The pregnant body is amazing – creative, life giving and utterly beautiful. It’s something to be celebrated with gorgeous maternity clothes, not covered up & hidden.
This week the chief weather presenter on US TV show Global BC News, Kristi Gordon spoke up about the hate mail she’s received through both of her pregnancies from people criticizing her maternity fashion choices.
Kristi explains the situation
Kristi is a successful, confident & beautiful woman, who dresses her bump in style… and we’re not the only ones who think so! Since she exposed the haters on air, support has been streaming in for Kristi, praising her bravery for speaking out & her beautiful baby bump – her twitter feed is crowded with encouraging messages from friends, strangers, fellow TV presenters and expectant mamas everywhere.
