In a new Instagram post, Neri Naig Miranda gets real about the physical changes she endured during and after her pregnancy. Warts, stretch marks, dark spots, body odor, breast and nipple changes—you name it, she’s struggled with it.
As a busy mom, she says it took her two years to have her facial warts removed. “Iba talaga ang hormones lalo na ‘pag nagbuntis. Ang daming nagbabago sa katawan ng mga nanay. Maraming sakripisyo,” says the entrepreneur who has a two-year-old son, Miguel Alfonso, with Parokya ni Edgar vocalist Chito Miranda.
However, Neri says it’s all worth it. “Lalo na kapag maririnig mo sa anak mo, ‘I love you, Mommy!’ Kakatunaw." A year before Miguel Alfonso was born, Neri suffered a miscarriage, which she recently talked about in an open letter to women who have suffered miscarriages.
Neri says her goal is not to scare other women but to share her pregnancy struggles and learn about the experiences of others. “Kapag nagsasama-sama ang mga nanay at nakakapagkwentuhan tungkol sa pagiging ina, nakakatawa na nakakatuwa kasi halos pare-pareho ang experiences.”
