Recently, lingerie and fitness model Sarah Stage posted an Instagram photo of herself in a red bikini at nine months pregnant.

Her tummy had the slightest bulge, like she’d just enjoyed a big pasta lunch.

One month after giving birth to her second child by C-section, she posted another photo of herself in her white Calvin Klein bra and panties. She stood sideways to the camera to show her taut, tiny tummy.

“The combination of breastfeeding and following my nutrition guide from my website has gotten me to my pre baby weight, however we all have our own personal fitness goals and mine is to build more muscle,” she wrote. “How long did you wait until you started working out after baby?”

The 33-year-old social media star has drawn fire during her pregnancy for posting photos of her no-belly pregnancy, made possible by the workout regimen she continued to follow. That’s how she earned her nickname, “six-pack mom.”

Stage and other pregnant celebrities who have become part of the no-bump trend continue to raise concerns among fans and physicians who worry that images of pregnant celebrities who don’t look pregnant set up unrealistic expectations for ordinary mothers-to-be.

Some doctors have criticized the media for continuing to showcase celebrity moms and their tiny bumps, seemingly glorifying the look.

Gaining weight during pregnancy is natural and normal, doctors say, and dieting during pregnancy can put women at risk for premature delivery and babies with low birth weights.
