Earlier this week Mia Freedman wrote a piece called, ‘Dear women who post photos of their post-baby bodies’. She had a genuine question to ask of the women posting photos of their bodies in the days and weeks after giving birth: why? 

Lauren and Barry share a first glimpse of their son Miller

  Lauren and Barry share a first glimpse of their son Miller Lauren Brant and Barry Hall have share a first glimpse of their son Miller. But Miller's debut hasn't come without some controversyTaking to social media, the reality TV stars shared a string of posts gushing about their son Miller Hall.

How does she do it? Lauren Brant flaunts her amazing postpartum physique in skimpy bikini just ONE WEEK after giving birth . By Faye James For Daily Mail Australia 00:20 15 May 2017, updated 01:08 15 May 2017.

Photos . Weather. Read Your Paper. 9:13PM Dion Lee kicks off Australian Fashion Week . 9:13PM Two dead in Tasmanian crash. 9:13PM Portugal's balladeer wins Eurovision.

And while Mia did not name any of the women in her post as she was addressing a phenomenon, not an individual, Lauren Brant has since identified herself as one of the women who appeared in the story. Here, Lauren answers Mia’s question: 

Hi Mia,

I have read your post and appreciate that you chose not to use names, however you have used my image and although I can’t compete with your journalism skills, I do have a strong opinion which I believe is important for you to read in response to your statements.

Throughout my pregnancy I was told that a good diet and exercise is good for the baby, good for a healthy delivery, better for me as a mother to recover and also to prevent or better deal with post natal depression.

I was so sick at the start of my pregnancy, then had some very un-motivating hormonal emotions. But I remembered the first fact and forced myself to do at least a little exercise everyday and eat well.

'Bachelor' stars Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell split

  'Bachelor' stars Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell split It seems their final rose has wilted. Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell, who found love in possibly the most hopeless place, on ABC's "The Bachelor," have officially called it quits, they revealed to People. "It is with heavy hearts that we announce our decision to go separate ways," their statement read. "We feel fortunate for the time we had together, and will remain friends with much love and respect for one another. We wish nothing but the best for each other, and ask for your support and understanding at this time."The pair met on the hit ABC reality show when Higgins, 29, was the Bachelor on season 20 in 2016.

Not gonna lie: when I saw the image Lauren Brant posted of herself just one week after giving birth , I may have sighed. Or was it a groan? I don’t know – let’s just say I rolled my eyes. Because the photo Lauren chose to share was so ridiculously private.

It’s been just over a week since she gave birth to Miller Hall and finally, Lauren Brant has shared an incredible snap of her baby.

Trust me, I was happy to just be pregnant, eat for two and sit on the couch and have other people do things for me. That would have been much easier. But I kept reminding myself that it would be better for me and bub in the long term. What would happen in nine months when I couldn't use pregnancy as an excuse anymore?!

You know how frustrating it can be for a person, not pregnant, to exercise and watch what they eat regularly and not see results? Well I found it extremely frustrating actually putting on weight (in other areas than my tummy) and getting more tired and more uncomfortable.

This was my first pregnancy and I didn't know what to expect. I loved my baby from the moment he was conceived, but it was a huge time of learning for me. I happily handed over my body to create the miracle that is our son, but I myself looked to other women's post natal photos to remind me that I would feel myself again after birth and that the exercise and healthy diet would pay off in the end.

It proved to be the best thing for me! I went for a big walk the night before I went into labour, the labour was fairly short for a first time, then after only 12 mins of pushing, a healthy delivery and being up walking an hour after, I realised the exercise and healthy lifestyle, the struggle to keep motivated and the reminders that I would feel myself again were ALL worth it.

It was a huge surprise to me, that after only a week, I felt ownership of my body again. I had a spring in my step. I was able to create and birth a life and then find immense respect and love for myself at the end.

My exercise was so precautionary and my diet was all in the best interest of my son, yes I rested and treated myself when I needed, because that is very important too.

So, the reason I posted a pic of my body one WEEK post partum (and chose to put it only on my story for those mums who have actively followed my pregnancy), is so that other women who are trying to exercise and eat healthy throughout their pregnancy, but are feeling un-motivated, can see that it's worth it in the end.

Getting my EASTER Monday workout done! It has been a very interesting ride, having to find exercise that works for me through each stage of my pregnancy. I have found some light aerobic step work to be the flavour of this month...it's gives me a little cardio and some toning through my legs and butt! Then I finish off with some very light, high rep arm work.... ok ok I just dance while holding dumbells

Taronga Zoo welcomes arrival of baby Asian elephant .
After a pregnancy lasting 22 months, the birth of a new Asian elephant at Sydney's Taronga Zoo was remarkably swift. The male calf's birth took about half an hour and it was standing on its feet five minutes later.The as-yet-unnamed baby elephant is the second calf for mother Pak Boon who delivered her baby naturally early on Friday morning, without any assistance from the Taronga team."It was a very quick and easy birth," Taronga's senior veterinarian Larry Vogelnest said."It was born within a group with the other two elephants we have and it was just a fantastic situation to see all three of them together.
