My team of co-mom bloggers for Columbia SC Moms Blog got together recently to pose for a "Mom Bod" photo shoot, celebrating their beautiful bodacious bodies that have changed and altered themselves to fit their demanding roles as mama bears. I...
As the temperatures climb further into the 90s, I am reminded of last summer, when not only was it super hot, but I was packing an extra 35 pounds (40 pounds ... 45, whatever). I was pregnant with my...

Most moms struggle to feel confident and beautiful. Oh, they may catch a glimpse of those feelings every now and then. But they spend a lot of time feeling inadequate and unattractive - as if they don't quite measure...
