During pregnancy, a woman’s body goes through major transformations. And even after delivery, it takes a while for the new mothers to get back in their original shape. Where every woman’s body is different, Gabriella Demetriades, who welcomed a baby boy, Arik Rampal with Arjun Rampal, has already started working towards getting back to her old self. She took to Instagram and shared her transformation story.
Sharing the first photo, she wrote, “This was me 3 weeks ago… a week before giving birth to my beautiful boy (almost 10 pounds of him) I had picked up 21 kgs in my 9th month of pregnancy. This seems like a story everyone wants to hear. It was not easy to watch my body go through that, however, I trusted the process. I continued working out, not perhaps the same level of training I was used to but I worked out almost 5 days a week. I ate what I wanted but in moderation and I rested when my body told me to.”
She then went on to share that she had a natural delivery, and during that time, she couldn’t care less about what she looked like. All she really cared about was that her baby was healthy and happy.
Sharing the last photo, which was taken 11 days after her delivery, she wrote that prenatal yoga really helped her keep her pelvic floor strong. She also had some advice for the new mommy out there. “Also remember everyone is different and all good things take time. So, be patient with your body and mind,” she wrote.
What a transformation this is!
