Could you ever think that exactly one photo is enough to show the true picture of motherhood in a modern world? As it turns out, it is more than possible.

Recently, Amanda Bacon from North Carolina, USA, posted a photo on Facebook that shows her fiancé, Ken Hardy, holding their newborn son. However, in the background, the camera also caught the mother herself, standing naked in the “giant diaper.”

Amanda called this photo "Motherhood Uncensored" and explained why she posted it on the web.

I’m sharing this picture because it’s real. This is motherhood; it’s raw, stunning, messy, and freaking hilarious all rolled into one. Having a baby is a beautiful experience, and the realities of postpartum life aren’t spoken enough about. And definitely not photographed enough. Some people probably find this uncomfortable, but why? I seriously don’t get it! It's probably because this part isn’t talked about. We all should try and educate, empower and embrace every aspect of childbirth, including moments like this. And do it while having a sense of humor. Nothing says welcome to motherhood like an adorable squishy baby, and a giant mom diaper.

Edit. I posted this picture. Not my husband.

Maternity is far from a vacation, which leaves everyone happy and contented. It isn’t endless smiles, careless time-spending, tearless nights, and ailment-free. Being a mother is incredibly difficult, yet at the same time priceless. Amanda was able – through only one photo – to prove how hard motherhood can be. However, this is no cause for disappointment. There's always a place for a cheerful mood and a bit of laughter! Remember, happy mother equals happy baby!
