I haven’t read the book but I have seen the kickstarter campaign vid on Upworthy and let me tell you. Just from that, I know that I should buy this book, and I plan to! I had my first child a year ago and I look at myself and feel so gross and ugly and as if I’m unworthy of love from my husband because I have “let myself go”. Some days I feel beautiful. But then I catch a glimpse of myself in a full length mirror and see the extra weight from growing a beautiful baby girl inside of me and I am disgusted. I see this video and I feel a little less disgusted. I love myself a little more. Because even though I am not thin, I know I am beautiful. Because beauty isn’t defined by someone else. Beauty is defined by yourself and when you find yourself beautiful, the rest of the world will follow. And this beautiful project has brought so much beauty into my life. THANK YOU, from the bottom of my heart. THANK YOU FOR HELPING ME FEEL BEAUTIFUL AGAIN.

Such a great collection of stories and photographs on quality crisp white eco friendly paper. The graphic layout of text and photos is soooo well done. Shared with my daughter age 15 who enjoyed viewing real women who are also Moms! It totally helped me accept the body I have and to be appreciative of all that it has done…Thank you Jade!

Just had my 2nd baby 7 mos ago and I am struggling with loving my body. This is exactly what I needed. I have a hard time even looking at myself. From the extra weight, stretch marks, and now c section scar it is really hard to appreciate the skin I’m in. So Thank you Ms. Beall. This book is a necessity for women like me. I am now a huge fan!

Hi, I would love to buy the book as a Mothers day present to myself ;-) Do you ship outside the US? I live in Belgium, Europe.

I had to buy. I needed to see this. Especially after having 3 kids by 25. I worked hard on my body and gladly gave it to my children.

aha, it is heavy… perhaps I wait for the paperback to come :)

I would also like to buy a book, but live in sweden, worldwide shipping would be good! Great project!

Why can’t I choose the option shipping Worldwide? :(
Absolutely love this project, your photographs, the women in all of those are incredibly beautiful, as we all are

Thank you! I have been struggling with my body since my daughter was born (now 4 years old). I am extreme about my diet and fitness regiem to the point where I feel it almost defines me. I began using my distaste for my body and recreated it through my University women and gender studies courses! I photographed my friends post-partum bodies and made a scrapbook and let them make statements about their bodies! I AM SO THANKFUL THERE IS A BIGGER project out there like yours! everyBODY is different and they should be represented! This gives me hope that women (including myself) can stop hating their beautiful bodies because media representations tell them its not normal or the ideal. Beautiful… simply said

This video was so moving. I am a fan of Jade’s Facebook page and the work is amazing. I work with pregnant and parenting adolescents. I can not wait to share this book with them so they know that the human body is beautiful, regardless of the shape. Thank you!

The video always makes me teary, and I’ve been following your progress on this book for over a year – I’m so excited to finally place my order, and have my beautiful book home for Mother’s Day

I love it! My daughter gave me vertical stretch marks and my son gave me horizontal stretch marks. So I can play tic tac toe! Cocoa butter/vit e yeah ok, but they are marks of love!

I love this so much, it nearly brought me to tears. As a mother of two soulful children (2.5 years and 9 months) I too have struggled with my body image. I am thankful I have a husband who loves every curve, just as it is. Perhaps this book will show up for me for Mother’s Day :)

Dear Jade, I adore you. Thank you for taking a vision and making it real. For elevating the significance of real bodies, the power of female support, the profound cultural shift that can happen when genuine conversations aren’t clouded by edits and omissions. I am so honored to have connected with you.
love,
Kelli Martinelli (and the folks of gDiapers)

What a great project.

As a mother who just brought her first pair of jeans after baby number 2 and as a birth worker and cofounder of a collective of birth workers who watches bodies transform and blossom, I was filled with joy, all the way to the top, to find this project! All I can say is, I swoon!

I’m very excited to see this project happening so well, too. As a woman, to realize how beautiful we are, and very important to understand our true nature is. We don’t wanna live in a lie! Thank you so much Jade & Alok. You are beautiful beings. x Veronica from Taiwan

Michal, I worked for many hours yesterday to fix our systems after reading your comment. Jade and I want this work to reach as many people around the world as possible, so no geo-fencing here (great phrase)! Thank you for spurring us to figure out our system limitations and growing beyond them. We are doing our best and VERY grateful for your interest and support of the work. You matter. -Alok

Just a day after my comment you have got back to me to tell me that the form is now updated and you ship worldwide. You are awesome! Cannot wait to get my pre-ordered copy.

Best of luck,

Michal

Dear Jade,

First of all congratulations on the idea. I think it is a great project and a very needed one. So does my wife, a mother and photographer too.

I wanted to pre-order a book for her and support your project. Unfortunately the only two countries you seem to be shipping to is US and Canada. Do not you think there are mothers outside this region?

Please do not geo-fence your project. It will be much more powerful if released globally.

Sincerely,

Michał
