Maureen Waititu is always very honest when it comes to motherhood because she doesn't want to give soon-to-be mothers false expectations.
Taking to social media a day after she posted how excited she was her son Kai Kai finally joined school, Maureen opened up about her baby pouch.
The fear many mothers have is if they will ever get back in shape after giving birth or if they will ever feel sexy again.
"A story for ladies & mamas struggling with weight loss and management. When I was pregnant with my last born son🤰🏾, he loved sitting on the left side of my tummy but it’s mostly because I used to sleep on my left throughout the pregnancy as advised by my Doc- but since his birth, I’ve always had a stubborn baby pouch which occasionally hangs mostly on my left side🤣🤣 and it’s most prominent when I sit, in fact, if you look closely at my lower belly, you can see it peeping depending on my eating habits and my hormonal cycle. Yes-Women add water weight and get bloated around the same time as their calendar among a million other reasons we can’t control. "
"Anyway, what I am saying is, I have finally started feeling like myself and my son is now 3 years old-and so for mamas with young babies and toddlers but feel like they’ll never be the same, or even look like another mom with a hot body, please be patient with yourselves-keep pushing and staying consistent and you’ll start to see results. But most importantly and where possible, do a metabolic test to see how your body is performing, what it needs and what it could be lacking. "
