Fitness influencer Tammy Hembrow has caused a frenzy among her fans by showcasing a pregnancy belly prank. In her latest TikTok, Hembrow sucked in her 24-week pregnant belly to show off a perfectly flat stomach. The video was paired with the viral song, Poof Be Gone, by KyleYouMadeThat.


Fans were not only confused but also scared for the baby's health. They brought up how the bracing technique could be injurious during a pregnancy.

Hembrow reassured her fans that her exercises do not harm her baby, and are a part of her regular regime. She commented:

“It’s actually recommended bracing your core like this throughout pregnancy, especially since I train a lot. Bubby is just fine!"

In another comment, she said:

"I have to do it when I train, super good for your core doing it throughout pregnancy.”

The trick used by Hembrow is an age-old posing technique used by bodybuilders, where they exhale to tighten their abdomen, resulting in the organs in that area shifting upwards creating a small midriff.

Most of her content revolves around staying fit through pregnancies. She rose to fame after documenting her fitness journey post her first pregnancy. She recorded her changing body and the regime she followed to keep up with it.
