Sarah Harris Gets Fat Shamed Just For Being Pregnant

Studio 10 presenter Sarah Harris is currently pregnant and to the shock and horror of everyone, she actually looks like a pregnant woman!

The Daily Mail recently published some photos of Sarah ‘leaving the Channel 10 studios’ looking like any other heavily pregnant woman. She was shown without the heavy make up we’re used to seeing on her and was dressed in casual clothes.

The television host said her first reaction to the unflattering pictures was one of shame before quickly realising that there was nothing wrong with how she looked just two months away from giving birth.

In fact,  Harris was fine with the photos until she made the mistake of reading the comments that the readers had left.

“Some of them were just revolting,” she said, “having a go of how huge I am, how fat I am, how ugly I am, and when you’re pregnant you do feel very vulnerable and selfconscious about your body and I did feel pretty awful about the comments and the pictures, but then I thought ‘you know what? Bugger it, I’m growing a baby. This is me’.
“This is how I get around once I leave work, I take off the pretty frocks, the heavy makeup, the hair, I take off my spanx which I’m still wearing. That’s what I look like and that’s OK.”

Harris said she hoped the photos made other pregnant women feel better about their bodies rather than feeling ashamed.

“I’m kind of fed up with the body shaming that happens when you’re pregnant and then the pressure that comes afterwards to lose the baby weight.
“On behalf of all the pregnant women out there who might be feeling a little bit chubby and a little bit flabby, on behalf of all of them, I want to say to the haters ‘get stuffed’.”

Harris amusingly clarified that she wasn’t in fact leaving the studio: “And by the way, I wasn’t leaving work, I was leaving a Mexican restaurant where I had an awesome, awesome chicken burrito at the time.
“Don’t try and come between me and a chicken burrito.”

How sad that women feel it’s okay to write in and fat shame another woman simply because she looks pregnant. Women have enough pressure to lose weight once they’ve had their baby let alone being made to feel ashamed and embarrassed about their bodies while pregnant. What Sarah Harris said is spot on- she is growing a baby in there! How dare anyone think it’s acceptable to comment on how she looks! Do you agree?
