Fitness Influencer Anna Victoria is celebrating her postpartum body with Instagram fans and her fans are loving it. The new mama recently shared a photo of her stomach at three months postpartum.
“The number of women who replied to these [photos] on my Insta stories and said these pictures made them cry is astonishing,” Anna Victoria wrote on Instagram. “They said they never see ‘influencers’ being real about their postpartum bodies and instead, they just see those who have bounced back.”
Fitness Influencer Anna Victoria Talks Postpartum Body
While social media is typically flooded with “perfect” images of women, the fitness guru is keeping things real. “So you can revisit this on a day when you might need it,” she said. “Read through the comments of all the women saying “me too” so you know you’re not alone❤️ but most importantly… that your postpartum body is nothing to be ashamed of.”
Victoria gave birth to daughter Aurora Vittoria in August and is proud of her stretch marks. “I’m so much more at ease with my tummy now than I did pre-pregnancy because I have a damn good reason to have this tummy and these stretch marks.”
“For those asking what I’m going to do about my stretch marks. Um.. nothing? Why should I?” she asked. “Society has told us women for too long that there’s a product for every ‘problem,’ but I don’t see them as a problem soooo… I’ll save my $$ AND my sanity. Decide what you give power to.”
Thank you to this mama for celebrating what her body has accomplished and encouraging other women to do so too.
