In Mind & Body


Erin McNaught says that new mums need to have realistic and healthy expectations of their bodies.

She’s as drop-dead gorgeous as you can get, but Erin McNaught’s body isn’t the same as it was before she became a mother.

After giving birth to her second child five months ago, the model has now opened up about her post-baby body struggles.

“There is no such thing as getting your ‘pre-baby body’ back – you’ve had a baby and there are some changes that are inevitable. I have wrinkly skin on my tummy and my boobs will never recover,” the 35-year-old mother says.

Despite the pressure put on mums to bounce back after pregnancy, Erin is taking a stance and proving that mother’s shouldn’t compare themselves to the “strategically thought-out posts” on social media that only show the “perfect images”.

“I try to show my life as it is – no photoshop, and posting videos and pictures which show me working damn hard for the body I’ve got.

“But I do it because it feels good and it’s good for me, and I want other mums out there to know how amazing you can feel just from exercising.”

And damn hard does she work.

Exhibit A: modelling for Lorna Jane’s February campaign.

While the powerhouse mother-of-two-absolutely nailed it modelling around in a crop top and stunning pair of leggings, Lorna Jane says that her confidence, commitment and desire to be a role model for other mums, is what makes Erin even more beautiful.

“Our decision to include her in our February campaign was a no-brainer really based on the fact that she is an incredibly hard working mum of two, a business woman and someone that has always generated beauty and confidence from the inside-out.

“She is an incredibly example of what Lorna Jane’s brand philosophy is all about and it’s a great opportunity to show our customers and the world that women can really do anything when they set their mind to it.”

Mounting scientific evidence seems to suggest that hugs are good for your health. They lower blood pressure which is a risk factor for heart disease. Oxytocin, the chemical released by the brain while hugging, is being investigated as a treatment for various conditions, including depression.
