You go, girl!!
Peta Murgatroyd may have just given birth, like, eleven days ago, but that doesn't mean the new mom isn't ready to get real about the unrealistic post-baby body expectations thrown on to so many women!

The Dancing With The Stars star — who welcomed the baby with her love Maksim Chmerkovskiy — posted the pic you can see (above) to her Instagram account on Sunday, calling out body expectations and getting real about body goals!
Oh, and she also delivered a message about we can expect to see pics of the beautiful new baby, too!!
Here's what she had to say in a caption accompanying that pic (below):
Real life: I took this photo 8 days post birth. I left the hospital looking 5 months pregnant. Many people think a woman should shrink right back to her pre-birth weight immediately. That is just not the truth for most. The female body is incredible and resilient, but healing and strengthening take time. Now it's time for patience and hard work. Lots of love to all the new mamas out there on the journey. 💪🏼💪🏼 #yesihaveascrunchieinmyhair #shaiiswortheverypound
Preach, girl, PREACH!!!
She looks AH-Mazing in her post-baby body, five-month pregnant look be damned! And she should conform to no one BUT the best moves she personally needs to make for her own health!
