Read Shveta Salve's post on bodyshaming:
 
 

Miracle is the first word that comes to my mind .. It still feels like only yesterday she was inside me . I felt you from the inside and today I hold you in my arms and can actually feel you and touch you with my hands. A woman's body is Magical and no wonder great artists , sculptors , poets , painters have in so many ways tried to beautify it .. But it achieves its true form of praise after this transformation. Nothing is the same like before, not my arms nor my thighs,not my breasts nor my hips , but I have never been more proud of this body of mine than now . Healthy eating and a healthy lifestyle before n after pregnancy definitely helps it to snap back closest to its original self. So be proud my fellow mommies and mommies to be.. This Journey reflects the Miracle of Life ... Remember You are Beautiful .. inside and out ! #babybump #babygirl #beforeandafter #thenandnow #mybody #mommyandbaby #bumpbirthandbeyond #preggobelly #bumpandbaby #bodytransformation #bodypositivity #pregnantbody #postdelivery #milknheels #instapic #love #aryakikahani #shvetasalve #9monthspregnant #postbabybody #aheadofthecurve

More power to you Shveta.
Earlier, Hollywood actress Anne Hathaway, whose son was born in April this year, shared a similar message with her fans. "There is no shame in gaining weight during pregnancy (or ever). There is no shame if it takes longer than you think it will to lose the weight (if you want to lose it at all). Bodies grow. Bodies shrink. It's all love (don't let anyone tell you otherwise.)"
 

Shveta married actor Hermit Sethi in 2012 and the couple welcomed their first child on August 10. Weeks before the arrival of the baby, Shveta's blog on her impending motherhood and a letter to her baby went viral.
Shveta Salve has featured in television shows like 2002's Lipstick and 2001's Kaahin Kissii Roz and was last seen in 2015's Ek Tha Chander Ek Thi Sudha. She's also featured in films like 1999's Pyaar Mein Kabhi Kabhi, 2011's Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji and 2013's Kurukshetra.
