This is what a mother looks like right after giving birth

The photo Lacey Barratt decided to make public is shocking. It captures not only the mother holding the newborn, but also the emotions that accompany a woman right after giving birth.

See the movie: "How does a woman's life change after giving birth?"

Lacey Barratt's face expresses pain and fatigue. It does not show admiration, love. On her social media profile, the woman wrote: "There was no attachment there. It was as if someone had put a baby in my arms. When I look at it, I don't feel any warmth."

And although the photo may be shocking, because the first moments of motherhood are considered particularly sublime, the woman has not been criticized. Her courage was praised in the comments. Young mothers wrote that many of them feel lonely. Photography encouraged them because it showed that they are not alone with their problem.

Lacey Barratt is a mother of five children. All of them have been born in the last five years. Subsequent births left their mark on her. And the woman is not afraid to talk about it either. She admits that when she looks at this photo, she has the impression that she is fit for nothing else but for bearing children.

The woman did not plan to share her emotions with the world at all. She was convinced by the words of a friend who was delighted with photography.
