“Weight schmeight”, these are the wise words of blogger The Young Mummy, Sophie Cachia, who has shared an important message for all mums.
Instead of trying to pretend she’s snapped back to her post-baby body, Cachia plans to heal her body before worrying about her weight.
“I'm not going to try to pretend to be one of those girls that 'snaps back'. Not that there's anything wrong with that,” she wrote on Instagram.
She added: “Some women's bodies do in fact magically fling back post-birth and lucky them! Others work really hard to get their body back and yet never really get there. I - and I can only speak for myself - believe in FIXING my body first and foremost before worrying about my weight.”
Following the birth of her daughter Florence Betty Margaret Cachia, the mum who is only four weeks postpartum says she had “a severe case of abdominal separation, a vagina on the verge of prolapsing, and torn upper abdominal muscles.”
"So my focus is on healing & repairing before diving straight into exercise because that ain't going to do nobody any good. Weight-schmeight."
She finished with a reminder for all the ladies out there to follow in her footsteps and "take care of yourself!"
