Before she became pregnant and gave birth, Laura's body was very different from what it looks like now. She didn't have stretch marks or muscle separation, and she was toned and fit looking.

All moms have bad days, yearning for the body they once had.

Laura was missing the way she used to look when she made a comment to her husband about it, and his response is melting hearts and lifting spirits of moms and moms-to-be everywhere.

Laura Mazza was feeling a little down about her post-pregnancy body. 

She said to her husband, "This isn't the body you fell in love with."

He said, "You're right. It isn't the body I fell in love with.

"Instead it's a body that grew our children, it fed our children, it comforted our children, it made life. Your body is the one I fall in love with every day. I didn't know what love was until I saw this body and found out all it could do, so thank you."

A woman's body is capable of creating new life. We can't expect it to do that and not change.

"Do not be ashamed of what you have, or what your mum body looks like, there's plenty of time to give up cake in the future, for now, enjoy the moments you have, and enjoy the fact that you have made something that is worth every stretch mark and every dimple."

"If you needed a reminder, this is it, this body you have now, its worth every bit of love and more."
