Friends cruelly blast mum for going out with a full face of make-up four days after giving birth

A MUM claims she was trolled by her friends after posting a photo with her newborn all dolled up in a restaurant – just four days after giving birth.

Sophie Attwood, 27, welcomed daughter Isla Josephine Lewis via c-section – while wearing a full face of make-up.

Haven’t slept in four days and I’m in agony behind the smile but I’m officially OUT of the house. #babysfirstouting #newborn

And just four days after giving birth on January 19, Sophie shared a photo of herself looking equally as glamorous at a restaurant with her fiancé, Daniel Lewis.

She was taken aback when she was inundated with nasty messages from people – including her friends – who questioned why she was out of the house so quickly.

Proud of herself after she managed to leave the house despite being sleep deprived, she posted online: "Haven’t slept in four days and I’m in agony behind the smile but I’m officially OUT of the house.

"I was going stir crazy! It’s so frustrating with a c section as your brain is totally fine and you want to get out and explore with your wonderful new person – but alas, your body hurts so much."

Multi-tasking 😏 #mumlife

Sophie, from Staffordshire, says the trip helped her avoid "cabin fever" by getting out of the "newborn bubble".

But she received a backlash from people, who also questioned why she was wearing make-up and high heeled boots so soon after having Isla, who was slightly premature and weighed 5lbs 11oz.

Sophie told the Mail: “I received direct messages like, ‘Why the hell are you out of the house so soon? Take time, you need to spend this time with your baby’.

The risky move where winding can quickly escalate to sick in hair stage. 😷 #parenting

"'Four days and you have a full face of make-up?! Lol where do your priorities lie?’ and ‘you have the rest of your life to go out and you're spending these first few precious days in a restaurant! Ridiculous!’

“My friends began comparing themselves to me and saying that they felt pressured to do what I was doing, but I told them it just gave me a sense of normality and made me feel human again!”

Totally abandoned @drlewis82 today for our motorway journey to sit in the back with Isla. When will I stop thinking that every little grunt is her choking if I can’t see her? 🙄😬 #newmum

She added there’s no "right or wrong" way of doing things, and everyone should do what they feel is best for them.

The PR managing director claims make-up is her "war paint", and she even spent 15 minutes topping up her make-up on the way to the hospital – while having contractions.

She said it made her feel as if she was “preparing for battle”, as she endured an eight-hour labour and then an emergency cesarean as Isla was in breech.

And she left hospital the same way she entered – in a full face of make-up – admitting she got some "dodgy" looks from other parents.

Sophie says she put some thought into how she would announce her daughter to her 10,600 followers on Instagram, even flicking through the social media site for inspiration during labour.

She admitted she felt “pressure” to look good immediately after birth, although after welcoming her daughter she confirmed she waited a few hours before posting anything.

Sophie isn’t alone, as new mums are hiring make-up artists and applying fake lashes during labour.

And we recently shared one mum-to-be asked where the bumpiest roads are so she can try and induce her labour.

While this single woman used a sperm donor to conceive her two children, and says she doesn't need a man to be a good mum.
