We are inundated with pictures of celebrity mums 'stepping out looking fabulous just three weeks after giving birth'!

We have images of perfect post-baby women in all their air-brushed glory shoved in our faces every day! So WE are making a stand.

The media may think that all new mothers are obsessed with getting back into their 'skinny jeans' as soon as physically possible, but the truth is we do not give a damn!

With a newborn to look after, it is more likely we'll be trying not to lose our minds than trying to lose weight and we barely have time to get a shower let alone apply make up and straighten our hair.

When I had my first baby I was too tired to 'step out' anywhere and I certainly did not have the energy to wriggle my post-baby arse into a pair of tight trousers.

There is so much pressure to be the perfect parent. The last thing first time mums need is pressure to be pretty as well. So, we say it is about time we kept it real.

Let's show the world that motherhood is beautiful no matter what we wear or weigh!

Strong is the new pretty. Not giving a shit is the new beauty. Eye bags are the new black.
