Jennifer Metcalfe celebrates her new mom body while encouraging several new mothers out there! After four weeks of giving birth to her son, she posted her perfect new-mommy body picture on Instagram with a really motivating saying. What was on her mind, certainly gave a boost to many mothers who don’t like their body post pregnancy.
It’s a general trend that celebrities are posting their pre-delivery picture with a baby bump and breaking certain body stereotypes. But, 34 years old Jennifer Metcalfe has taken another step to break the concept of ‘perfect body’ type, post pregnancy.
“I feel it is important that we see unfiltered bodies during pregnancy and after babies are born, and celebrate the new body! I love to see how my body adapted to house a new life and to be honest; it is truly beautiful as well as mind blowing!”
Jennifer stated this in her recent post.
Starting her post in a very positive notion by beautifully addressing her body as a home for her new born baby boy – “Four weeks after my boy vacating his house, this is what I am left with! And this really isn’t that bad.”
The message she is sending to every new mom is great. After every phase of life, there will be certain changes and the body will certainly groom/ adapt accordingly. It is imperative to embrace the change.
As per a study, almost 15% of the women suffer from postpartum depression, which accounts for a huge number of new mothers. Already they are worked up with their body as well as mind, and on top of that, they have the constant pressure of going back to their old self.
Interestingly, Jennifer Metcalfe went candid on her changing breasts and vagina. She said, “My breasts have finally settled. With days of breastfeeding, it swelled up unbelievably. My boobs changed from size B to F, and there were lumps too. Even my nipples grew in size. I was eager to see how these are going to look like. But now, I am more than happy. It’s an awesome feeling; after all, I feed my baby with them!”
Not only this, but she also focused on the common conventional problem of shaving by saying, “I am still very hairy. Please don’t judge if you spot one or ten spider legs! I swear once I can see it, I will work on it. But for now, I have bigger fish to fry.”
So, true. Being a new mom is not only about concentrating on the ‘Big bum’ and ‘Squishy belly’ but also about relishing the feel of welcoming a new phase. Along with posting words of motivation, she also gave a suggestion to new moms who are overthinking about weight gain.
“If you don’t like your new body, there is always gym and diet to start with once you have fully recovered.” – said the awesome new mom.
