From the outside, you’d be forgiven for thinking Studio 10 presenter Sarah Harris has juggled her recent pregnancy, career and new motherhood with total ease.
But Harris, 34, has opened up in a new interview about the challenges she’s faced as both a pregnant woman and new mum with a high-profile career — and her struggle with body-shamers is something no woman should have to deal with.
“When I was pregnant and the body shamers came out, some of the stuff I got hit with on Twitter… it was awful and really tough,” Harris told Jonathon Moran of The Daily Telegraph in an interview.
“When you’re hormonal and you’re getting up at stupid o’clock in the morning for work, it can really wear you down and there are times where you wonder if it’s worth putting yourself out there and having an opinion.”

Harris, 34, said she’s now learned to block out the nasty comments of strangers– with the help of friend and colleague Jessica Rowe.
“We work in a job where you put yourself out there to be judged every day and if you let yourself listen to your critics and only focus on that, it can really get you down so you have to block that crap out,” she added.
