Photo of Flat Tummy Mom Causing Controversy Online

Posted: Updated:

A photo of a fitness blogger is making waves online because she took it just three days after giving birth.

New mom Caroline Eriksen shows off her flat tummy in the photo saying she is shocked by how quickly her body bounced back after gaining 22 pounds during pregnancy.

Many women can hardly believe this is real and the picture has sparked a firestorm online.

"I think we need to put this all on a spectrum and realize that we should applaud the women who look great but we shouldn't bash the women who can't achieve that," says ABC News Health Correspondent Dr. Jennifer Ashton.

Eriksen says she didn't post the photo to be cruel. She says she did it because she misses her baby bump.
