‘A body may seem ‘”back” on the outside but the inside tells a different story. A wound the size of a dinner plate where your placenta once was, slowly healing. 

‘A pelvic floor that needs a bit of a retrain. Any tears or scars healing. Ab separation. Not to mention the hormones, sleep deprivation, emotional scars or trauma. Nobody “bounces back”.

‘Secondly, stop placing this woman’s worth on her f*****g appearance! What, is she worth more because she looked like she never even carried twins? 

‘Or do you question her as a mother because she doesn’t carry the “appearance” of the fourth trimester? “Like how?” Just wish her a happy birthday without commenting on her body?’

Melissa went on to say that Leigh-Anne’s body ‘does not define her’ and said mother’s shouldn’t feel bad about themselves if they feel like they haven’t ‘bounced back’. 

She wrote: ‘Anything you want to say or do or think or feel about a mother- her body doesn’t come into it. Weight gain, weight loss, scars, tiredness, emotional state – this is none of your concern. Her body does not define her. Not as a mother, not as a person.

‘And please remember. We do what we can. And sometimes we don’t even do that much, because it’s exhausting and that’s ok.

‘But without time to ourselves, help, money, whatever it is- please don’t feel badly about yourself if ‘bouncing back’ is not your reality. Just keep on living your life and doing what you do. Please. You’re doing amazingly. ❤️’
