Post baby body: Kate Middleton vs Kim Kardashian
The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton did something most women in the limelight don't usually do. She appeared in public just a day after giving birth and showed off her post childbirth body...with a bump still visible for the world to see, unlike many celebrity women who hide after giving birth and appear a few weeks later with a flat stomach, looking fit and flawless. Star magazine claims the pic on their cover is the first photo of Kim K since she gave birth on June 15th. (Not sure I believe it though) But Kim hasn't made a public appearance since welcoming baby North and many believe she wants to shed the baby weight and look perfect again before appearing in public. Kate has shown the world what most women look like after giving birth, a more realistic image of a post baby body...and not the lightning-speed weight loss most Hollywood celebs experience after child birth. A doctor explains why Kate still looked pregnant after giving birth. See that after the cut.. “Seeing Kate leaving the hospital as though she is almost six months pregnant is not unusual,” said Dr. Douglas M. Black, an obstetrics and gynecological specialist in Ottawa and past president of the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada. "A woman will generally gain about 16 kilograms during her pregnancy and will lose about seven kg during birth. However, the uterus has grown and stretched. It takes about three to four weeks for it to return to its pre pregnancy shape and size, This is what makes a woman look as though she is still pregnant after giving birth."
