Ashley Graham Shares Powerful Photo Of Herself Mid-Birth
Ashley Graham has shared a powerful photo of herself mid-labour to celebrate women's strength on International Women's Day.
The supermodel, 32, who gave birth to her son Isaac with her husband Justin Ervin in January, shared the breathtaking photo on her Instagram.
Shared with her 10.6 million followers, the image depicts Ashley screaming in the throes of pain during her labour.
"This is the face of my greatest strength. The greatest pain I've ever known and the greatest accomplishment that I've ever achieved," she wrote.
"On this International Women's Day understand that despite whatever pain or trial we have all experienced as women, we are also strong, powerful and capable of accomplishing greatness."
The Revlon ambassador is a proud advocate for women, frequently sharing inspiring posts on body image.
Graham finished by saying: "Happy International Women's Day! Let's all celebrate our, and each other's strengths today."
Fellow models and celebrity friends were quick to sing their praises of the new mum.
"Love this so much," wrote Christy Turlington. "Such powers we possess such strength," added Helena Christensen.
"This pic made me cry," Amy Schumer said. "Wow! Captured so beautifully," said model Jada Sezer.
More used to seeing supermodels draped in couture rather than crying out in pain, the image makes for powerful viewing and highlights an important message: women are badass.
We love you for this, Ashley.
