It goes without saying that the pressure new mums feel to ~bounce back~ after giving birth by immediately working on transforming their pregnancy belly into washboard abs is beyond ridiculous.
I don’t even have a baby, but I’m already dreading what the deluge of images of post-birth celebs and Instagram stars will do to my confidence when the time comes.
Now a fitspo mum Revie Jane Schulz has revealed she has been hung up over the “loose skin” on her post-pregnancy bod.
The Gold Coast crossfit trainer, who counts 112k Instagram followers, uploaded a post two weeks ago detailing how self-conscious she has been. The transformation image shows compares her pregnancy belly with her tum six weeks after giving birth. She looks a-m-a-z-i-n-g. But she still felt downhearted by her physique.
She described being a mother as her “greatest accomplishment” and said her daughter Lexington was her “biggest blessing in life”. But she explained her journey had not been without difficulty, particularly given her career in fitness.
She said despite assuring herself to just “give it time”, she continued to battle feelings of shock and despair.
