This mom is being shamed for exercising while pregnant
Another day, another opportunity for haters to judge people they don’t know on the internet. After a fitness model posted a video of herself exercising while 6 months pregnant, commenters came out of the woodwork to criticize her for her choices.
Sarah Stage is a 33-year-old model. She posted a video of herself doing a core-heavy home workout (with her 2-year-old son James in tow). Because the internet can’t get enough of 1) shaming women for their bodies and 2) shaming mothers and pregnant women for their parenting choices, the judgemental comments came quick and heavy to Stage’s Instagram profile.
Stage followed up to say she received her doctor’s approval to maintain her regular exercise routine. According to pre- and post-natal fitness expert Hannah Davis, Stage was right to consult her doctor beforehand.
SO. Moral of the story: If you’re not carrying the child in question or the doctor of the person who is, keep those hurtful comments to yourself.
