Get your self-love on: 10 body positive mamas to follow on Instagram

Slowly but surely, the world is changing. Us mums have stood up and given the middle finger to beauty standards that we no longer wish to accept and we cannot bear the thought of our daughters facing the age-old scrutiny of the mom-bod. 

However, it can be tough to stay on the body-positive train. Society gives us a smack on the arse every few days, to rudely remind us that the toxicity still exists.

Trying to convince ourselves we are beautiful in a world that seems to tell us otherwise is EXHAUSTING- especially when you've spent the day raising humans.

To help you immerse yourself in vibes that will get you feeling loved up about yourself, we have come up with a list of 10 body positive mammas- a mix of comedians and self-love gurus- who tell it like it is!


AKA: Riona -The Unnatural Woman. You MUST follow this hilarious Cork mamma on FB or Insta for giggles and positive vibes about body image and parent-shaming. She also busts myths about what proper parents 'should' be doing and puts her hilarious thoughts to music with parodies that will have you in stitches!
