Maren Morris believes we put too much pressure on women to “get their body back” after childbirth. It’s a phrase she’s never going to say again, and she hopes other women will follow her lead.
We’ve all heard the cliché about women “trying to get their body back” after childbirth. It’s about as unfair as you can get. They just worked a miracle and their body doesn’t need to BE anything. It is what it is, and it’s beautiful.
Why am I so enlightened? Well, I just saw what Maren Morris wrote on Instagram. She shared a couple of photos of herself, and in one she’s working out.
She wrote, quote, “[I’m] never saying ‘trying to get my body back’ again. No one took it, I didn’t lose it like a set of keys.
“The pressure we put on mothers to ‘snap back’ is insurmountable and deeply troublesome. You are and always were an [effing] badass. And, yeah, I’m proud.”
Maren gave birth to her son Hayes, a little over a year ago. But she’s been sharing photos of herself working out since way before that.
