A 23-year-old mom has urged people to be respectful of women after some called her post-pregnancy stretch marks "ugly."

Doreen Ching, from Malaysia, shared an image of her stretch marks after giving birth to quadruplets recently.

Many young mothers had approached her for suggestions on how to get rid of their stretch marks. She therefore wanted to urge them to embrace the marks as a normal part of pregnancy.
