Mom Shamed for Size of Her Bump Gets Brutally Honest about Her Postpartum Experience
Instagram influencer and blogger Hannah Polites was body shamed about her baby bump but she was not having it. The 28-year-old got brutally honest about her postpartum experience and slammed the trolls by sharing an amazing post on her social media.
In her recent post, she revealed how she was body shamed during her pregnancy. Her new post, shared on Instagram on Sunday had a before-and-after picture of Hanna at 38 weeks of Pregnancy and 13 days postpartum.
Her 13-day postpartum picture got a wave of double taps and comments from her followers and most of them were left in awe as they commented how her belly does not look like it housed a human inside it a couple of weeks ago.
“The body is so amazing. Cannot believe how much more I popped with this baby compared to my pregnancy with Evaliah (Her firstborn).” the influencer wrote. “I would get comments everywhere I went about how big I was and “am I sure there’s not two in there?!”
“I’m still not fitting most of my pre-baby clothes so wearing the same things on repeat, just wanted to show you my honest #postpartum,” she added in the same post.
Apart from the 13-day shot, Hannah posted a before-and-after nude post of herself merely 24 hours after giving birth to her son Arlo. The post featured Hannah posing sideways and showing the contrast between her pre-delivery belly and postpartum belly.
“Although a little confronting for me, I want to be as real as possible with you all and share my postpartum body journey exactly how it is. I was tired, pale and a little sore but so proud of what I’d just achieved the day before. ” she wrote. “I’m in no rush to ‘bounce back’ and will just be focusing on my family and new baby, not exercising for at least 6 weeks.”
She also made sure to include how her firstborn Evaliah inquired about her belly button in the caption.
“Evaliah has already asked why mama’s belly button “looks funny” and why my skin on my belly is so soft and she now knows that it’s because my body created a beautiful life and that’s bloody incredible #thankful#postpartumbody #postpartum,” she wrote.
