Caroline Berg Eriksen, a Norwegian blogger and journalist, is receiving some pretty harsh criticism after she posted a picture of herself in underwear just four days after giving birth. As reported by ABC News via Yahoo! on Dec. 2, Caroline Berg Eriksen is married to soccer player Lars-Kristian Eriksen and she has the biggest fitness blog in Norway.

When asked why she posted the controversial photo showing her flat stomach and toned hips, she explained to ABC: "During the pregnancy, people kept telling me that my body will never be the same and I wanted to show everybody that's not entirely true," Berg Eriksen, 26, said.

Shortly after posting the selfie on Instagram where she is seen posing in front of a mirror in her underwear, she caused outrage in Norway. A few angry Facebook users even labeled the photo as being "wildly provocative."

The blogger responded to criticism on Facebook by saying that she posted the image because she was proud of herself for maintaining her shape after going through something as hard as pregnancy.

She wrote: "I think all women should be proud of themselves, regardless of how they look after labor."
