A mother gets body-shamed after revealing her pregnancy stretch marks


A mother gets body-shamed after revealing her pregnancy stretch marks.

Pregnancy is probably one of the most difficult phases in a mother's life. This is a very sensitive phase that requires a woman to be extra careful as she is carrying a very delicate being in her womb. After the whole span of pregnancy comes one of the most painful challenges that a mother has to go through, which is giving birth to the child.

Recently, a mother posted photos of her stomach online and it became viral. Her stomach looked odd because of too much stretch marks.

Doreen Ching, a mother of four, from Johor province Malaysia was criticized online for having too many children at such a young age. In response to her critics, she posted photos of her stomach which is heavily scarred by stretch marks from pregnancy on her Facebook account. People further commented that this is because of her consecutive pregnancies.

Doreen explained in her post that she has accepted the changes that happened to her body after pregnancy. She further said that it will never return to its original state after having given birth to triplets and one daughter.

In her post, she mentioned about people asking about her stretch marks. She said "I received a lot of mummies’ inquiries asking me how to eliminate the scars as you’re gonna be scared… and that’s the price, even if you have money. There’s no way to get rid of it, and it’s like, every day, every day, every day". She also narrated how she first felt about her situation saying "Only 21 at the time, I wondered how I would be able to accept my stomach looking like this for the rest of my life. The first thing I did when I got out of the delivery room was to look at my stomach and my tears came out. I was cracked up to a very serious kind of rupture and skin tissue was damaged."

Her post reached a very wide number audience and she received mixed reactions from many people. There were sympathizers who gave her some much-needed support, while there were also some who bashed her with hurtful comments. She reacted to her bashers by saying "I see a lot of people commenting calling me ‘ugly’ and it makes me very sick so much so I want to throw up. Some men said it was all the woman’s fault for wanting to have so many kids. Do you have any respect for the women of the world? Your mother? Your wife? And a woman who can afford to have children?"

Her posts have attracted the attention of many people in the internet community. There were people who gave her negative feedback who kept on commenting about how ugly and disgusting her stomach looks and even further saying that she can only blame herself for what happened because she wanted many children. Despite all those negative remarks, she still received overwhelmingly positive feedback from many people, especially from mother and the female audience in general. People praised her for not losing to the hateful people and further encouraged her to just don't mind them. There were also some who criticized the people who were bashing Doreen by saying that those people will never understand the true extent of a mother's love.
