Pregnant model is body-shammed by haters for having ‘Too Small’ of a baby bump


Instagram model, Hannah Polites, recently posted a photo of herself on the popular social network showcasing her six month baby bump – Some of her fan’s reactions were downright terrible!

Polites is a fitness junkie and author who boasts over 1.2 million followers who wanted to keep her fans in the loop on how her pregnancy was progressing. But with her toned abs and small frame, her bump wasn’t “big enough” to people’s liking…


It’s sad that people can’t just compliment her on the fact that she is staying in incredible shape through healthy diet and exercise.

Do you know how sensitive pregnant woman are? She must feel terrible about herself over your own insecurities and amusement.

Polites told the Gold Coast Bulletin:

“I know I am making informed decisions when it comes to nutrition and exercise in pregnancy and motherhood,” she said. “For the record, doctors have told me bub is healthy. All women’s bodies should be celebrated, especially at a time of pregnancy…I will continue to post photos of my body as I feel that it’s important to be a positive role model in the community.”


She posted: “Hotel room bump update! Almost 6 months carrying my little babe. For everyone asking the gender, it’s a surprise!”

The photo got over 788 comments, but most of them were negative like:

“You are killing your baby.”

“She looks like the baby is going to be deprived of nutrients.”

“You look like you need to get your back checked. If you’re standing up right, that is not healthy.”

“Does she know she has to eat enough for two? She doesn’t even look like she’s eating enough for herself. Stop chasing the perfect baby body and eat something substantial for your poor baby.”

“You are way too skinny. WTF.”
