Mom's Post Goes Viral After Woman Approaches Her With Offer At Target

A woman who just had a baby decided to get out a little, so she put her baby in a carrier and headed to Target. As she walked around, her newborn infant cuddled up on her chest, she was approached by another customer. At first the woman seemed to be friendly, but then she handed the young mom something that the mom found offensive. The mom posted her story to Facebook to share her story in hopes of someone else being spared.

Kelly Diane, a mother of three, was browsing in an Indiana Target store with her newborn when she was approached by a woman. The woman first began asking about the baby, but then handed Diane a business card. The woman works for a weight-loss wrap company called 'It Works.'

"Have you heard of It Works before?" the woman asked, according to Diane in a Facebook rant.

"I tell her that I know what it is but I've never utilized it. She proceeds with artificial shock and surprise and gives me her card and her spiel," the mom writes.

"Listen. I'm not upset this company exists. And I'm not even upset at this woman because she could be absolutely charming and just trying to hustle her own living and I have respect for a woman with guts to do that.... But let's not pretend that approaching me specifically was a coincidence. Because it's not like she ran up to every female at Target to hand out her card," Diane continued.

The mom explains that no one is helping new mothers by making them feel even more insecure about their weight. We all know that this culture hammers into postpartum women a lot of physical insecurity about their bodies after delivering their miracles from their wombs," she explains.

Diane calls for people to stop perpetuating the negative body image, the pressure and superficial standards. Instead, focus on the miracle that is bringing a new life into the world.

"My body doesn't need to be wrapped or squeezed or changed. It needs to be valued and revered for the incredible life it just brought into this world. THAT is beauty and THAT is all it needs," she concludes.
