One person who knows a little something about this is mum-of-seven Tess Giddings.5Mum-of-seven Tess Giddings had surgery to remove her appendix scar this month
In an emotional Instagram post, the mum from Bournemouth - whose kids are aged between three and 14 - admitted that she's previously suffered with her body image after having children.
After losing three stone in lockdown, the mum revealed that she went under the knife this month to remove the scar on her stomach from when she had her appendix removed.
Sharing before-and-after images, Tess wrote: "Initially I just wanted my appendix scar gone that was my goal - but I just can’t believe what the amazing Dr Mantas at Nordesthetics Clinic has done for me!

"For those asking why I’m 'showing off' my post surgery body if it was just for a scar removal," she wrote. "If you’ve followed me long enough you’ll see I 'showed off' my 'pre surgery' body too- every 'flaw' stretchmarks, wobbly bits."
Opening up about her body image battle, Tess continued: "I have been on such a journey the last 3 years... I got to a place of not only self acceptance but self love and was totally confident in my own skin for the first time in my life!"
Insisting that the surgery was always about removing her appendix scar, Tess said her new toned stomach is a welcome plus.
She added: "I never thought I’d get a brand new toned stomach and of course I’m going to love that- who wouldn’t?
"I loved my body before and I love my body now- and I still love my wobbly bum, stretchmark covered thighs and saggy boobs too."
"You look amazing either way," one fan said. "You show that body off!!"
"I’d be flaunting it," another added.

Mum begs for help after kids COVER her white wall with multicoloured scribbles but gets shamed for letting it happen
But rather than suggestions on how to clean up the mess, the mum was shamed for letting it happen to begin with.1The kids had completely covered the entire wall with multicoloured scribblesCredit: Facebook
Using colourful pens and crayons, the youngsters used the plain wall as a canvas for their "masterpiece," which the mum admitted made her "chuckle" at first.
But realising cleaning it could actually be a difficult task, she posted a snap on Facebook to ask for help, Mail Online reports.
"I love my kids and I have multiple chuckles every time I walk past their masterpiece, I’m not actually THAT mad."

Aside from a few helpful suggestions, including painting over the wall, it appears many took aim as the light-hearted post offering "parenting advice" instead.
The mum hit back to say: "I didn’t ask for parenting advice or how my eight-year-old should have known better. If you don’t have anything constructive to say, don’t say it."
She also addressed concerns from "negative Nancys" and said: "Just to clear up a common misconception, we do own our home, so no the landlord won’t be p***ed."
The mum also added that they're in the middle of renovating and re-painting the whole house anyway, which is why she isn't too worried about the colourful wall.
Despite some negativity though, the woman did receive some helpful advice.

"I got crayon off our walls yesterday with a magic eraser. Takes a little bit of elbow grease and a little bit if water but did the job," one mum said.
"It could have been worse, it could have been s**t," another mum joked.
While others suggested giving the kids a blackboard wall so they can scribble all they want without damaging the walls.
"Looks like they want an art wall! We did this once my girls drew on the wall, literally just declared that one wall as art space. It was a much loved feature of our home, and I was actually sad to remove it when they were teens," one person reportedly said.
