In a world dominated with headlines about ‘bouncing back’ after having a baby, the pressure on new mums to lose the ‘baby weight’ can be constant and intense.

 

That’s why we love it so much when someone takes a stand against.

 

Today that someone is Anna Strobe.

 

The Australian mum and fitness fanatic has previously made waves on Instagram with her instructional fitness posts – using her adorable twin sons as weights!

 

 

The mum-of-two is a beacon of inspiration to many other mums out there and even more so now after she posted this honest picture of the her post-baby body.

 

“Two pictures taken moments apart,” Anna said in her post which has over 2,500 likes on Instagram.

 

“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.”

 

 

Revealing her tummy, Anna told her 46,000 followers exactly why our bodies are beautiful.

 

“Every day 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!”

 

 

But she had her fears, making the post even more endearing Anna said that she was scared of sharing such on honest insight into her life.

 

“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.”

 

 

We just love Anna’s parting words to all the mums out there, words we think we all need to hear now and then.

 

“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!”
