This beautiful Mum sheds 7 stone after being told she was TOO FAT for water birth: ‘I was mortified’

A young woman who was so overweight she was advised not to have a water birth in case she got stuck has shed a whopping 7st in just 12 months.
Stunning Rachel Reid, 25, started her weight loss journey in January this year after nurses said she was too fat for a water birth.
At her heaviest the mum-of-two, from East Kilbride, Scotland, tipped the scales at 17st and was wearing a size 22 dress.

Rachel said: “I was miserable with myself and I didn’t feel beautiful or pretty at all.

“I was a chubby child and I would binge eat. I could regularly finished a whole pack of biscuits in one go and I would eat snacks in secret.

“Things came to an embarrassing head for me when I fell pregnant with my second child.

“I had my heart set on a water birth but I was mortified when the nurse told me that my BMI was over 40 and meant I was too heavy for one- as if something went wrong, they wouldn’t be able to get me out of the birthing pool.
