This Irish Mom Is Revealing The Struggles Of Pregnancy With One Hilarious Pic At A Time

  •  August 25, 2017

 

You’ll often hear people say that pregnancy is the most magically beautiful period of a woman’s life. Whoever crafted that nifty little lie hasn’t met Maya Vorderstrasse, mother of two, who got tired of all the ‘easy’ tags pregnancy is dumped with. So, she decided to take up the task of showing everyone what ‘soon-to-be-mommies’ really go through.

Maya Vorderstrasse, a mom of a 1-year-old and 2-week-old, “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,” she told the HuffPost.

She posts pictures from the 25th week of her pregnancy and boy! They are brutally honest and hilarious at the same time.

Recently, Vorderstrasse has given birth to her daughter, Hazel and is continuing to share her funny letter boards to depict what happens after delivery. We can’t wait to see her next post!

Don’t act like you don’t know ??? . It has been rough, but we are getting there.There’s blood, excruciating pain, and so many tears, but I’d do it all over again for her. If it hadn’t worked out, she would have been bottle fed too like Zoey was after 6 months, because feeding your baby shouldn’t be anyone’s business but yours and baby’s!!! DO WHAT WORKS FOR YOU! *My incredible, comfortable and easy maternity hoodie is by @boobdesign *My delicious lactation treats and tea are by @mrspatels and THEY EVEN HAVE CHOCOLATE!
