The Healthy Beauty Pledge for Mothers and Mothers-to-Be

As women, as mothers, and as mothers-to-be, we are starting a healthy beauty revolution. Join us by signing the pledge and passing it on!

I promise to...

  • Acknowledge that there is no such thing as the "perfect" body—or the "perfect" mommy.
  • Never define my self-worth according to the number on the scale or the size of my clothes.
  • Make decisions that are right for me. They don't have to be right for everyone else.
  • Take care of myself and take time for myself, even if some days I can only manage one-minute increments.
  • Work on developing a relationship with food that is about health, nourishment and enjoyment, not deprivation, indulging and punishment.
  • Stop all body-bashing talk with my friends, my colleagues, my partner, my family, and myself.
  • Ask for help when I need it. I'll make a phone call, write an email or send a text—whatever it takes to reach out for support.
  • Separate the re-touched, made-up beauty fantasies in the media from what matters most to me in reality.
  • Give up the mission to get my "pre-baby body" back and start focusing my energy on moving forward in my new life.
  • Remember that, one person at a time, healthy beauty is a revolution—for ourselves and for our children.
