There are a lot of changes that happen to a woman’s body when she is pregnant.
Some women experience weight gain and some develop stretch marks.
Stretch marks are caused when your skin stretches quickly, for example, growth spurts, rapid weight gain and pregnancy.
In the case of pregnancy, some women’s stretch marks might fade naturally on their own after your baby is born.
However, some women struggle to get rid of them completely.
Social media star Kaylah Nicole Jones recently posted a photo of her post-pregnancy body on Instagram.
The photo showed how her tummy had stretch marks and was darker than the rest of her body, which is common for most women.
The image was removed by Instagram as it allegedly went against its community guidelines.
However, Twitter user Erica Love shared the images on Twitter.

Many tweeps shared advice on how to remove the stretch marks and the darkness.
They suggested using shea butter, coconut oil, nzu (African white clay), roots and belly tying.
