An Australian Instagram star was left fighting back tears after her account was deleted from the app.
Sally Mustang, from Byron Bay, recently revealed she was expecting her first child with her husband, Mitch Gobel.
Following this, she uploaded an image to her page, which showed her lying naked in a bath, her growing bump on show.
Her account was removed shortly after the image was posted reportedly as it was deemed too "sexual" for the site.
In an emotional video posted to her husband's Instagram , the mum-to-be said the situation had left her "scared" for the future.
"It makes my heart so sore, and I'm really scared," she explained. "I'm five months pregnant and my whole livelihood has disappeared.
"It's my creative outlet. It's my memories. My voice, my community, my family, my businesses.
"It's all disappeared. And to be five months pregnant and adapting to all the change that's going on already it feels so unfair."
She added: "So harsh. I just want to speak up."
With over 300,000 followers before her account was taken down, Sally had plenty of support during the tough time.
Fans rallied around the expectant mum and her page has since been put back up online.
As a thank you to everyone who helped, the influencer shared a lengthy message praising her community.
It reads: "The power of a community. What a trip… @sallymustang is now back online and at the source of it all, we literally have YOU to thank for that.
"Honestly, it blows me away considering what we were up against but as individuals banding together and reaching out to our community we've brought justice to the situation.
"What I'm taking away form this is the power of presence and non-resistance to what is, to the situation. We trust, as we always do that whatever happens, does so for a good reason and although it's not always apparent in the chaos of change, we TRUST that everything will be fine – and just as it was yesterday, it is fine now.
"The other side of this has brought my attention to the fact that despite our personal opinions on Instagram's community guidelines, we do value @Instagram as a place for expression, connection, and the source of our livelihood."
She added: "Thank you all for rallying for us and speaking up for what you believe in. We're inspired and excited to continue sharing our experiences of life."
