On Jan. 24, Jeannie took to Instagram to share one of her hacks for new mothers: Frida Mom briefs. While some would never post a photo of themselves in underwear just weeks after giving birth, The Real co-host wanted to give her 2.7 million followers an honest look at her postpartum life.
“I couldn’t believe I was showing a part of my body that I wasn’t even okay with as I passed each mirror daily,” she said. “I knew my stomach and skin would not return back to its normal state, of course, but I didn’t think I’d still look four or five months pregnant!
However, she knew she wanted to share that “insecurity” and be “open” with others. Jeannie explained, “I am so very grateful for honest women out there who respond with support or solutions rather than criticism. After all, that’s what community is all about.”
So, this month, Jeannie partnered with Frida Mom to help shine a light on the realities of motherhood and the postpartum period. Along the way, she discovered a few new products that have become must-haves.
