Usually I stick to the concept of keeping my Wednesdays entirely wordless. However, this time I need a short paragraph to introduce a project that I am working on called ‘Happy Scars’. I have spoken to so many women who dislike their caesarean section scars- not only because they think that the scars are ugly, but also because many women dislike the reminder of having had a surgical birth. I thought about it for quite a while and decided it would be nice if women could feel better about their scars and what they represent. While looking at myself in the mirror one day, I was messing with my own scar, making it smile and frown. I thought it would be fun to give my scar a smile and a face, which is exactly what my husband did for me one evening. Hopefully it will make some of you smile and maybe help some women view their own scars in a more positive light.
If you would like to participate, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are local, I would love to work with you in person. Otherwise, please just send me your photos.
