Should we be praising the baby body ‘snapback’?
Judging by her Instagram, Hart seems to have kept fitness a priority throughout and after her pregnancy. She recently shared a mesmerizing time-lapse video that shows her doing squats, with her bump growing and then receding.
While Hart (and baby Zo) look happy and healthy, should the snapback really be drawing praise? Sherry Ross, MD, ob-gyn, and women’s health expert at Providence Saint John’s Health Center in Santa Monica, Calif., is worried that the phrase puts undue pressure on pregnant women.
“I cannot support ‘the snapback’ approach during the postpartum period for the majority of women. The snapback philosophy can cause an overwhelming amount of unnecessary pressure and stress during an already hormonal and emotional time,” Ross tells Yahoo Lifestyle.
