Embrace your post-baby body, says mum-of-two Lucy Kennedy
Presenter Lucy Kennedy is very open about her busy life as a mum-of-two.
The Late Lunch Live presenter (right) will soon move to a new later slot on TV3, and she's kept going by offering advice to mums in her blog for Mummy Pages.
Lucy has advised new mums not to panic and they will soon feel like themselves again.
"In the early stages of becoming a parent and a mother, you get so consumed and involved with your baby that you forget about yourself totally. Or at least I did," she said.
"When Jack and Holly were about six months, it was then that I realised that I could start becoming myself again.
"My body looked more familiar (slightly), my skin was a little tighter and my energy improved. I started exercising and eating more healthily," she added.
Lucy's top tip is for women to embrace their post-baby bodies.
"Women's confidence disappears a little... we forget what a huge achievement having and looking after an infant is. Instead of resenting our post- baby bodies, we should try and celebrate them," she insists.
