That's what Natalie McCain does. The photographer wants to encourage pregnant women to love their bodies the way they are. Most reactions are effusive - people worldwide are cheering on the honest campaign in the era of body shaming. But this is precisely what falls victim to Brittany Anne Dykstra. Because in her case, the project backfires. The pregnant woman is bullied for her honest photos.

Who is behind the bad comments, is incredible. Because not something strangers insult Brittany. As she proudly posts the results of the shoot on her private Facebook profile, it is her own friends and family members complaining about the photos!

"I'm 35 weeks pregnant and just last week.

Instead of support, the pregnant woman receives incredible comments about how huge she is and how difficult her baby would be in terms of her appearance. The hateful expressions of people she proudly wanted to show her pictures hurt Brittany. She can not believe being bullied by her own friends for the candid photos.

Even the photographer McCain can not believe what Brittany had to go through after her shoot. So everything turns out well for the better: She posts the story of the courageous woman on her side.

Sometimes the world seems to be upside down when friends turn their backs and strangers take over their jobs. But new companions are already waiting at the next corner, as Brittany was happily allowed to experience.
