Stretch Marks, as many as 9 out of 10 pregnant women have them and you probably will if your mum does, While most of us fear and shun the topic, some enlightened mummies wear them proudly as a "red badge of motherhood." Yep, they are pregnancy stretch marks caused by tiny tears in the supporting layers of tissue under the skin pulled, at the tightest to accommodate a growing baby. These marks start out as pink, red or sometimes purplish streaks and you'll most probably notice them across your belly, butt, thighs, hips, and breasts.
Did you know?
For those mummies like myself, who prefer not to wear the badge of honor, help is here.
