Grace Elizabeth opens up about pressure as a model and new moms
After getting criticism over an image she proudly posted of her toned postpartum physique, Grace Elizabeth is addressing the double-edged sword surrounding new moms and their post-baby bodies. In her post, the 24-year-old explained the ups and downs that come with trying to get back into her fitness routine, safely, while also juggling a newborn and a career that’s based on her image. “You have to understand I’ve spent the last 6 years of my life trying to be in the best physical condition possible, I didn’t take rest days, I didn’t let myself go because I was/ am judged based on my looks. That’s how I make a living. So to go from being able to run 5 miles without stopping to barely being able to talk while walking one hurt my ego.” In her post, she added: “No new mothers should feel pressured to return to their pre pregnant body, mine isn’t the same and never will be and that’s fine! Raising your child, is a job enough. Be kind to yourself, you’ve done something incredible. It’s easy to be caught up in the chaos of having a new baby, and constantly being worried.”
