Influencer Ruby Tuesday Matthews reveals her postpartum body just days after giving birth as she speaks of the pressure to ‘bounce back’

Byron Bay influencer Ruby Tuesday Matthews has opened up about the pressure to ‘look good’ soon after giving birth.

The 27-year-old admitted she ‘hated her body’ after welcoming her eldest son Rocket but she’d learnt to ‘be kind to herself’ following the birth of her third child last month.

‘I woke up to a bunch of messages this morning saying how great I look for just having a baby. So Just a little reminder to mamas and new mamas to be kind on yourself,’ she wrote on Instagram.

‘All of our journeys are different. I’m still 20kg heavier and just taking each day as it comes,’ she added.

Ruby also shared a photo of herself taken just four days after giving birth to her son Rocket. 

‘This was me four days PP. I remember after having Rocket I hated my body and the way I looked. I used to look in the mirror and cry. Change is hard especially when you lose your old self (and wardrobe),’ she wrote.

‘This time I’m a lot more relaxed and I trust that my body will do its thing if I nourish it and eat whole healthy foods. Please be kind on yourself. There’s no rush.’

Ruby continued: ‘When you become a mumma, you completely lose yourself and then slowly build yourself into a stronger, wiser more patient woman. It’s really a blessing that at times can be hard to see.’

The model welcomed a daughter named Holiday Dodd, her first child with fiancé Shannan Dodd and third overall, last month.

It’s unclear when exactly Ruby and Shannan began dating, but loved-up Instagram photos of the pair began appearing in May 2021.

The couple announced their engagement in June that year.
