Honestly, the media is responsible for a lot of the pressure women feel to ‘look’ slim and beautiful – but now they have stooped to a whole new low. Poor Kate – one day after she had delivered her baby (and future heir to the throne), British tabloids and magazines are talking about how she will get her pre-baby body back.
Give the poor woman a break for crying out loud – she’s a very new mum who is experiencing a whole new learning curve with cute little Prince George , yet the media are already putting pressure on her to lose her ‘baby’ weight.
The weight gain that occurs during pregnancy are as a result of two factors: the hormonal fluctuations that take place and an increase in appetite that is a response to the mum’s body wanting extra calories so the baby can develop normally.
However, if an expecting mum makes good choices and undertakes some regular, light exercise during her pregnancy, her weight gain will be minimal and she will find it easier to return to her pre-pregnancy weight.
However, if a new mother literally ‘ate for two’ throughout the duration of her pregnancy and made unhealthy food choices, she may find herself up to 30kg heavier on the birth of her child – EEK!
