We LOVE the note by the scales at this mum’s doctors office

Seriously, we're so glad she shared this...


Today’s uplifting news definitely comes from Mariah Kaitlyn Herrera, a new mum from the US.


When she got weighed at a doctors appointment after welcoming her son Isaiah, she came across a note by the scale which she says completely made her day.

And we can see why! Because it totally changes the way you feel about stepping on them.

It reads:

“This scale will only tell you the numerical value of your gravitational pull. It will not tell you how beautiful you are, how much your friends and family love you, or how amazing you are! From, your nurse ? “

And Mariah added alongside her photo of the note:

“This is the second time I’ve seen this in the doctors office and I LOVE IT. SERIOUSLY these should come with every scale!

“Completly changes how I feel about stepping on the scale? especially becuase I know I’m working on myself. P.S. I’m down 47 pounds since childbirth ??????”

Ugh, doesn’t this note just make your heart swell?

When you’re a new mum, often the last thing you wanna worry about is how much you weigh, or how you don’t weigh what you did pre-pregnancy.

Dealing with the physical, grabbable body changes that new motherhood brings is so often enough to tell the difference without stepping foot on a scale and seeing an unfamiliar number glaring back at you.

So, it’s nice to see this amazing nurse (reveal yourself!) going out of their way to make new mums feel that tiny bit better about the change.

Really nice to see, indeed ?

Have your say
