In two photos, this Aussie mum has shown the truth about the 'post-baby body'.

Now you see it. Now you don’t.

Personal trainer and Melbourne mum Anna Strode has shown us that no two post-baby bodies are the same in two photos taken just moments apart.

Strode who often marvels followers with her fit physique shared a side of her body usually hidden from the spotlight.

“The pic on the right is one that might resemble what you see as you scroll your Instagram feed each day,” she said.

Strode said the one on the left would be closer to those “you think you could never possibly share with the world.”

2 pictures taken moments apart. The pic on the right is one that might resemble what you see as you scroll your Instagram feed each day. The pic on the right probably reminds you of the ones you think you could never possibly share with the world. Polar opposites ~ but guess what, I’ve decided that both pictures MAKE ME PROUD. Everyday we are surrounded by images that are supposed to represent ‘perfection’ but why can’t the pic on the left represent perfection too?! The pic on the left represents what my body is capable of ~ growing 2 babies, yes! Little humans that have come into the world and made me the happiest mumma in the whole wide world! It’s not easy for me to do this, I promise you as I post this I am no joke absolutely shit*ing myself but the reason I’m doing this is to show you we’re ALL REAL! We all have things we wish we could change, it’s easy to get caught up in the perfect world of social media but DON’T! Because behind every image is someone that has things they wish they could change too. Be proud, be kind, love your body for what it has done. Stretch marks, loose skin, bellies and saggy boobs – embrace it mummas because you are BEAUTIFUL ????????????

The fitness professional argued both sides of her body should be regarded as perfect as both demonstrate the reality of a post-childbirth body.

“Everyday we are surrounded by images that are supposed to represent ‘perfection’ but why can’t the pic on the left represent perfection too?”

“The pic on the left represents what my body is capable of ~ growing two babies, yes!”

The images have received a hugely positive response from followers who applaud the mother for her encouraging message.

“Beautiful inside and out Anna! You are so inspiring and I love reading your posts each day!” One user said.

“Either picture is beautiful. That tummy grew your babies and that in itself is beautiful, and those muscles are spot on too!” Another user said.

One follower said she was strongly encouraged by the image as she too often struggled with their post-baby body.

“l’m embarrassed of my belly everyday after giving birth my kids. You are true and you give us strength!” They said.

The post has received almost 3000 likes since it was posted yesterday and only continues to grow in popularity.
