These brutally honest photos have been shared to help new mums embrace their figures and understand it's "okay to hate the way they look” after giving birth.

Chantelle Donnelly posted the pictures online of her own post-baby body which she called "disgusting".

And she wrote on Instagram, women shouldn't "have to feel great" about the way they look.

"Why should I have to love my body? Because it grew two humans?

"Yes, I'm very proud of my body because it's been through so much in the last few years," the mum posted.

"But does being proud of my body mean that I have to love the way it looks? Hell no. When I look in the mirror I don't love what I see, but I'm not sad about that.

Chantelle said it is okay for mus to hate their post-baby bodies

"You don't need to feel pressured into loving your body and it's OK if you don't. Love your body? I'm so happy that you do.
