The new mum has responded to the backlash she received after followers condemned her for holding her baby "the wrong way"
Chontel Duncan rose to online fame by being the woman with the “world’s greatest pregnancy abs”. Many were in disbelief when she posted a photo of her friend, who was also expecting.
This challenged what most people perceive as typical baby bumps.
Five months later, she gave birth to Jeremiah at 39 weeks and two days; he weighed a healthy 3.5 kilos. Now, the new mum is eager to flaunt her fit post-pregnancy body.
BUMP UPDATE ???? 39 weeks…. Only 7 days to go ???? I have hung up the gloves & sneakers ???????????????????? Had my last session Monday night, absolutely LOVED it, had great energy, flexibility & recovery… but my instincts told me that this should be my last @hiit_australia class. It’s hard to explain but you just know your body & it’s almost like you have this bizarre connection with it where it tells you… Anyways I am proud of my journey, SO proud of Little D & couldn’t have wished for a better experience. Now for the waiting game till our D Day! My husband has been incredible, foot rubs, sneaking off to work so I get a sleep in, making sure everything is ready, always turning up to our OB appts with a bucket full of Q’s, going over everything we need to do when the day finally arrives & always asking me how I an his son are. Seriously couldn’t have done it without him ☺️ My final challenge is accepting that I have to take time off from work, I can’t run the classes, can’t train in them, can’t control the office & oversee that everything is running smoothly… I have other priorities now & until Little D arrives I cannot structure or plan out a new routine until then. I have no idea how I will make it work, but I just know it will. I love my job, I love the atmosphere, I love the people, I love being productive, busy & achieving. So now it’s time to step out for a second & challenge myself to master running a business whilst being the best mum a possibly can for my little man. Is crazy to think that soon I won’t have my bump…???? Little D I cannot wait to meet you ???? “First glimpse of him will be on my snap chat chontelduncan”
To my snappers the crop from this mornings walk is from @lornajaneactive its a new one so should still be available. It’s not a maternity crop but the straps can be unclipped so you can slide your arm out easily. It’s a support crop so ???????? perfect for larger jugs ???? Today little Miah is 13 days old & my c-section incision is healing nicely. It’s larger then a normal one due to the doctors struggling to get Miah out at the time of my operation where my core held him in very tightly. Scar, stretch marks, wider hips, heavy “not so perky” jugs WHO CARES I have a baby & though I was very lucky to not have many of those I did receive a large scar which I am very proud of ☺️ Today is visiting day!!!!! #lornajane

In the photo, Chontel is holding her baby boy close to her chest. She writes in the caption: “Today little Miah is 13 days old & my c-section incision is healing nicely.

She wasn’t expecting the backlash that followed…
