Lindsey is from Florida and has worked in online and print media. Her happy place is Michaels craft store.

Emily Frigo has four wonderful children. But their births didn’t come easily. Over the past decade, the mom has had 10 total pregnancies, six of which resulted in miscarriages.

“It was so difficult to find self-love when I felt like my body was failing me,” Emily tells LittleThings. “I suffered so much loss and blamed it on my body.”

Emily took to her Instagram to share an intimate photo of what her body looks like after those 10 pregnancies. Instead of finding flaws or thinking she doesn’t look perfect, Emily is proud of her body. She captioned her photo:

“Shaved head. Stretch mark stomach. Deflated breasts. Thighs that touch. Society does not defy [sic] me. My inner self does.”

Emily also hopes her candidness will help other women cope with how their bodies change.

I hope that through the image, it can help other post-baby mothers feel more confident with themselves,” she told LittleThings.

The mom is now also helping other parents with bereavement support, in hopes that her experience can be of aid to others.

Emily Frigo is a birth photographer and doula. But most importantly, she is a mom to four amazing kids.

Emily is a proud mama to four healthy kids, but she’s also experienced six miscarriages.

After 1o pregnancies, her body has been through its ups and downs, and Emily wanted to show off how they affected her body.

While wearing clothes, the mom looks “normal.” But underneath, she reveals her postpartum body.

“It took years, many many years, to get where I am,” she told LittleThings about being proud of her body.

Emily uploaded this photo to her Instagram page to help give other mothers confidence.

I hope that through the image, it can help other post-baby mothers feel more confident with themselves,” she told LittleThings.

She captioned the photo:

In my womb, I’ve grown 10 babies. Only four were born alive, but how f*cking miraculous nonetheless. And I’ve never loved myself more. I’ve never felt more feminine. Shaved head. Stretch mark stomach. Deflated breasts. Thighs that touch. Society does not defy me. My inner self does.

This mom was so thankful for Emily’s photo after struggling with how her body looks after three kids.

Another user simply called Emily her hero for her photo.

Emily gave birth to her fourth child a year ago in July, with a water birth. According to her Facebook, it’s been 10 years since she lost her first baby.

Her pregnancies didn’t come easily though. She almost lost her son, Clay, in 2014, when he was 6 weeks old. Thankfully, things worked out.

“I gave birth to a beautiful baby after suffering with five miscarriages and infertility,” she wrote on Instagram.

Emily now uses her own life experiences to help others. Her website, Wise Wild Well, offers bereavement support as well as doula support.

“I now offer support for bereaved families, called Love + Light, and take pride that my story — surrounding so much infant and pregnancy loss — can now touch other families,” she told LittleThings.

Emily feels so blessed to be the mother of four healthy kids. She is proud of what her body looks like after all of her pregnancies.
