It can be very challenging for women to get their pre-pregnancy bodies back, so when it happens, it creates a stir.

Caroline Berg Eriksen, 26, the wife of a Norwegian soccer player, has indeed created a stir after she posted a photo of herself on Instagram three days after giving birth. As you can see in the photo below, she hardly looks like she welcomed a baby into the world just three days before.

Berg Eriksen said she posted the photo to prove a point:

During the pregnancy, people kept telling me that my body will never be the same and I wanted to show everybody that’s not entirely true."

Berg Eriksen gained 22 pounds during her pregnancy and may have induced the ire of women worldwide when she said, "Right after birth, like three minutes after, I felt like myself again."

The photo has set the internet on fire, with many women posting comments that it simply can't be true Berg Eriksen looks like this so soon after giving birth.

Regardless, she claims she wasn't trying to rub her figure in the face of other women, adding, “I think all women should be proud of themselves, regardless of how they look after labor."

This is hardly the first time a mother has drawn criticism for showing off a seemingly perfect body after having a baby. Just last month, new mom Maria Kang infuriated women with this photo.
