12 Women Reveal How They Dealt With The Societal Pressure To Lose Weight After Pregnancy – ScoopWhoop

Women face a whole lot of societal pressure pertaining to their appearances, in general. But the pressure definitely amplifies during and after pregnancy.

Women usually have a ton of opinions thrown at them about what they should look like after giving birth, about how they should lose weight to go back to what they looked before pregnancy. And it's infuriating, honestly. Because, giving birth to a child is no joke!

Biologically speaking,

1. Your hips had to adjust to allow for birth, and to redistribute weight so you don't fall forward when walking.

2. Your organs all shifted to allow for an expanding uterus.

3. Your hair growth changed because of hormones that are there to support the pregnancy.

4. Your bone density has changed.

5. Your breasts started producing milk - thereby changing and possibly creating stretch-marks.

6. Our skin stretched, and often would result in loose skin or stretch marks or both or neither.

And these are just the 1st six changes I could think of. Many of the changes are permanent. You made another human! You are a goddess. Why would you want to go backwards on that?

Losing weight post pregnancy should be all about what you want, and whether your body needs more rest and rejuvenation, not about what others think of you.
