Terrie McEvoy has hit back at mum-shamer after she was rudely questioned by an Instagram follower about taking maternity leave.

During a Q&A session, a follower asked her: “Are you planning on taking some maternity leave to bond and enjoy your newborn?”

Clearly irked by the question, Terrie replied:

“I have been bonding and enjoying my baby girl since the moment she arrived. How rude”

“I work when she sleeps and I feel absolutely blessed that I’ve been able to manage and balance everything so well.”

“If I felt I was struggling I would of course stop but right now I’m enjoying every minute of the life that I’ve built/am building.”

The new mum recently launched a new fashion business venture with Suzanne Jackson.

Mantra is a 14 piece boot collection that launched online on Wednesday. Working hard ahead of the launch, she also recently graduated from Royal College of Surgeons with a First Class Honours in Advanced Leadership in Nursing.

She shared pictures of her home-graduation wearing a graduation gown and a mortarboard hat, while holding both her new born baby and a celebratory glass of juice.

The 31-year-old welcomed her first child, a daughter named Sydney, with her husband David Fitzpatrick on November 5th.

Terrie announced the arrival of her daughter by sharing a gorgeous black and white snap of herself, her baby and her husband, that appears to have been taken just moments after Sydney was born via emergency C-section.

“The beginning of the rest of our lives. Our hearts are ready to burst with love and gratitude. Welcome to the world baby girl,” she captioned the image.

Days after her birth, the 31-year-old told her followers about the emergency Caesarean Section.

“Baby Sydney is here, and she’s safe and she’s well thank god,” she told her followers.

“The last week and a half have been an absolute rollercoaster, but it’s just been the best thing ever I can’t even tell you.”

The travel and beauty influencer thanked followers for sending their well wishes.

“Obviously there [were] some complications, which was so scary at the time, ugh God it was just awful.”

“But my plan all along was to just get baby here safe no matter what happened, I was willing to do anything,” she confessed, before thanking maternity staff at the Rotunda.

“So it wasn’t ideal to have the C-section so quick and for it all to happen at once, but I’m just so grateful for the staff in the Rotunda.”

“I’m so grateful that they knew what to do and how to manage the situation and that she’s here safe.”

“The midwives are angels on earth, especially the ones in theatre,” Terrie, who is a nurse herself said.

“I was a bag of nerves going in for the C-section cause obviously being a nurse being on the other side is really tough.”

Terrie wed her long time love David in sunny Portugal in September 2019. The former nurse announced her pregnancy back in May with some adorable pictures of herself and her husband holding a tiny baby-gro that read “Mommy and Daddy’s new travel buddy.”
