As women, our bodies undergo a lot of changes during pregnancy and stretch marks are results of the rapid stretching of the skin, which is related to the rapid changes in weight. Statistics shows that 8 out of 10 women get stretch marks on their stomach, thighs and breasts during pregnancy. So why should we be ashamed of something that happens to the the best of us?
