A woman named Lea-Ann Ellison recently became quite popular on social media due to the controversial nature of the photos she had posted. She is currently in the last stages of her pregnancy and due in a couple of weeks.
The photos she posted online present her in a very peculiar fashion which is not quite traditional for a soon-to-be mother.
She made a whole photoshoot of her doing heavy weight lifting exercises and she loved it. Lea-Ann is not just flexing with some little girly dumbbells. She is sticking to her strict fitness routine which is customized for professional sportsmen and soldiers from the military. Lea-Ann is already a mother of two and has been scrutinized by a lot of people who deem her actions unhealthy and dangerous.
There are two different sides that people are taking. One of them is that her actions pose a real threat to her baby’s development because she could easily tear her placenta and bleed internally while lifting the heavy loads. Others believe she is doing quite well and that regular exercise could help mothers cope easily with labor and the recuperation afterwards.
Lea-Ann, however, is quite content with her photos and pregnancy overall and does not bother to address the hateful comments about her photos.
