New Mom Ashley Graham Gets Honest About Postpartum & Changing Her Own Diapers

Ashley Graham

It’s been three weeks since Ashley Graham welcomed her son Isaac into the world, and like most new moms, her days since giving birth have been filled with feeding, burping, and changing diapers—Isaac’s and her own!

“After all these years in fashion I never could’ve guessed that disposable underwear would be my favorite piece of clothing but here we are!” The 32-year-old supermodel wrote on Instagram.

In a very real post accompanied by a postpartum selfie in her bathroom, Graham opened up by saying she never knew she’d be changing her own diapers, too.

“No one talks about the recovery and healing (yes even the messy parts) new moms go through,” she writes. “I wanted to show you guys that it’s not all rainbows and butterflies!”

In a shoutout to her friends over at Frida Mom, Ashley says it’s honest conversations like the ones this company is starting, that lead to better preparedness for all new moms.

“It’s unbelievable the obstacles we still face talking about what women really go through,” she says, adding that all of the postpartum preparedness tools from Frida Mom have been literal life savers in her postpartum journey.

The company, who is committed to creating labor and recovery must-haves for moms, made waves in the news this week after their all-too real postpartum commercial was cut from the Grammy’s for “indecency.”

“It’s just a new mom, home with her baby and her new body for the first time,” Frida Mom explained. “Yet it was rejected. And we wonder why new moms feel unprepared.”

One thing is for sure—diapers or not, Ashley Graham is still rocking that supermodel bod. Here’s to hoping she brings her Frida Mom postpartum panties to the cover of Sports Illustrated very soon!
