You don't just welcome a new life into your home, you grow spiritually, physically, emotionally ... and sometimes it leaves scars.

Let's face it, being pregnant and giving birth changes our bodies for good, and sometimes in ways that we don't necessarily want to embrace. I've never had a C-section, so obviously I don't know what it's like to deal with the remaining evidence of one, but I've had many friends who have been there and done that.

Some don't shirk away from the bikinis, but many are self-conscious. Yeah, maybe it would be great to live in a world where everyone thought baby-getting scars were the sexiest damn things they'd ever seen, or one in which every mom treated it as such, but we don't. We are women, and we like to be pretty, and we like products that help us feel that way.

Enter the C-section cover-up temporary tattoos. What a great way to help moms feel good about their bodies again. And to begin a conversation about motherhood, should anyone at the pool or beach ask about it!
