A Minneapolis mom and her husband are on a mission to help women embrace their post-baby bodies. Angie Sonrode works as a Doula and has seen how a post-baby body affects many new moms.
Previously ashamed of how she looked, the mother of 4 has had her fair share of negative body image issues. But more than anything she wants new moms to take pride in their hard-won baby-bodies.
So Angie and her husband started the Mid Drift Movement. It’s purpose: to challenge societies’ expectations on how a mother’s body should look. As a Doula, Angie speaks with moms every day that are unhappy with the way they look, but her desire is to rebuild their confidence. She wants moms to embrace the baby bodies they’ve earned through months of discomfort and the triumph of bringing life into this world.
Her message: embrace your unique you and be joyful. In the end, people will remember your light and positivity – not your stretch marks.
