This Woman Has A Powerful Message About Post-Baby Bodies

July 21, 2015 1 min read

Blogger and mother of two, Julie Bhosale, wants new moms everywhere to know something about losing their baby weight.

With the media covering stories of women who are sporting flat, fab abs just days after giving birth, there is an overwhelming pressure looming on new moms who feel they need to be focused on their self-image too. But Julie wants to dispel the myth that every mom can easily "bounce back" from pregnancy.

“You live in a society that pushes images at you every day of women who have given birth and just ‘bounced back’ – great for them (truly, that is great, Kate Middleton you are amazing!) But this is such a small minority,” the New Zealand mom explains.

Julie admits to feeling a drop in confidence after having her first child, mostly because of media standards for the ideal post baby body.

She decided to make a difference for other new moms when she became pregnant with her second baby. Julie documented her baby belly in a series of photos, from the end of her pregnancy to 14 weeks after giving birth. Her brave and honest photos show the reality of pregnancy for most women, and that it is okay not to look like a fitness model right out of the delivery room.

"Nourish and love from the inside out and do not forget: You are beautiful, you are amazing, you are a mother.” Julie writes to her readers. What are your thoughts on the media's obsession with super fit post baby bodies?
