Despite a disclaimer reminding people she is a professional with 30 years of training behind her, and therefore not your typical new mum, Bridges has been criticised for posting her post-natal workout online.

After receiving questions from other mums asking what training she has been doing since giving birth one month ago, Bridges uploaded a post replying that she has started jogging.    #MBactive only available @bigwaustraliaA photo posted by Michelle Bridges (@mishbridges) on Jan 11, 2016 at 4:35pm PST

Given that new mums are generally advised against running for three months after birth, the response to the post was unsurprising.

“If an individual decides to jog soon after giving birth, this is their choice,” Women In Focus Physiotherapy posted to their Facebook page on Friday.

“However as a public figure encouraging women who’s [sic] body types, birth and fitness histories are unknown, to start jogging is quite frankly concerning. It could potentially cause a woman more harm than good in these early stages, especially to the pelvic floor and the ligaments that support the bladder, uterus and bowel.”
