New Delhi:

Alia Bhatt, who welcomed daughter Raha last month, shared an extensive post on body positivity and her postpartum journey. Sharing a picture of herself doing aerial yoga, the actress wrote: “One and a half months post-partum, after gradually re-building my connection with my core, and with full guidance from my teacher Anshuka, I was able to attempt this inversion today. To my fellow mamas, listening to your body post delivery is key. Do not do anything your gut tells you not to.” The actress added, “For the first week or two during my workouts, all I did was breathe… walk… find my stability and balance again (and I still have a long way to go).” The actress wrote about embracing body positivity and wrote: “Take your time – appreciate what your body has done. After what my body did this year I have taken a vow to never be hard on myself again. Childbirth is a miracle in every way, and giving your body that love and support that it gave you is the least we can do.” She signed off the post with these words: “PS – every body is different – pls speak to your doctor before doing anything that involves exercise.”

This is what Alia Bhatt posted:
