    i didn't say she made it an expectation. Society has made it an expectation. How many threads have we seen in here about mums " letting themselves go" because they no longer spend hours in the morning doing hair, makeup, etc.


    We are our own worst enemies. And the fact that women feel they need to get waxed, have Botox etc.

    ETA - God forbid a woman wears trackies to the shops or jeggings

    I wear trakkies to Coles on a regular basis. Love my trakkie-daks. First thing I do when I get home is put them on!

    I'm the opposite haha. I care so little about fashion, I literally own two pairs of jeans, 2 shorts, 2 track pants (that I use as pjs) and 8 shirts. I can fit my whole wardrobe in an overnight bag. It all goes in one drawer in our tallboy. But I always wear jeans when I leave the house. It's just what I'm comfortable in haha. I also don't own any make up beyond chap sticks. I've always been this way.

    Also, until this thread, I had no idea who Rebecca Judd was. So I can't comment how she looks now compared to before giving birth. She looked happy though. That buggered but content kind of happy. So that's nice.

    I was just talking about her skin. She's only 33, so I really think in her case it's all good genetics.

    Her eyes may look sunken, but her skin still looks perfect. Make up or no make up.

    I think it's great she has accomplished a lot, I do wonder if she would be on 9 news and have all those other things going on if she was still just modelling in Perth? (Not including her speech pathology qualification) she moved to Melbourne as Chris Judd started playing for Carlton.

    I'm sure it's possible, I guess we all have things in our lives that work together to help us in our achievements.

    I just think good on her to do what she has done, no it's not for everyone but if looks are important to her why is that an issue?

    I'm on both sides of the fence - as a public figure she should realise that not all mothers will do themselves up for post baby photos, and these images may send the wrong message (or make other mums feel like crap) but if that's what she wanted to do - that's her prerogative but it is a shame if she felt pressure she had to do this before her photos.

    Me personally I'm jealous of her in many ways but that's all my own issues, nothing to do with her.

    Yes I know someone who had two girls, then a boy, then two more girls and desperately wanted another boy but instead got pregnant with twin girls
    A friend in the USA went for a 3rd and got triplets - all girls

    Good question.

    In my old age I have much less patience and tolerance for people who place value on external looks. There are so many causes and people in this world (kids dying of cancer, war and starvation everyday...) that could benefit from extra support, I find it distasteful/it irritates me when people waste money and time on non medically essential plastic surgery for themselves .... and post their big noggens publicly on social media for the 'likes.'

    If we ever agreed to go again. (not likely) My DH would absolutely die in the delivery room if I suddenly had twins.

    I can't stand her. She comes across extremely superficial and narcissistic. I'm not jealous in the least. Top that off that I consider her being famous for no good reason and the attention seeking selfies make my eye twitch.

    I know that I can't or shouldn't be able to control others, and I can't have my daughter in a bubble, but I've worked so hard to have her love herself inside and out. And these types of images, IMHO undermine that. Bc that's not how most women look after a c/s. Of course she's allowed to have botox and put on an inch of make up pre/post c/s. But she is influencing young women and that's a big responsibility.
