Instagram is a fun app if you like looking at other people's perfect lives while feeling bad about your own. WOMP WOMP.
One area where Instagram can be especially misleading is in the genre of "post-baby body" pics: those photos of moms who seem to instantaneously "bounce back" into shape after giving birth. These photos can leave new moms feeling inadequate. Which is why some Instagrammers have taken it upon themselves to blow the lid off these seemingly "perfect" photos.
Swedish mommy blogger Sandra Uhrdin is one of these brave Instagram truthers. She recently shared two photos of her own postpartum body, taken two weeks after giving birth, to prove how easily these photos can be manipulated:
THAT BABY IS CUTE AS HELL BTW.
In the caption, she wrote:
It takes time for the body to recover after a pregnancy. It's important to give your body time, no one will be restored overnight ?? My body has given me two healthy boys and I am forever grateful???? 11 days old today!
