Mum With Six-Pack Ab's Struggles To Give Birth

Famous for her Instagram pictures that highlighted how she maintained a high level of fitness during her pregnancy, Chontel Duncan has now revealed that having such strong stomach muscles resulted in her having an emergency c-section to deliver her son Jeremiah.

The former Miss Universe contestant has revealed:

“They struggled to rip Jeremiah from my tummy as my abs locked him in super tight as I began vomiting during the operation”

“This is why my scar was cut up on my right side because the surgeon had to cut me further an use forceps to successfully get Jeremiah out. Perhaps a down side to a strong core.”

[Part 2] I CRIED I felt like I failed... but then @sam_hiitaustralia reminded me of my mantra which was "to go through all means necessary so baby feels nothing" & I smiled. With confidence I signed the forms & within 20mins had my baby in my arms. They struggled to rip Jeremiah from my tummy as my abs locked him in super tight as I began vomiting during the operation. This is why my scar was cut up on my right side because the surgeon had to cut me further an use forceps to successfully get Jeremiah out. Perhaps a down side to a strong core 🤔 I healed according to my doctor normally, my scar isn't small, it's quiet large & I can feel in the centre scar tissue, I tried Bepanthen Scar Treatment & Skincerity breathable masque an this is what I have been left with. I would love 3 more children & I will always try for a vaginal birth with each one. So to all the women out there wearing a cesarean scar, I am VERY proud of what mine means & for the beautiful gift I received through mine. They are memories of the day we all became mummies 💙💚💛❤️💜

The Queensland-based personal trainer gave birth to baby Jeremiah in March, via an emergency caesarean. Although she had planned to give birth naturally, her plan was to “go through all means necessary so baby feels nothing”, and when doctors recommended the surgery she immediately signed the forms.

“Within 20 minutes I had my baby in my arms,” she wrote.
