For most women, expecting a baby is delightful news, and so it is only natural that you want to film and document just how your body is changing.
So Louise Thompson was left baffled when Instagram chose to remove a photo of her burgeoning baby bump after it ‘broke community guidelines’.
Made in Chelsea star Louise, 31, announced she was expecting her first child with fiancé Ryan Libbey earlier this year.
Having told her followers she was expecting a baby boy, Louise has given fans a glimpse into her life as she gets ready for her new arrival.
Posting to her Instagram story, the reality star posted a snap of herself lying in bed, her breasts covered, as she showed off her baby bump.
But Louise then revealed that Instagram had since forcibly deleted the snap, citing “sexual solicitation”.
In a later post to her feed, Louise expressed her irritation at the snap having been removed, screenshotting the notification she received from Instagram.
“Shocked that Instagram removed a story of my pregnant body because it goes against community guidelines,” she wrote.
“Soz if anyone found that offensive.”
A spokesperson for Facebook (the company who own Instagram) since told Tyla: “Louise’s Story was reported by other users and removed in error but we very quickly restored it. This kind of image is absolutely allowed on Instagram and we’re sorry for the mistake.”
Louise previously announced her pregnancy in March this year, with her new arrival due in just a few months time.
The happy news comes after Louise spoke candidly about previously suffering a miscarriage.
“Whilst all those incredible things are happening for people there is also a great deal of SH*T going on behind closed doors - A side that you might not see,” she wrote.
"I don't know why I feel the need to keep justifying this post, I definitely don't, I think I'm a bit scared because it's so raw and slightly out of my comfort zone.
"I guess it's also because there is no easy way to say it, nor any way to sugar coat it, but earlier this year we lost our baby and it was HARD.
“I found it very comforting to talk to [friends] about their experiences of loss and grief, and I also found it incredibly comforting to learn that there isn't really much you can do to prevent it from happening.
“I don't feel any guilt or blame for what happened to me. It just wasn't meant to be, and hopefully, it will create space for something beautiful in the future.”
