Too Much Pressure to Snap Back Quickly After Having a Baby?

1BlessedNatural: Too Much Pressure to Snap Back Quickly After Having a Baby? (photo courtesy of  gizelleprosperita)
Hey, my blessed naturals!
Every time I hear of a celebrity having a baby, I'm pretty sure there is an invisible clock counting down from that time until they snap back. It's happened with celebrities like Angela Simmons, Teyana Taylor, and more, and I'm pretty sure Janet Jackson will be next. The headlines of many news stories are always about how celeb moms don't look like they had a baby just seconds after bringing a new life into the world.

Here are my questions: Why is that THE goal? Where does the pressure to snap back quickly come from? Is it from fans, celebrities (themselves), both, or someone else? How does this standard affect moms and moms-to-be in general? Is the goal to have a baby but you have 10 seconds max to lose the baby weight or what? Thumbs down? [Please insert thinking and laughing hysterically emojis] I'm exaggerating on the time, but you know what I mean.

Now, don't get me wrong. When I have children (God-willing), I'm going to try and get back into shape, but I will not put myself under the pressure to do it quickly to impress other people. I want to know your opinions on this!
