Brooklyn stood in front of the mirror wearing a black nursing bra with a belly binder wrapped around her stomach.

‘This was me 6 years ago. 1 week after I gave birth to my son. So much blood. So much bruising. Pads and wipes and mesh underwear galore. I was a zombie,’ she wrote. 

‘It was a shocking experience and not at all unusual.. the reason it was so shocking is simply because I wasn’t prepared.’

‘So I started making homemade kits for my girlfriends listing out all the gory details. THEN I met the founder of @itsbodily and realized THEY were making recovery kits, only much better, much cleaner, and with research-backed ingredients and a ton of education,’ she wrote. 

‘October is pregnancy loss awareness month, and to honor that, @itsbodily is moving into education and tools to support women experiencing pregnancy loss. I can’t help but to think we’ll all be better off if we share our stories and destigmatize these completely normal experiences.

Brooklyn added: ‘And yes, I also have on acne medicine because why not do the full shebang.’

Andy and Brooklyn began dating in 2007 and were engaged a year later. They married on April 17, 2009.
