She welcomed her third child two months ago.

Giovanna Fletcher has never shied away from sharing her honest experience of motherhood.

Yes, the mum-of-three has built a career around speaking about her experience and has continued to do so since welcoming her third child two months ago.

Today it was the turn of embracing her post-baby body and learning to dress for it again.

“I’m currently at a very odd post-pregnancy stage where my clothes usually make me feel ‘poo, nothing fits’,” Giovanna said on Instagram earlier.

“My maternity wear makes me look pregnant still and my ‘normal’ clothes either don’t do up or create all sorts of interesting lumps and bumps.

“I’m 10 weeks in and thankfully not berating my body after its wonderful job of bringing another healthy child into my life.”

However, Giovanna says today is different. Showing off her cute pink dungarees, the mum-of-three said today’s outfit has her feeling herself again.

“But today this outfit has made me feel good.

“I smile every time I look down or catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror.”

Last month, Giovanna also spoke out about her mental health struggles after pregnancy, revealing to fans that she wasn’t feeling herself for quite a while.

“I have found myself saying, ‘I’m not feeling myself, but it’s fine. I’m fine.’

“Hmm… I’m fine but sometimes I don’t want to get out of bed in the morning. I don’t want to get dressed. I don’t want to see people. I don’t want to do anything.

“I’m fine but I’ve been crying for no reason and occasionally can’t seem to stop.

“I’m not feeling myself right now but I’ve just had a baby and my hormones are all over the shop and playing havoc with my emotions.

“I’m not feeling myself right now but I’ve just welcomed my third baby into the world and am so incredibly lucky.”
