Model mum embraces stretch marks to inspire others
A determined mother has launched an online campaign to inspire women to embrace their stretch marks.
Striving to be a swimsuit model all her life, Talmesha Jones, from San Antonio, Texas, struggled to accept her post-baby stretch marks when she gave birth to her only son, Chase, five years ago.
Talmesha's confidence was at an all-time low – often receiving abuse online, she would refuse to look at herself in the mirror.
But when best friend, Johnathan Benton, convinced her to take part in a photo-shoot for the first time since giving birth, Talmesha decided enough was enough and that her stretch marks actually made her unique and special.
