“I’m not sharing this photo for words of praise on how much weight I’ve lost,” writes One Chick and a Yorkie’s Danita (translated from Maltese), alongside a before and after shot of her belly during and post-pregnancy.
“While I’m still not comfortable in my body and I still have a lot of work to do to get my pre-baby body back, if I can get it back, I want to share this photo to encourage those pregnant ladies who are feeling bad about themselves,” she continues.
“I know how you feel – pregnancy is a beautiful thing, but brings about a lot of emotions too, including negative thoughts and questions about what will happen to you and your body,” she writes, appealing to girls to relax and have faith that everything will fall into place.
“If you work on and take care of your body after the birth, you will lose the weight you gained. I still have a way to go and I don’t always have the will power, but I know what I’m saying!”
The inspirational baby mama closes her post by assuring mummies-to-be that their new baby will change their life, and will be the most precious thing to them, even if they don’t realise it right away – “you will definitely feel it in the future!”
Way to go for the words of encouragement Danita – motherhood is a beautiful thing!
