Mom’s Postpartum Selfie Goes Viral
In the trending photo on Instagram, the woman says "This is what 24 hours postpartum looks like."
The woman in the photo is Erica Andrews who posted the photo one day after having her fifth and final child.
Andrews goes on to share "My body feels like it ran a marathon and my heart is wide open from yesterday's travels."
She also refers to her feelings as "...raw. Emotional. Different."
As a man, I'll never know what it's like to have a child. The feeling, the connection, the love.
However, I'm also a father. I have seen what happens when your wife gives birth. While I might not see the feeling, the connection or the love. You know it's there.
This black and white Instagram photo encapsulates all of it.
