La modella Ashley Graham è sempre stata nota per la sua feroce positività corporea, ma proprio come il resto di noi, a volte ha problemi con la propria immagine corporea, soprattutto dopo essere diventata madre. Graham è meglio conosciuto per essere stato il primo modello plus size in assoluto a posare sulla copertina del numero di costumi da bagno di Sports Illustrated nel 2016, secondo Forbes. Tra la sua illustre carriera di essere il volto di diversi marchi, lavorare in passerella e diventare un personaggio televisivo, Graham ha deciso di mettere su famiglia con suo marito, il direttore della fotografia Justin Ervin.

Ashley Graham was dangerously close to dying after giving birth

Just as she had with her firstborn son Isaac, Ashley Graham decided to do a home birth for her second pregnancy with her twins. In an essay she wrote for Glamour, Graham details how she suffered a hemorrhage after giving birth to her sons, which caused her to "[lose] liters of blood" and lose consciousness. Thankfully, her midwives were able to administer Pitocin (a synthetic counterpart to Oxytocin used to induce labor, per Healthline), control the bleeding, and effectively save Graham's life. Graham writes that she was unable to walk for a week after the birth and "didn't leave [her] house for nearly two months."

Graham says that she is recounting this traumatic and scary story publicly so other women won't be scared themselves to discuss what they've gone through. "Like so many women, what I went through with childbirth has reshaped my relationship with my body," Graham noted. "Even as a body advocate, I've learned it's okay if the journey to love the skin you're in is more complex than you could ever have imagined."

Since making a full recovery from her hemorrhage, Graham has returned to modeling and has a new collaboration with the brand Knix on an all-inclusive lingerie line. Even after struggling with accepting her new stretch marks from her pregnancy, Graham continues to be an advocate and an inspiration to women and mothers who have experienced the same things that she has.
