(ABC/WTNH) -- One group of Connecticut women is showing off their post baby bellies for all to see.
The group says celebrities who get back to their pre-baby weight quickly after baby is really not realistic for most women.
Heidi Klum hit the runway just six weeks after giving birth, while Kourtney Kardashian rocked in a bikini just three months after becoming a mother.
Many women want to get their pre-baby bodies back quickly after giving birth
but one group of moms say the speed celebs get their figures back puts an unrealistic pressure on everyday women.
"We love them all! We're all celebrity worshipers! But at the same time, that's them maybe two months after having a baby, and this (points to self up and down) is a year and four months after having a baby," said Marie Schweitzer.
So instead of scrutinizing photos of themselves, the women of ctworkingmoms.com are embracing their bodies and baring it all, showing the world what "real women's" bodies look like after baby.
"You do an amazing thing by carrying a human being in your bodies and giving birth, we should be proud of our bodies," said the website's creator Michelle Noehren.
Not only were they fearlessly flaunting their figures for the camera, these moms discovered they were on an even bigger mission, with a message for all women.
"If we could reach one woman and get her to maybe not feel so bad about herself, I think that's exactly what we wanted to do," said Katie Schunk.
The shoot brought about an unexpected reaction.
"It was such a release, because trying to balance work and family and home, to actually run around someone's yard half naked was very liberating and fun," said Mary Grace Peak. "It was great to kind of forget that I was a mom just for a minute and just remember who I am as a woman.
"It was the togetherness, and that's what we want to get across to women, get together with your girlfriends and do something like this because you will be changed after you do it, it is so important," said Dena Fleno.
