“How am I going to teach my beautiful little daughter to love her body, if her mum can’t do the same?”

This is the question that changed former body builder Taryn Brumfitt’s perception of her post-pregnancy body. After giving birth to her daughter Taryn’s body changed significantly and caused her self-esteem to fall so significantly that she even considered having cosmetic and plastic surgery.

This inspired Taryn to create a Kickstarter campaign that will found a full length documentary on why women have such a massive amount of difficulty embracing their bodies positively.
