We know now to take social media with a pinch of salt, because usually people are sharing the best, most sparkly moments of their lives. But Ashley Graham says it like it is, and we love her for it. Taking to Instagram, she decided to talk about her experience on postpartum healing, and it’s great to see.

“Raise your hand if you didn’t know you’d be changing your own diapers too. After all these years in fashion I never could’ve guessed that disposable underwear would be my favorite piece of clothing but here we are!

No one talks about the recovery and healing (yes even the messy parts) new moms go through. I wanted to show you guys that it’s not all rainbows and butterflies! It’s been tough, but my friend Chelsea @cmrh and ceo at @fridamom is making waves and starting honest conversations.

It’s unbelievable the obstacles we still face talking about what women really go through. All their stuff she sent me has been a life saver.”

It’s great to see a not so picture perfect side of what it’s like after you bring your little miracle into the world, because these honest conversations really do need to happen.

Fair play, Ashley.
