Hilaria Baldwin shared an image of her post-baby body to Instagram but it hasn’t gone down well with some fans.
ICYMI Hilaria Baldwin has just welcomed her fourth child with her husband Alec Baldwin, a son named Romeo.
In a bid to try and ‘normalise the post-partum figure’ Hilaria shared a candid mirror selfie taken just 24 hours after giving birth.
“I always post a photo in this mirror in my hospital room within 24 hours after having my babies,” she wrote in the accompanying caption.
“My purpose here is to normalise 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.
“We all come in different shapes, sizes and health experiences…but given the right love and care, we can feel really good within our skin. We just have to be patient and kind with our bodies.”
I always post a photo in this mirror in my hospital room within 24 hours after having my babies (except with Carmen…I was too much of a nervous first time mama ). I wanted to hold off the other day out of respect for the school shooting. I took this photo, Friday, the morning after this new baby was born. 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. You all came with me through my pregnancy…now it’s time to turn back into me. We all come in different shapes, sizes, and health experiences…but given the right love and care, we can feel really good within our skin. We just have to be patient and kind with our bodies. I’ll post my last two postpartum photos (Rafa and Leo) in my stories, so you can remember how we did this before. They are not glamorous, there is no filter, and I have a super sleepy face…but they are part of my real journey. 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

After promising to share her previous post-partum selfies, she signed off her post “I have so much respect and admiration for the human body…I hope that intention shines through and we can insire each other to be healthier and happier.”
Some women praised the mum-of-four for her bravery in sharing the unfiltered post.
“Thanks always for keeping it real,” one fan wrote.
“Thanks…sooo many young mothers aren’t aware the human body is resilient when treated properly,” added another.
“So happy to see somebody relevant share this empowering message,” another fan commented.
But not everyone agreed that the image was conveying the message Hilaria claimed and some people believed instead it added to the post-baby body pressure.
“I don’t think this is normalising the post-partum figure,” one user wrote. “Most women are not wearing a sexy looking black bra and underwear the day after they give birth. To each his own BUT I don’t think this post is normalising anything.”
“Would not be doing this one day after delivering a child. Too many other things to think about. Most women do not look like this after delivery so I’m not sure if this is helping anyone but yourself,’ another woman added.
“She is such a narcissist! The only reason she is posting these pictures is for everyone to say how wonderful she looks,” another user commented.
What do you think? Realistic portrayal of port-partum life or slightly off? Let us know…
