Every woman is unique n beautiful in her own way, no one has the right to judge her n pass a badly commenting. but in our own society so many people r there to counter her with her looks n body shaming after pregnancy, also they know very well about it but even though they do these typical things , As the elders say in our days we r such like this or we didn't do like this or that bla bla bla , every women's energy level is different, every women's body is different to b fit, into the time taking it, 🤷‍♀️ so how can anyone will say such things to a new mom who is in depressed situation after delivering a baby with so many tasks, pain. Instead of passing comments try to understand her bcoz with the delivering a baby not only it's new world to her baby also for a new mom's that her world changes totally like second life she is again entered, #RESPECT EVERY WOMAN IN ALL HER SITUATIONS SHE IS WHOLE WORLD WHO IS MAKING A NEW WORLD BY GIVING BIRTH TO THE THERE PRECIOUS GEMS#.

It's actually disheartening to see women disgracing and taunting other women who've gained weight post pregnancy. This sickening attitude needs to be changed as we all know that during those nine months, we undergo a lot many physical, mental and emotional changes which are all correlated. If women started just looking at the physical aspect of the body, then we won't have 'mothers' anymore!
Accepting the process of change is a bold step; it doesn't matter if you've gained or lost weight during pregnancy, you just need to be fit and fine to take on the challenges of motherhood. So, just let's be humane and uplift each other.

pregnency causes a great physical and emotional change,so be happy as you are since your happiness matters alot for your childs's emotional development and dont bother about others saying love the way you are.

Not all mothers have the luxury to hire a nanny and run off to the gym. Some mothers even struggle having to take a bath with the baby wailing. During such times, fit or fat is not a concern but tking care of the baby is. As such, I believe what is important is that new moms manage to get through this phase without pressure of having to look fit or bounce back to pre-pregnancy days. Looking after a new born and taking care of it is more than all the accolades rather than looking slim or fit.
and it gets tougher when you are a working women too doing 9-5 job.

mommies should feel proud and confident with themselves... why should one needs to be physically fit after undergoing such changes in her body... post partum women shouldn't have any inferior feelings that they are not suitable and fit in the society anymore because of their figure and weight.. instead we should feel blessed and thankful to our own body since it can carry a soul upto nine months. The ones who stated that post partum women should be fit enough to be acceptable in the society, believe me, may be they cannot reproduce themselves...otherwise we are supposed to be happy with the way we are.

it's my 9th month and I went for another doctor consultation who will be there at the time of delivery and right from 1st meeting she is scolding and yelling at me saying you are fat you are obese needs to control and I was like I am afraid a lot and she doesn't knw me my condition and how can I control my weight now what is expecting from me at this stage where she needs to give me support .she's giving me negativity bt due to my inlaws and husband I have to bear her .
You are paying that doctor for consultation. So don't let her bully you or scold you. She can suggest in a helpful way. Tell your family and husband that you are not able to relate to her. Your life and post-partum health depends on her. If she's gonna blame your weight, she is sure going to use it if anything goes wrong from her. No one should feel scared for a service they are paying for.

It's natural to weight gain post pregnancy and it takes time to reduce . Commenting on physical looks are shame
