Ashley Graham Shared A Bunch Of Pregnancy Photos From Right Before She Gave Birth To Her Son And Got Candid About The Experience

I definitely did not look this cute while I was in labor.

Ashley Graham has been super candid about her postpartum journey since she welcomed her first child, Isaac Menelik Giovanni Ervin, with her husband Justin Ervin. She’s enlightened some of her followers about the magic of postpartum diapers.

Now, a year after she went into labor with Isaac, she’s sharing a candid look at her final moments of pregnancy. “Tomorrow I will have a ONE year old!,” Ashley wrote on Instagram Stories.

She also shared moments showing what the final stretch was like for her — lots of strawberries were involved.

Ashley also revealed that she “tried acupuncture as a natural way to induce,” but it “was so painful” and “didn’t work.”

She later tried pumping to induce her labor, and got some colostrum out of it, but no contractions.

So she went to her “favorite spa” instead, and had a beautiful meal.

The next day was her last before meeting Isaac.

When she finally went into labor, Ashley went out to grab “breakfast with full contractions happening” — and somehow looked this chill while doing it.

Just “a few hours later,” Isaac came into the world.

“Six hours of wild, full on and the worst pain of my life contractions later,” Ashley wrote, “We met our beautiful son!!!”

It’s hard to believe that it’s already been a year since Isaac was born! Happy birthday, Isaac! We hope your first birthday is magical.
