In her post, the mom admitted she felt a little anxious about her body, but her supportive followers wrote encouraging comments to reassure her that she’d be fine. Here’s what some of them wrote:

You are beautiful in any shape or form. You’re such an amazing human being that has brought three angles to this world😍😘 you’ll get to your old body in no time, time flies!

hanging there, it takes time you can do it. Been there too, and i do lot exercise especially sit up after the girls almost 10months i start go gym

You are beautiful. You have done a truly amazing thing, don't be hard on yourself! ♥️

Don’t beat yourself up, I still looked fully pregnant after my triplets , so much so when people saw me out without the babies as they were still in hospital I got asked when I was due on more than one occasion. Don’t rush it , the skin and muscles need it to be a slow progression. I for one think you look great

You’re an amazing woman! Your body is beautiful for it brought 3 beautiful babies into this world. You don’t have any stretch marks which is remarkable after carrying triplets.

Oh, the marvel of a woman’s body! It’s so amazing precisely because of its resilience, and if it has a way to accommodate three babies (or even more), it also has a way to recover. We wish Maria a fast, seamless recovery and a happy journey with her triplets, husband Anders, and son Mikael.
