"Don’t let anyone make you feel any different.”

Renowned makeup artist Natasha Khalid recently welcomed her little bundle of joy into the world and has discussed her post-baby weight.

Undeniably, gaining weight is part of becoming a new mother. As well as affecting the way you look, it can also affect you mentally.

During her pregnancy, Natasha Khalid shared several images of herself and her baby bump. She certainly looked stunning.

Taking to Instagram, Natasha shared a heartfelt message with her fans about her post-baby weight as well as motivating them. She wrote:

“I have always been in awe of those women I see that somehow seem to go back to being fit & look like they have it all together right after having a baby.

“Whilst I always wished them well I also realised the kind of pressure it put on all us women in general, as all of our journeys with our bodies are different and are not meant to be the same.

“With all the beauty videos that I’m posting there has been influx of messages of how I lose all my baby weight? How do I look so put together with such a small baby?”

Natasha continued to reveal that she is not focusing on losing her baby weight. She said:

“And I want to tell all the women & mamas messaging me that I have not lost the baby weight, I have a mama belly & am softer all over, my focus right now is my breastfeeding and eating what I love & indulging. And that is OK.

“I am also forever feeling like I’m not doing enough, forever trying to set routines for her, bathe her, play with her, do it all in time while juggling work and relationships and I am not able to do that most days. And that is OK.

“Having a baby may be one of the hardest things we do as women because alongside the absolute joy is a loss of self, massive hormonal shifts, I am paranoid about protecting my baby all the time, I fight with my husband & mum most days and cry in the shower without fail every day. And that is OK.”

“These pictures taken today is me in my Sunday best, which is no makeup, my husband’s shirt, burp cloth, crumpled pyjamas, oil in my hair, Noor in my hands & smile on my face.

“I don’t have it all together and I don’t have all the answers. I am learning to be a mum alongside my Noor, falling apart most of the time but then getting up and trying again.

“To everyone who struggles, I feel you and send so much power & love to all mamas & women out there.”

“We are absolutely powerful & incredible in every way, don’t let anyone make you feel any different.”

Natasha Khalid’s empowering words will surely help new mothers who are also struggling with post-baby weight.
