Victoria Beckham Is Suffering A Back Injury! Is Her Obsession With High Heels To Blame?

Friends say the new mom’s in so much agony, she can’t pick up her newborn daughter Harper Seven!

Victoria Beckham‘s baby joy was short lived — the fashion icon is laid up in bed after suffering a slipped disc just before she gave birth last month! Does she only have herself to blame?

“She has had an X-ray which showed she has slipped a disc in her lower back. Victoria is in a lot of pain and even struggling to hold Harper,” a source tells British newspaper The Sun.

“She is really down about the whole thing as she just wants to be able to play with her daughter like any new mum.”

“When she goes to breastfeed, David has to basically prop-up the baby. But Victoria is trying to remain upbeat because she really does feel so blessed with the birth of her beautiful daughter. She is determined not to let this injury overshadow the happiness surrounding Harper’s arrival.”

Slipped discs are fairly common among pregnant women, but friends tell the Daily Mail the style icon is to blame for her injury — because she refused to swap high heels for flats during her pregnancy!

And experts insists she should have ditched her heels as soon as she felt pain. British TV doctor Chris Steele tells the Daily Mail, “She should not have been wearing high heels if there was any back pain at all. I have also seen her carrying rather large, heavy handbags, and this too is not good for the spine as it puts too much pressure on it.”

We hope Victoria gets well soon — it must be agony for her not to be able to hold her baby daughter!

Are we right to sympathize, HollyMoms? Or should she have known better?
