"What matters is that you raise healthy, strong, independent children, and that you have a great time doing it," said CT Working Moms blogger Sarah Bourne, right, in a video tied to the photo project.

"I'm not proud to admit it, but once I had a kid, I realized that I had been judging other moms," Michelle Noehren, founder of the online community CT Working Moms and mother to a 2-year-old daughter told Yahoo! Shine. It was this realization--which mirrored that of the many other mamas in the group--that led to their latest project, "End the Mommy Wars," a visual plea for loving sisterhood over judge-laden competition. After last year's effort, a post-baby-body photo shoot, went viral, the women decided they needed a powerful follow-up. "We wanted to move from embracing our bodies to embracing our parenting choices," Noehren said. Behold the empowering result.--Beth Greenfield, Yahoo! Shine Staff
