Pregnant Ballerina Embraces Baby Bump In Series Of Beautiful Photos
Not many pregnant women would describe themselves as "graceful," as their bellies blossom out. A friend of mine whispered to me in class one year, "Okay, hear me out--I am totally on board with pregnancy and birth being miracles, but honestly? Sometimes all this feels like is a hostile, gassy take-over of my body." --Proof that pregancy doesn't rob women of their sense of humor either.
It also doesn't rob them of their beauty, as is evidenced by Mary Helen Bowers, the ballerina you see in the photo. The New York based dancer and founder of the Ballet Beautiful fitness company, hasn't stopped dancing throughout her entire pregnancy. With Instagram, she's documented the whole thing with a series of gorgeous photos.
