‘Too graphic’: This ad on postpartum realities was rejected from the Oscars

Mums know ALL too well just how challenging it can be after giving birth – and we’re NOT talking about waiting for our breastmilk to kick in or meeting the demands of a newborn.

We’re talking about having that first after-birth poo, dealing with perineal tearing and wearing those huge nappy-like pads after giving birth. So, why does no-one ever really talk about it?

Well, a company called Frida Mom, which specialises in postpartum products for both mums and babies, launched a new ad highlighting the realities mums face postpartum.

But sadly it was rejected from airing during the Academy Awards because it was deemed ‘too graphic’.
