'Take your time. Be easy on yourself, your body AND your mind. Remember you are in recovery and don’t forget to also remind those around you,' the 35-year-old wrote.
For any new mom still getting used to their postpartum bodies, singer Jessie J has some a powerful message to share. The singer, 35, announced the birth of her son, Sky Safir Cornish Colman on May 19. The Grammy award winner shares her first baby with her boyfriend, professional basketball player Chanan Safir Colman, reported PEOPLE.
In 2021, the singer suffered a pregnancy loss, as reported by PEOPLE. After welcoming her blessed son, the British pop star is now discussing her post-baby body to remind not just herself, but other moms about the amazing things their bodies have done to bring their children safely into the world. "I'm writing this for myself as well as anyone else that needs to read this," the "Price Tag," songstress wrote on Instagram, alongside a semi-nude photo of her post-baby body. She continued, "Your body was a home for someone else to live in for 9 months." She added that the body's organs have been moving to accommodate the space of a growing child. "Your body is working the hardest it has ever worked. You are exhausted, but you are magical. You grew a whole human. A human who is doing this with you and loves you beyond measure. Take your time."
The artist also reminded new parents to "be easy on yourself, your body AND your mind" and wanted them to "remember you are in recovery and don't forget to also remind those around you." She advised moms to avoid the pressure to "spring back" to shape. "Celebrate your new body. It HAD to change. It will be bigger and smaller in different places," she wrote, adding, "Ignore the whispers of what some people say you should or shouldn't look like after a certain time. It's 2023."

Jessie went on to remind moms that everyone's body is different, as this is what makes each person unique and special. "This was my body 11 days after giving birth and I still look pretty much the same now 35 days on," Jessie shared in her post. "I LOVE my body. It has given me the most magical roommate inside and outside of my body. And when it's ready and able to change again, it will. Whatever that looks like. I'm here for it. You are doing amazing, Mamma. You the MVP." Jessie has often been vocal about body positivity throughout her career. The "Bang Bang" singer previously posed topless to take a cast of her baby bump, according to POP Sugar and showed off several "belly-out" maternity looks.
Back in 2021, she asked people to stop commenting on people's bodies. "Stop commenting on people's weight. Anyone. Just stop. Or telling someone they look pregnant for sure. Or you look skinny. Just anything. Just stop," Jessie wrote in an Instagram post in 2021, E! News reported. "I have gained 10 lbs. in the past 6 months and I feel great," she said at the time. "It might stay, or it might not, or I might gain more. Who cares?! I don't care as long as I feel good and I'm healthy."
