Mum post snap of her breastfeeding baby naked in bath to encourage other mothers about ‘power’ of female bodies

A mum-of-one has shared a photo of her breastfeeding her baby naked in the bath to celebrate her post-baby “saggy belly.” Emmy Waller, 26, posted the incredibly intimate snap to encourage other women to feel confident about the ‘power’ of female bodies. She also shared it s a mark of triumph at being able to still feed her 12-week-old daughter Alice despite her battling difficulties and jaundice.

The image shows the pair lay naked together in the bath, Emmy cradling Alice’s tiny body as she feeds from her – and the mum makes no attempt to hide her ‘stretch marks or big belly’. Instead, Emmy bravely shared the powerful picture in a bid to inspire other women to celebrate their bodies regardless how they look.

Emmy, from Leeds, Yorks, said: “Of course the thing about the photo is that I thought I looked awful with stretch marks and a big belly, but people have been coming to me saying it’s the most beautiful thing they’ve ever seen.

“Now I don’t care what my body looks like – it’s made my baby and the result of that is I have a saggy belly.

“I only had my baby 12 weeks ago. Women’s bodies are strong and powerful, but I’m no superwoman.

“It’s just something natural and this is how I look and I’ve inspired other women to feel amazing too.

“Many others have posted their own breastfeeding pictures on social media as well.
