Many new moms are frustrated when they see celebrities looking slim within days of giving birth, but Kate Middleton’s decision to proudly show her post-baby bump offers encouragement for women everywhere. Her decision is helping to eliminate the common misconception that the female body returns to its original state immediately after giving birth. In reality, it takes two or three weeks for a woman’s uterus to return to normal.

Siobhan Freegard, founder of British Netmums, explains, “In a couple of minutes on the steps of the Lindo Wing, Kate has done more for new mums’ self-esteem than any other role model. Sadly too many celebrities often have ultra fast tummy tucks or strap themselves down to emerge in tiny size 6 jeans, leaving everyone else feeling inadequate. Kate shows that a real mum looks like- and natural is beautiful.” Kate’s bold move reassures new moms that getting back into shape after having a baby doesn’t normally happen overnight.
