Home Health Parents News Now Nearly 1/3 of Moms 'Hate Their Bodies,' Survey Finds Nearly 1/3 of Moms 'Hate Their Bodies,' Survey Finds By Holly Lebowitz Rossi February 13, 2013 Advertisement Save Pin FB More Tweet Email Send Text Message Print shutterstock_76516570 30175 Almost two-thirds of women say they worry their partner doesn't like their body, according to our online, unscientific poll. Two-thirds of moms also say images of Hollywood moms looking super-fit after having a baby make them feel worse about themselves. "We live in a culture of judgment, and a culture that really expects women to be perfect and have perfect bodies no matter what else you have going on in your life," says Michelle Noehren, creator of the CT Working Moms blog and the mom of a toddler who bared her not-so-perfect tummy in a moms' photoshoot that went viral last year. As the heaviest member of the group, she got grateful responses from many women – but she also bore the brunt of nasty criticism. Some days, she's her own worst critic. "I think to myself, 'I still can't fit into any of the clothes that I had before pregnancy'," she said. "Sometimes I just wish I could put those pants on and wear them to work and feel comfortable again. My husband tells me I'm beautiful all the time, but sometimes I worry that I'm not as attractive to him as I used to be."
