Jenna Fischer Wants the Media to Leave New Moms Alone

May 6, 2012

Jenna Fischer is a new mom who is in no hurry to lose her pregnancy weight. The actress says new moms should be able to be just that without the added pressure of getting back into their skinny jeans. 

"There's so much pressure on you as a  new mom that the last thing you need to have hanging over your head is some expectation of what your body is supposed to look like," Fischer said. "Every new mother just gets a free pass. I'm actually angered by the 'posting in a bikini six weeks after having my baby' [trend]... Who cares if our boobs are hanging low and we have a little more junk in the trunk? We created a human being, everybody. Let's celebrate!" 

Fischer does seem to have a point -- the big 'post-baby body' reveal has become an even bigger media event than actual birth of a new child.
