Having a baby

Having a baby brings all sorts of happiness and joy into your life, but it can also bring a lot of new body image problems too. When you have a newborn you’ll be far too busy cooing over your new bundle to worry about what you look like, but there will come a time when you take a look in the mirror and see what 9 months of pregnancy has done to your body. At this time, a lot of women get very depressed and feel like a shadow of their former self. This is entirely avoidable, and you need to get back out into the world with confidence – so maybe it’s time you gave yourself a ‘mommy makeover’? Here’s what to do to make yourself feel better:


It’s amazing how many women completely forget about makeup when they have a baby. Sure, there are a lot of days when you don’t even leave the house, so you may think ‘why bother?’ However there are plenty of times when you do leave the house, even if it is just for a play date, so why not make yourself up a bit and help yourself feel better? You don’t need to overdo it, just a little subtle makeup will make you look and feel a million times better. Your skin will be blooming from the pregnancy hormones, so why not show it off a little?!

A Good Night Out

Sometimes all you need to get back into the swing of life is a great night out with your partner, or maybe a group of friends. Motherhood makes it harder to leave the house, but pretty soon your child will be old enough to be left with a friend or a babysitter. You need this time alone to rediscover what you are all about, so grab the opportunity with both hands, get a fabulous dress and heels on, and do yourself up a little so you feel special. A night out on the tiles will make you feel young and free again – and every mother deserves to feel like that.

Mommy Makeover Surgery

Plastic surgeons are on hand to help you out when it comes to changing things that you can’t change on your own. Many women opt for a tummy tuck after pregnancy in order to regain their flat tummy. Others go for a breast enlargement after they have breastfed as this wreaks havoc on your chest. Even a little liposuction can help – so whatever your hang-up, consider talking to a plastic surgeon about how to shift it. It’s important to only consider this option if you have finished having kids, so get that out of the way first and then start thinking about how you can restore your body to its former glory!

Being a mum is wonderful but it is also very hard, so you owe it to yourself and to your child to be the best version of yourself that you possibly can be. Sometimes little changes can make big differences to your self-confidence!
