This Is What A Post-Baby Body Really Looks Like


“It’s so important to show that this is normal, and that women are incredible and not put even more pressure on ourselves.”


Julie Bhosale, a blogger and nutritionalist in New Zealand, decided to take these photos of herself after the birth of her second son to highlight what a “post-baby body” really looks like.

Feeling pressure for her body to return to its previous state after having a baby, Bhosale said that “my confidence was knocked and I really suffered.”

“After my first son I really struggled with the changes that happened to my body and the pressure I felt to bounce back,” Bhosale told BuzzFeed News. “I thought getting my body back to how it was before would just happen and it didn’t.”

“I thought if I feel like this, with my knowledge of nutrition and how the body works, then imagine what other women must feel like?” she added.

In a blog post accompanying the images, she calls out “a society that pushes images at you of women who have given birth and just ‘bounced back’,” saying that women such as Kate Middleton, although they look amazing, are a “small minority.”
