Fitness model and mum, Sarah Stage, is no stranger to controversy, having previously made headlines for the small (but perfectly healthy) size of her baby bump. Now, the “six-pack mum” is copping criticism for working out at six months pregnant.
Stage recently posted a video to Instagram showing her home workout. In the caption she addressed some of the comments she has received about exercising while expecting.
“ALSO,” she writes, “Baby is perfectly fine in my tummy nice and safe while I work out. My doctor has given me the OK to continue exercising while pregnant but if you're expecting please check with your dr. first since everyone is different.”
And while plenty of people were quick to share their criticisms, there were just as many praising the 33-year-old for promoting a healthy lifestyle during pregnancy.
It's important to note that health advice from Instagrammers should be taken with a grain (if not a fistful) of salt. Always chat to a health care professional about exercising during pregnancy, but there are plenty of workouts that are incredibly beneficial to mum and bub.
