Cardi B. is speaking up about her mental health after the birth of her son and gives a special message to other women going through the same thing as her.

Earlier this week, Cardi opened up about her experience after she and her husband Offset welcomed their son on September 4th. She tweeted, “can’t wait until these weird postpartum hormones completely leave my body. I be crying for no reason.” 

She also took to social media to address the rumors about her having a tummy tuck and encouraged other women to take their time after giving birth.  

“People have been giving me amazing compliments on my body. I think it’s because right now, I’ve got some amazing hips due to my gorgeous son because he was sitting so low. You know when your baby is low, your hips spread.”

Her post went on to say, “But everybody’s just like, ‘Cardi, you’re so snatched. What did you do? You did lipo? You had a tummy tuck?’ You cannot do surgery after you give birth, especially me. I lost so much blood, guys. One day, Imma talk to you guys about my crazy a** delivery. But anyway, yes, I look snatched. Especially when I take these paparazzi pics.” 

She went to encourage fans who also have post-pregnancy bodies to take things slow. “I’m really like this, guys. You know I like to be real with you guys, and that’s because my skin is still loose, and I still got a little pouchy pouch right here and right here. And chile, if I showed you all my back fat, and my face is still so fat and my neck–but f**k it! Take your f**king time. It’s really hard dealing with kids, especially when you do two kids. After you give birth, chile!”
