So over: Obsessing over the pregnancy bounce-back

Physically 'bouncing back' after pregnancy has to be one of the most annoying phrases used to describe female physicality. It's up there, of course, with 'beach body'.

Or when a woman is described as being 'happy with her curves' as a euphemism for 'she's fat, but bizarrely seems happy'. It's not just the pressure that this puts  on a woman in the throes of newborn madness - considering her state of personal svelteness should be the furthest thing from her mind. But it's creepy - body leering, dressed up as a compliment. Obviously Dawn O'Porter - pictured  with her husband, Chris O'Dowd - looks incredible for a woman who  has had a baby in the last few months, but really, leave her, and the rest of us, off.
