Is it teething time for your little one?

 

It doesn’t matter what shape or size we are, the majority of us can admit to feeling a little insecure when we take a look at postpartum figures.

 

One woman who wants us to be a little nicer to, and more patient with ourselves is fitness blogger and mum Revie Jane Schulz, who has come in for major praise online this week.

 

The Australian mother previously came in for criticism, for sharing a video of herself lifting weights six months into her pregnancy, but she has a gentle message to send out to new mums everywhere.

 

 

This photo makes me realize 2 things- {1} the female body is seriously amazeballs and {2} Damn! I got some good wear out of these togsThese 3 photographs taken at 21 weeks, 37 weeks and baby girl Lexington is 5 months old. I STILL cant believe I grew a human, the sweetest little human I could have ever dreamed up- Baked for 41 weeks and 3 days right there in my belly. I remember just after having Lex I still looked about 6 months pregnantit was such a shock. Despite trying to convince myself that it will go back down, inside I believed my tummy would stay that way forever. It took a good 3 months for my pouch to start shrinking again. But it does shrink back down, I promise. In hindsight, yes, a bit of patience would have come in handybut that has never been my strong suit. For a trip down memory lane,#reviejanesbump

Revie has moved to comfort mums who are feeling self-conscious about their postpartum bodies, urging them to be kind to themselves.

 

She illustrated her point by sharing a split-photo of herself at 21 and 37 weeks pregnant, and then holding her five-month-old daughter, Lex.

 

Recalling her own experience after giving birth, Revie wrote: “I remember just after having Lex I still looked about six months pregnant. It was such a shock.”

“Despite trying to convince myself that it will go back down, inside I believed my tummy would stay that way forever. It took a good three months for my pouch to start shrinking again. But it does shrink back down, I promise,” she added.

 

Revie’s words clearly struck a chord with her army of followers, with many praising her for renewing their hope about their own postpartum bodies.

 

It’s so important to encourage each other.
