An Australian fitness model that is currently pregnant and exercises still every day has come out against her critics.
Her name is Chontel Duncan and she is a fitness instructor that has continued on with her heavy training even though she is pregnant.
She probably does a lot more exercise than most people who are not pregnant.
Her abs are solid even though she has a baby inside of her. She has not held back her views on the matter at all.
In a post on Instagram, she said:
People think I’m harming my baby … and that I’m all about staying skinny and not nourishing my [baby]. I know it’s hard to believe that someone can carry a child the way I am, but in reality, a lot of women carry like me.
I’m going to continue to train right up until my first contraction, I’m going to get straight back into fitness the day I am given the ‘all clear’.
I’m going to document my physical changes post baby & I’m going to probably upset a few people. I am aware of this & I don’t care, people need to see variety in pregnancies, see hope in being able to do it all & remember it’s important for new mums to look after themselves mentally & physically to be prepared to tackle every challenge ahead of them.
This was after she had made the comparison between baby bumps and average looking women.
She isn’t the first fitness model to be super fit while pregnant. Sarah Stage did the same thing.
The child is due on the 30th of March and she is really looking forward to it.
