Post-Baby To Hard Body In 20 Days?!

Post-Baby To Hard Body In 20 Days?!

I’m glad people are talking about this, because I have been getting annoyed at hearing about how so-and-so was able to lose all of her baby weight 20 days after giving birth like they deserve a gold medal.

Most recently, actress Elizabeth Banks from the Hunger Games addressed this issue, highlighting how ridiculous it is for society to expect women’s bodies to go back to normal just after having a baby.

For instance, Hilary Duff has been called out for her post baby body, but has had the chutzpah to tell critics to back off – and rightfully so. Bringing a child into this world is not easy, and is not without risks to the mother. But when we’re bombarded by airbrushed, idealized images of how women are supposed to look, pregnant and post-pregnancy women just don’t make the cut. How easily we forget the miracles that women’s bodies are capable of. And when we punish women for the effects pregnancy has on their bodies, not only do we devalue women, we also devalue children, seeing them as the source of “ruining” women’s figures.

Proud, unapologetic Hilary Duff on vacation in Mexico.

Time to stop dousing this already slippery slope with more oil…..
