Lami Phillips shares first post delivery photo, sends powerful words to new moms struggling with their post baby body

The singer who welcomed her second daughter a few weeks ago, shared the photo above on social media this morning and wrote
"So .. here's a no filter: no makeup post delivery picture .. let's be honest .. no matter how many times you give birth.. no matter how many times the doctor tells you that you'll look 6 months pregnant for about 6 months (on average) , nothing prepares you for your post delivery body.
Everyone talks about this mysterious SnapBack but I think that the first three months after the delivery are similar to the first three months of pregnancy. You spend the time trying to regroup.. mind , body and soul. It's a job nobody can help with. Even if you rush on the outward appearance.. your soul still needs to go at it's own pace. I really could slap make up on and throw out some inspiring quote and wear some outfit that's says "IM BACK!" .. but today I'm just hugging all women and saying ... " travel your journey.. at your own pace"  It occurred to me today .. that being myself is my gift. Yes I sing, act.. write etc. but I believe that when I am myself.. I inadvertently give others permission to do the same. I just got tired of The Whole pretense you know.. we all act like we have our ducks in a row . Truth is we are all just trying to be better. Social media is usually utilized as a means to show off.. and put the best package of yourself forward. I just want to be me.. however that comes across and whatever that means. #LamiLIVING ".

Lovely piece, social media putting pressure on those who wants to be pressured. The joy is no longer about motherhood but now about celebrating post body. People should actually take it easy.

I am happy, someone is not making others feel terrible. there is just no magic to it. i know alot of packaging is involved but your body needs to breath and go at its own paste. all those pose body this, anti slim that. please don't let anybody push you o, just take it one step at a time we will all get there but not the same healthy time i beg @ Lami Philips u rock
