feel insecure about their parenting skills.

Moms don’t get the best support from those who don’t have kids, so banding together is really important. In a Facebook group for moms, a member posted a text conversation between her and the photographer she hired to take pictures of her giving birth to her baby. Things took a turn for the worse when the photographer pretty much told her she was unfit to become a mother.
