In recent new mom news, fitness blogger Caroline Berg Eriksen’s baby belly backlash has been on top.
The first time mom and wife of soccer player Lars Kristian Eriksen posted a photo on her Instagram feed this week which shows her impressively fit figure. The photo is just 4 days after giving birth to her baby girl Nelia.
Being that Caroline has an extensive following on her popular Norwegian blog, just minutes after posting the racy selfie photograph – a web phenomenon made the photo go viral. Thats when the backlash began.
There has been a mix of foes and supporters. Some believe that Caroline is causing an unrealistic image for women in posting such a photo. Then there are those who believe she is a true inspiration. They believe she shouldn’t be vilified for being healthy and fit before, during and after her pregnancy.
The Bellefit Effect
As we have seen, Caroline Berg Eriksen’s post-pregnancy results are not common but possible!
Women’s bodies are built to bounce back from pregnancy and childbirth. The reality is that it can be difficult for such postpartum body changes to happen quickly without help.
- During pregnancy the body secretes hormones such as estrogen, progesterone and relaxin. They remain in the body after childbirth for approximately six months.
- These hormones are our body’s way of loosening the abdominal muscles. They facilitate the stretching of the abdominal area by as much as 50%, while the baby grows.
- They also act to loosen the pelvic structure, joints and ligaments to prepare for childbirth.
The beauty behind Bellefit ® medical-grade postpartum support garments is that they provide a greater stability for the body after delivery.
- The compression garments work by drawing in stretched muscles to provide a 360° support structure around the torso. Reducing strain on ligaments and joints in the lower back, pelvis, and buttocks.
Reducing stress in these areas enhances your body’s ability to return to its pre-pregnancy alignment, shape and loosen the post baby tummy faster. As shifted and constrained organs return to their pre-pregnancy locations during the first few weeks after c-section or natural childbirth. Bellefit ® girdles hold you in place allowing for movement with greater confidence.
A Bellefit ® postpartum garment is an essential part of a comprehensive postpartum care and c-section recovery plan for both health and confidence.
