Before, During, and After Birth

For all the young women looking forward to having kids in the future--don't let this photo freak you out. It's picture of Kate Gosselin, who with her husband Jon, spawned twins and then septuplets (shown here in utero).

The Gosselins star in their own reality tv show, Jon and Kate plus 8, on the Discovery Channel, and in one episode Kate reveals to the cameras her wrinkled, deflated belly. By today's standards, it isn't pretty. Jon expresses mild disgust saying he wishes he could take a paper cutter and slice off the extra flab. Nice Jon. Lucky for Kate, a good samaritan offers to pay for tummy tuck surgery.

At some point in everyone's life, the body sags and becomes tired looking. If your partner finds it ugly, what should you do?


  • Remind your partner that they are far from perfect too.

  • Understand that humans are visual creatures. And while it's not a reason to stop loving someone, it is understandable that someone might become less physically attracted to their mate after a major body event. If everyone were honest with themselves, I think they might find that if their mate were to gain 50lbs we might be less attracted to them, or were to have copious amounts of very loose saggy skin.

  • I had a tummy tuck as well due to the afterwards of having a baby. I also had separation of the muscle. It was the only procedure to take care of this. It's the BeST thing i've ever done for myself & I would do it 10X in a row if i had too!!! I say good for her...she definitely deserved it!!! isn't it nice to be comfortable again??
