A father of two has encouraged his wife to take her time getting back to her pre-baby weight.
Brad Kearns, who writes the blog DaDMuM with his wife Sarah, said she should 'take as long as you need to look after yourself.
Brad, who works as a gym manager, says mental health is what's important.
Citing Kim Kardashian and the Duchess of Cambridge as women who rapidly bounced back, he wrote: 'Things are tougher than that in the real world. Find something that makes you feel nice.
'Clothes, candles or a new hairstyle. Nobody who loves you is going to care how long you take. What they will care about is your mental health.'
He said his wife should set her own "bar" for her life. 'It's hard to rest, hard to eat well, hard to even leave the house for some.'
