In just one year, Eliza Curby's body went through two pregnancies and grew three babies. After giving birth via emergency C-section to a baby girl in January 2016, the Aussie blogger was focused on physically recovering and adjusting to life as a new mom. But when little Charlie was just 6 weeks old, Eliza started feeling off and blamed it on sleep deprivation, only to find out a few weeks later that she was pregnant again –- with twins.


When Eliza gave birth for the second time in 11 months, she welcomed two baby boys and shared what the process did to her body physically. "Because I'm not embarrassed of the scars my body now carries," Eliza captioned a raw photo of her stomach. "Because I'm proud of what my body has done for me. Because many women feel the need to hide it."

In order to show a more realistic image of what it means to be new mom, Eliza wants to show off her postpartum reality among the countless other women who share their "perfect" bodies just weeks after giving birth. "Because I feel beautiful in my own skin -- even if there's a lotttt of it!" she wrote. "Because beauty takes many forms."

Although some might not want others to see exactly what their body looks like after having three babies in 11 months, Eliza is putting each stretch mark out there for an important reason. "Because I can," she wrote. "Because you should also be proud. This is me ... because I love my body."
