Mom's Selfie Hours After Giving Birth Is the Most Honest Picture You'll Ever See

Erica Andrews posted a picture of herself a mere 24 hours after giving birth to her youngest on Facebook, and the response was astounding. Moms everywhere were applauding the Ohio mom of five for portraying what a woman's body really looks like right after giving birth—something that's harder than running a marathon, FYI—and the striking picture has since garnered more than 131,000 likes and 35,000 shares.

In the black-and-white snap, Andrews is breastfeeding her baby in a sling, topless, hair disheveled, adult diaper-clad and looking every inch the glorious and proud mama bear she is. She captioned the photo, "This is what 24 hours postpartum looks like. Baby in sling. Skin to skin. Adult diapers. And a rosy glow."
