New moms, take notes

Normally after celebrities give birth, we say to ourselves, “WHERE?” Because most of the time, they snap right back into shape. With all of the personal trainers and plastic surgeons at their beck and call, celebs waste no time getting their sexy back.

Athlete Stephanie Rothstein Bruce is a professional runner and mother of two, who, after giving birth to her second child, became an example of what really happens to your body after pregnancy. Her pre-pregnancy abs vanished and she developed diastasis recti, a condition in which her large abdominal muscles separated. But she didn’t let that discourage her. The 32 year old was determine to rebuild her strength and core.

She told PEOPLE, “It was really hard physically on my body and mentally, and as I was going through some things trying to get back into training, I was like, ‘Does this happen to all women?’ No one told me all of this. So as it was happening to me, I felt like I just wanted to be real about it, and put it out there.”
