Seven Year Switch stars Ryan and Cassie welcomed their fourth child in June. Cassie shares a pep talk to all mums trying to bounce back post partum.

Cassie shared a photo on Instagram with the caption, “That awkward marshmellow pudgey tummy ‘phase’  Three and a half months postpartum from pregnancy number 4 and this is the current state of my stomach!

Believe me when I say I know how disheartened you can feel as you are going through the throws of post pregnancy body changes, but you must remember the important word in this post is PHASE!

Mumma’s just know that after you have birthed your baby your body goes through another enormous change to get back to its pre-pregnancy condition. Of course we need to help it along with exercise and a healthy diet, but I promise with persistence you WILL get there!

The skin on my stomach is still very loose, I had considerable stomach separation which is still approximately at 3cm. I am still training 3 days a week and my diet is well I don’t have one… just everything in moderation.

The worst thing I find is when you look in the mirror one day and can see progress, then a couple of days later your hips decide to come in a bit further then you end up with more muffin top again! Argghhh So frustrating lol!! My point is it takes time. Be patient and consistent and you will get there.

P.s this is as much of a pep talk for me as it is for you! BELIEVE IN YOURSELVES MUMMA’S your bodies are amazing at every single ‘phase’ of this baby making journey XOXO”

Well said, Cassie.  Mumma’s please take note of her wise words.

  • Never heard of her of teh show she is known from.


  • Love this so much
    So many moms are feeling depressd just because of how our bodies look after kids
    You look amazing


  • This wasn’t an issue for my mum’s generation. We all need to be kinder to ourselves and remember that making a baby is a HUGE thing for our bodies but RECOVERING from making a baby is just as big a thing.


  • Us mums place way too much pressure on ourselves, in all aspects of everyday life


  • So true, our bodies are amazing !!


  • Yes!! That part about seeing progress and then your hips come on further
    I thiught thats what had happened to me but wasnt sure if that was a thing
    I also had a baby in june


  • Be happy with your body no matter what it looks like.


  • A Mum’s body is amazing. It has carried and “cared” for a baby for an average of 40 weeks, then given birth, then had very little time before going home and resuming her normal routine + caring for a new baby and all the chores it entails.


  • So great to post this image. You don’t want to see these trim bellies after a few weeks of giving birth, that’s just not realistic!


  • Good on her for being and honest and open.
