Hello!

Kylie Jenner has called on mums to stop putting pressure on themselves after giving birth, saying her second postpartum journey hasn’t been easy.

The mum-of-two gave birth to her second baby, son Wolf Webster, just six weeks ago, and is back at the gym. She shared a series of Instagram stories of herself on the treadmill, and followed up with a message to her 318 million followers.

“I just wanted to say to my postpartum mums, that postpartum has not been easy,” Kylie said. “It’s not been easy, it’s very hard. This experience for me personally has been a little harder than with my daughter. It’s not easy mentally, physically, spiritually, it’s just crazy.”

The 24-year-old, who also shares daughter Stormi, 4, with rapper Travis Scott, said she didn’t want other mums to compare themselves to what they see on social media.

“I didn’t just want to get back to life without saying that because I think we can look on the internet and … it might look a lot easier for other people and put the pressure on us but it hasn’t been easy for me. It’s been hard. And I just wanted to say that. I didn’t even think I’d make it to this workout today but I’m here and feeling better, so we got this.”

But Kylie also added that mums shouldn’t feel the need to ‘bounce back’ to their pre-pregnancy selves.

“And it’s ok to not be ok. Once I realised that I was putting some pressure on myself and I just keep reminding myself I made a whole human. A beautiful, healthy boy and we have to stop putting pressure on ourselves to ‘be back’. Not even physically just mentally after birth.”

  • I always second guess things people say on social media…like it’s a lovely message and should be spread but we all live different lives

  • It’s good that she is open and human looking after all..

  • This is so validating to read for many women who have high expectations after a birth. It’s great that she is using her platform to put this out there.

  • So nice to hear this rather than the usual celebrity ‘Look at me! I can do it, why can’t you?’ sort of tweets. About time one told it how it really is.

  • Finally a celebrity admitting that it’s not easy to get back our bodies back to the way it was before pregnancy. She may have the money to be able to help her but that won’t help how she feels inside.

  • She has all the money to get help. I am sorry but really Kylie you can buy anything you want. She needs a reality check.

  • It’s so important to talk about PND. The more we talk, the more we learn, the more we can empathise.

  • I agree. So many put so much pressure on celebrities to bounce back quick and even judge other mums. Your body takes time to heal. Enjoy the time with bub and focus on your mentalhealth first, everything else will follow

  • Like that shes keeping it real and for us everyday mums, it is hard!

  • I’m pregnant with baby number 4 and before I found out I was slowly getting back towards my pre pregnancy weight. I know I’m going to hate my body after this baby, but ultimately it’s up to us to make the change.

  • Hmm easy for her- she could hire the best experts in nutrition to help her.

  • Good to be real about this.

    Reply

  • Good message but seems she is still rushing herself

  • Glad ro see her acknowledging that it’s not easy, nothing about parenting is easy for anyone.
