Recovering from birth is not an easy task. Bodies change so much in the nine months leading up to labour, so it can be hard to feel like your old self right away. Post-partum recovery can be made even more difficult if you compare yourself to celebrities who are right back at the top of their game almost immediately after giving birth. It can seem like celebrities have a magic portion to recover fast, but the reality is that they have to take small steps too. Today we’re sharing some of those small steps, so you can recover from birth like a celebrity! 💁♀️
Dress for your body
When recovering from birth, it’s important to dress for how your body is and how you feel in the moment. Celebrity new moms always look stylish and comfy. Look for clothes that suit your style, but still are comfortable and let you feel confident. Don’t feel bad if your favourite skinny jeans feel too tight, after all, you just had a human inside of you!

Eat balanced meals
Nutrition is important to celebrities and with good reason. A nutritious and balanced diet is key to good health! While you’re recovering from labour try and stick to whole grains, lots of veggies, and a variety of protein sources. You should try as much as you can to avoid eating too many sweets or other junk food. Not only will you feel energized, but you’ll also find yourself shedding your pregnancy pounds as fast as the celebs do!
Take me time
Even with their busy schedules, celebs always make sure to take time for themselves! Especially as a new mom, it’s important to make sure that you don’t lose site of your own interests and passions outside of your family. Setting aside 10 minutes a day for meditation can be a huge de-stresser and help you to feel more like yourself again!
Use your support system
Sure, celebrities often have a huge support system, with countless nannies, trainers, and housekeepers, but even just a few friends or family members can make a huge difference. When friends or family offer to lend a hand, take them up on it! Whether it be for meals, childcare, or general help around the house, don’t be shy to say yes! And perhaps even more importantly, don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need it. Being a new parent is an overwhelming experience and no parent—celeb or not—should be afraid say they can’t do it on their own! After all, it takes a village.
Exercise...when you’re ready
It’s important for all new moms not to jump back into their exercise routine too quickly. Always check with your doctor before getting back to the gym. Remember that celebrities have trainers to help them look their best. So be kind to yourself and your post-partum body. Even if it takes a few months before you start to get your old body back, remember that you created a baby! Not even the best beach body in the world can beat that feeling of being a new mom!
Remember, being a new mom can be hard, so take a breath, be patient on yourself, and when all else fails, cuddle with your beautiful new baby. 🤱
