Not even two weeks after Jana Kramer gave birth to her second child, she is taking to her Instagram to defend her post baby body.

Late last week Jana had posted a picture of her and her husband, Mike Caussin, and received a lot of backlash over it for looking "too good" after having a baby.

While most of the comments were positive and encouraging her post baby weight, it was the negative backlash that have been weighing down on Jana.

Even though Jana had a small figure before her pregnancy and continued to post her work out videos in the nine months that followed, people accused her of taking "short cuts" to slim down quicker. You can check out the picture that started all of the drama and the full caption on Jana's Instagram, but here is a snip of her post-baby body shaming rebuttal below.

A few things because honestly I’m so frustrated and I need to vent this. I wanted to post this photo (showing my stomach) because I wanted to show my journey back to healthy and my goodness I’m so glad I didn’t which is why this photo is now cropped. It’s amazing the comments and how rude some people can be from my last photo I took yesterday. A few things, no I didn’t get a tummy tuck, no I don’t have a personal chef, no I don’t have fortunes so I didn’t train everyday. Yes I had a c section, yes I am still in pain and on meds but I do have a high pain tolerance. I have had 3 stomach surgeries before this (appendix, gallbladder, and c section).. In that photo I had a belly bandit wrapped tightly, and high waisted pants and wow here I am defending myself. Why?!? If I would have posted the photo of my actual stomach in this photo I would have probably been shamed too even when I was wanting to be vulnerable with my journey. Why do we women have to compare ourselves to each other and then shame?. I say this to myself as much as I say this to y’all...why can’t it be that we are all different. Our bodies are all beautiful and crafted differently, they heal different, they react different, they simply look different. Why do we need to shame someone for not looking a certain way? Or feel bad about ourselves for looking a certain way? Can we be kinder to ourselves and know that every women has a different journey but yet we are all beautiful? Can we lift women up but not tear yourself down in the process with comparing? Let’s give that a try.....I love y’all. Back to my baby.

To quote Jana on body shaming, "Can we be kinder to ourselves and know that every women has a different journey but yet we are all beautiful? Can we lift women up but not tear yourself down in the process with comparing? Let’s give that a try...."

Well said Jana.. Keep doing you girl!
