Honestly, all I’m thinking today is that if the Duchess of Cambridge can pop out a baby and be seen a few hours later in heels and a blow out, then I should be able to get my sweatpants wearing butt to the grocery store. #royalbaby #KateMiddleton

Some thought it was too much pressure on the Duchess and even felt sorry for her.
Is it just me who feels sorry for #katemiddleton ? When you’ve just had a baby, the last thing you want to do is be dressed and outside standing for ages. I’d prefer to let my vagina recuperate with my feet up!! #RoyalBaby

Kind of ridiculous that #KateMiddleton is expected to look perfect, walk upright, and present her baby to the world 3 hours after giving birth.

Poor Kate Middleton.
Only a few hrs after giving birth she’s gotta get made up, put on her mesh panties, and go out front to present her newborn.
It’s like Lion King meets real life. #Royal #royal baby #KateMiddleton

Michelle Kennedy, founder of an app called Peanut, that connects like-minded mothers told Yahoo Style UK that people should consider the “pressures” the Duchess must feel in the public eye to be perfect. “While we all feel pressured by to ‘bounce’ back after birth, because this is what the media seems to tell us, the reality is somewhat different. Imagine then the pressures on the Duchess of Cambridge to appear to the world’s media,” she continued. “No woman expects that this is their reality; this is the reality of a woman who, with the support of a team, has certain obligations.”
Midddleton inspired other mothers to share their own less-than-perfect post-delivery pictures.
🖤EXPECTATION ON NEW MUMS🖤 This was me – AFTER giving birth! On my blog – is society putting too much pressure on new mums? How did you look when YOU left hospital? What “expectations” are you currently living under that you could actually live without? Link in bio. Thanks for the nudge @natashabailie (be sure to follow her!) 🖤

This is a picture of me that I took a few hours after giving birth to my third child, a boy. I’m posting it because of the slew of “here’s a picture of me after giving birth” pictures that popped up across Instagram last night (and this is not a barb at anyone), but these pictures got me thinking. Without waiting to sound like a nob, I (think I) look incredible in this picture, you would never of known I’d just pushed another baby out my foof a few hours ago. I wish I looked like that now. I don’t, said baby has sucked all my youthful glow. After a late night birth I was on my feet and made up that morning, to go to my sisters wedding. I’m not superhero, I am a woman. I often say with hindsight I wish I hadn’t done it. That I destroyed my own newborn bubble before the adrenalin had even worn off. But at the same time I wouldn’t of missed my sisters wedding for the world, even though she would never of expected me to be there. After my first birth, I remember dragging myself by my hands across the hospital floor to get to the shower because I couldn’t feel my legs. I was wheeled in a wheelchair to a bed on the ward, battered, bleeding and traumatised. With my second birth I didn’t even have time to get undressed, let alone get a hair out of place. After my third I was so so exhausted I sat in a puddle of my own piss for so long my feet went wrinkly. Nico was so quick and easy I didn’t need to get back on my feet, as I never got off them (continued in comments…)
