Since the moment Jamie Otis Hehner announced her pregnancy, she has been extremely honest about every aspect of it.

The Married At First Sight star, who met her husband, Doug Hehner, on their wedding day in 2014, announced her second pregnancy in February.

The couple had been pregnant in summer 2016, but tragically lost their son, Johnathan, when Jamie was four months along. Since her “rainbow baby” announcement, she chronicled everything about her pregnancy up until giving birth to daughter Henley Grace on August 22.

Now that Jamie and Doug have brought their little girl home, Jamie has continued to share the truths of motherhood with her followers.

While many of her Instagram posts and stories have touched upon the struggles and realities of breastfeeding — on Saturday, August 26 she wrote that her boobs were “on fire & bleeding” — she also shared an honest picture of her postpartum body.

The 31-year-old, who appeared on Ben Flajnik’s season of The Bachelor, posted a full body photo just four days after giving birth. “I love every bit of my postpartum bod,” she captioned the photo of her in white shorts and a tank top. “It's truly amazing how my body helped create & carry an 8 lb 2 oz baby. I'm feelin' like I can conquer the WORLD after pushing her out. Women are SO much stronger than we give ourselves credit for.”

Jamie’s followers went wild for her “outfit of the day” photo. One commenter wrote, “thank you for making postpartum look REAL and making the rest of us feel ok with it #theworldneedsmorecelebritieslikeyou.” While another commented, “You are beautiful! It's amazing to see women that love being new mommies, and enjoy how they look.”
