Impending motherhood is a joyous time in a woman’s life, but even the most secure of women dread the near-inevitable occurrence of pregnancy stretch marks.

This is because many women in today’s society feel the pressure to maintain a veneer of perfection at all times. Becoming a mother doesn’t erase that drive; in fact, the pressure to “have it all” and look flawless while you do it can be even more intense.

However, when it comes to preventing stretch marks during pregnancy, which can be as devastating mentally for a woman as any other type of scarring, there is almost a “How can you think about that when you have a baby on the way!” type of mentally that undercuts valid feminine emotions.

A woman doesn’t stop being a woman because she is mother—she is both a woman and a mother—the two are intertwined and if one aspect is not fulfilled, the other aspect flounders. A woman has to be in balance to be effective as a mother.
