Hilaria Baldwin shows off her figure 1 day after giving birth and hopes to 'normalize postpartum figure'
Hilaria Baldwin hopes to normalize idea of postpartum body and thus decided to take a move of posting a picture of her postpartum figure.
Hilaria Baldwin is not afraid of gaining weight after having her baby and wants people to know the same. With help of social media, she is trying to make a statement and let people know that it is alright to gain couple of pounds when you are expecting.
Hilaria and her husband Alec Baldwin welcomed their fourth child on Thursday (May 17) and less than a day after welcoming their little one, she took to Instagram to share a mirror selfie taken in her underwear.
She also shared snaps to her Instagram story which were taken shortly after she welcomed her two other sons — Leonardo Ángel Charles, 20 months, and Rafael Thomas, 3 next month.
“I always post a photo in this mirror in my hospital room within 24 hours after having my babies (except with [daughter Carmen Gabriela, 4½] … I was too much of a nervous first-time mama) … I took this photo, Friday, the morning after this new baby was born,” she wrote.
“My purpose here is to normalize the postpartum figure and over the next days, weeks, and months, show you how I strengthen my body and return to my non-pregnant self,” she further explained. “You all came with me through my pregnancy … now it’s time to turn back to me.”
Hilaria added that it is important for people to give oneself “the right love and care” and emphasized how each body is different. "We all come in different shapes, sizes and health experiences," she added. “They are not glamorous, there is no filter, and I have a super sleepy face … but they are part of my real journey," she noted. “I have so much respect and admiration for the human body … I hope that intention shines through and we can inspire each other to be healthier and happier. #wegotthis2018”
This is not the first time that Hilaria has spoken about self-love. She posted a side by side picture from the time she had her son Leo to her weight loss journey. “People will ask me all the time what my regimen is after having a baby. I’ll tell you: it’s nothing crazy,” she wrote. “It’s about balance and consistency.”
