Body-shaming is not welcome here. Jana Kramer shut down trolls who criticized her post-baby body one week after she gave birth to her second child, son Jace.

“A few things because honestly I’m so frustrated and I need to vent this,” the One Tree Hill alum, 35, wrote on Instagram on Saturday, December 8. “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 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.

Kramer posted a pic on Friday, December 7, in which she showed off a slimmer figure while posing next to husband Mike Caussin. The couple, who are also parents of daughter Jolie, 2, welcomed their baby boy on November 29.

“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,” she continued in defense of herself. “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 on a belly bandit wrapped tightly, and high waisted pants and wow here I am defending myself. Why?!?”

The country singer went on to explain why she didn’t share a shot of her bare belly on social media. “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,” she noted. “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.”

Kramer concluded: “Why do we need to shame someone for not looking a certain way? Or feel bad about ourselves for not looking a certain way? Can we be kinder to ourselves and know that every women [sic] has a different journey but yet we are all beautiful? Can we lift women up but not tear yourself down in the process of comparing? Let’s give that a try…..I love y’all. Back to my baby.”

The “I’ve Done Love” songstress, who recorded a live podcast during Jace’s birth, shared her excitement with Us upon his arrival after suffering several miscarriages. “Our hearts are so full. And we are so thankful for our sweet rainbow baby boy,” she said on November 29. “We have been through quite the journey and we can’t wait to continue it as a family of four!”

Kramer also opened up about how Jolie is adjusting to the new addition. “She is incredible. I was nervous because when I held other babies before, she’d be like, ‘No!’” the “Whine Down” podcast host told Us on Tuesday, December 4. “But she wants to hold Jace all the time. She’s really helpful. She says ‘Jace!’ and ‘My brother!’ And she’s just exceeded every expectation.”
