Professional dancer Peta Murgatroyd has been making headlines since she posted an honest postpartum photo to Instagram eight days after having her son, Shai, back in January. In an interview with Good Morning America in February — Shai's onscreen debut — Peta went further to say that she was disappointed that she left the hospital looking five months pregnant despite having her baby.
"I left the hospital literally looking five months pregnant," she said. "At first I was like, 'Oh wow.' I was a little disappointed, but I realized I just did the most beautiful thing that a woman can produce and do in life. I need to just suck it up, move on, and not worry about the little things."
Every mother has a unique experience with her postpartum body and approaches her subsequent feelings over the way she looks differently, but I think most of us can agree with Peta's sentiment to try not to worry about the little things, just your little one.
