Even amazing elite athletes deal with stretch marks and saggy skin!
Recently we've seen a lot of women in the fitness industry posting pictures of their pregnant or post baby bodies. We've sat in awe at how they seem to just bounce right back after baby or have bumps so tiny it's almost unfathomable.
We've all chalked it up to being in super great shape before they got pregnant and taking great care of themselves while growing a life inside of them. Or, to a smaller degree, just having really great genes. But not every mother who is an elite athlete has a super flat stomach five minutes after delivering their baby.
