Influencer Hannah Polites Says She Was Body Shamed For The Size Of Her Baby Bump

  • Hannah Polites is a fashion and healthy lifestyle influencer based in Australia.
  • Hannah gave birth to her second child June 5, and has shared photos of her changing body throughout her pregnancy and after.
  • The 28-year-old has been body-shamed for her photos, mainly that her bump was too large, but she isn’t letting the negative comments bother her.

Hannah Polites is a 28-year-old lifestyle blogger and influencer based in Australia’s Gold Coast. Generally, she focuses on fitness, food, style, and travel, but with a brand-new baby, she’s been filling her feed with pregnancy photos and her honest postpartum experience.

In her most recent post though, Hannah reveals she actually suffered some body-shaming during her pregnancy. The new post, shared on Instagram Sunday, shared a before-and-after photo of Hannah at 38 weeks pregnant and 13 days postpartum.

“The body is so amazing,” she wrote. “Cannot believe how much more I popped with this baby compared to my pregnancy with Evaliah [her first child]. I would get comments everywhere I went about how big I was and ‘am I sure there’s not two in there?!'”

38 weeks pregnant 🤰🏼 24hrs post birth 🤱🏼✨💕 Although a little confronting for me, I want to be as real as possible with you all and share my post partum body journey exactly how it is. I was tired, pale and a little sore but so proud of what I’d just achieved the day before. The human body is so amazing and I’m so thankful that mine was able to grow, birth and now nurture my boy 😱👶🏼💖 I’m in no rush to “bounce back” and will just be focusing on my family and new baby, not exercising for at least 6 weeks. Evaliah has already asked why mama’s belly button “looks funny” and why my skin on my belly is so soft and she now knows that it’s because my body created a beautiful life and that’s bloody incredible ✨😭 #thankful #postpartumbody #postpartum

Hannah went on to say that while this baby (named Arlo, FYI) weighed 450 grams—or just about one pound—more than her first child, he was still “well within average.” Hannah also countered body critics: “Luckily, I don’t let the comments worry me as I knew my body wouldn’t grow a baby it couldn’t handle,” she wrote.

This isn’t the first post-baby photo Hannah’s shared in an effort to be as real as possible with her followers. Just one day after giving birth, she shared a nude mirror selfie, showing her postpartum body.
