Mel recently had a baby, so she was excited to finally book a session with a personal trainer. She wanted to strengthen her body and build endurance.
But Mel was disheartened when her very first exchange with said trainer was less than satisfying.
Mom walked away from the session feeling angry, annoyed and plain ticked-off. It got her thinking about the way new mothers are supposed to look, what society considers an “appropriate” post-baby body, and self-esteem in general. In addition to her story, Mel included a photo of herself standing in front of a mirror in her nursing bra and underwear, for all the world to see.
She had no idea her post would go massively viral, and that women all over the country would show their support by joining her movement.
Keep scrolling to see what the personal trainer said to Mel. She’s one brave and beautiful mama, if you ask me…
