Holliday, a model with non-traditional for modeling shape, can be a real
“mythbuster”, countering stereotypes about pregnancy if one is a plus-size
Tess Holliday, a notable model, recently spoke out regarding the various stereotypes, which were linked with plus size pregnancies.
Holliday posted on Instagram when she learned about her second pregnancy, but thanks to her plus sized body, she was attacked by quite a few internet trolls, all voicing blatant and insulting disapproval.
Though, she took them all head-on. After she had given birth to her smallest kid, called Bowie in 2017, she began campaigning against and condemning any negativity and terrible associations with being pregnant if one was a plus size woman.
She said that these women were just as capable as other women of being able
to have a perfectly healthy pregnancy or a child. According to her, it was
already being done every single day.
Even though almost every woman faces her own challenges while being pregnant, if they are plus sized, this only becomes aggravated, and their body size turns into a negative trait.
Holliday spoke about the challenges she faced when pregnant, and the horrifying way people had reacted to plus sized women, her in particular. A lot of them kept stating that it was impossible for her to be able to stay pregnant and keep the fetus healthy.
She ignored them, and says that she has managed to prove them wrong.
Her advice for other plus sized pregnant women is to just go about ignoring any negativity or insults that people may come up with. She asks these women to be confident in their bodies, and it’s innate abilities in nurturing your children.
She went on to say that each body
and pregnancy was unique, and to be the safest, the women should be in tune
with their body and listen. They should be trusting of what their body says,
then take the most ideal actions.
Often, women also face a great deal of pressure in returning to their body before their pregnancy, and this leads them to take actions which may culminate in them missing out on a great deal of their child’s life.
Tess Holliday said that she was trying to make peace with
the body she has after giving birth. She says that the whole thing was worth
it, and that while wanting to change herself was ok, forcing it wasn’t,
especially if it led to missing her baby’s important moments.
