On November 29, Jana Kramer announced that she and husband, Mike Caussin, had welcomed a baby boy, Jace Joseph Caussin, into the world. Now, just one week later, Jana is facing some criticism for…wait for it…looking too good after giving birth. Yes, seriously.

Jana took to her Instagram a few days after giving birth to share a photo of her and husband Mike wearing a matching ensemble, and some fans commented that she looked incredible— while some trolls left a few nasty comments that sent Jana over the edge.

So, the following day, she shared a cropped-in selfie where she almost shows her post-baby belly, along with a caption explaining why she decided not to. “A few things because honestly I’m so frustrated and I need to vent this,” she started.

“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 the photo is now cropped.”

She went on to shut down a few rumors posted on her previous photo.

“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 every day. 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, a c-section)…in that photo, I had a belly bandit wrapped tightly and high waisted pants. And wow, here I am defending myself. Why?!?”

Jana then began asking the question of why women don’t show themselves (and each other) some grace.

“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 said.

“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 beautiful and created 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 looking a certain way?”

She closed with a few suggestions for women:

“Can we be kinder to ourselves and know that every woman 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.”
