She’s dedicated to reminding moms that the ups and downs of parenting are totally normal, and promoting self-acceptance amongst moms who have lost confidence after their pregnancy.

“No one warns you about the dark sides of motherhood and pregnancy,” she says, “No one gives you a heads up on how much you change physically and mentally after you become a mother.”

So she’s set out to give all moms that “heads up”, and her latest venture has gone crazy viral online.

Alexandra shared a photo of her “mommy tummy” and “mom bod” on Instagram along with an inspiring message.

“I know a lot of you guys are probably thinking ‘why would she post this picture’, but it took me 18 months to get here,” she wrote.

Well, I know a lot of you guys are probably thinking ‘why would she post this picture’, but, it took me 18 months to get here, 18 months to not cry when I look in the mirror, 18 months to finally feel beautiful in my own skin again! No one warns you about the dark sides of motherhood and pregnancy.. no one gives you a heads up on how much you change physically and mentally after you become a mother. It’s been a long and hard postpartum ride for me.. 18 months after my first son and 5 months after my second son I feel like I can finally see the light ✨ and it genuinely feels amazing💖 cheers to you mamas who are battling postpartum depression and still getting up everyday for your children! Cheers to you mamas who still cry about the marks on your skin from birthing your perfect babies! Cheer to motherhood, cheers to knowing that this too shall pass! And things will get better💗 #motherhood #breastmilk #breastfeeding #normalizebreastfeeding #mommyandme #tigerstripes #postpartum #postpartumdepression #babies #mombod #proud #inlove
