The 4th Trimester Bodies Project
Jackson’s website offers more of an explanation: She calls for moms to participate in her photography project out of which she intends to create a gallery and a book dedicated to honouring the changes women’s bodies go through as a result of pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding.
It’s a positive message which is designed to undermine the shame some women feel at having stretch marks, scars or stripes added to their bodies after having a baby. You can see some of the amazing (and courageous) women who have already taken part in her gallery:
