Taking a strong stand against trolls over her breastfeeding picture, Evelyn Sharma says ‘Breastfeeding is natural, why to be shy about it’
On Instagram, B-town actress Evelyn Sharma posted an image of herself nursing her 2-month-old daughter, Ava Bhindi, and talked about cluster feeding becoming a part of her daily routine. Her previous post of a similar picture was well-received a month ago. Netizens took offense to her pictures and slammed her for posting her private photos on social media.
The ‘YJHD’ actress while talking to a publication defended herself saying, “I want to share my journey as a new mother with my friends and fans.”. It’s important for me to keep my social media person and not just a work profile.” Addressing the trolling that breastfeeding pictures of mothers get, the 35-year-old said, “Such images show vulnerability and strength at the same time. I find it beautiful.
Breastfeeding is one of the most natural and healthy things to do. And it really is why women have breasts in the first place. So why be shy about it?” Evelyn hopes that the post will be able to encourage young mothers and even nudge their partners to be more supportive: “Breastfeeding is much tougher than people think. When you start out as a new mum, it is often physically and mentally exhausting, particularly cluster feeds.
I shared my story to let mums out there know that they aren’t alone in this.” Talking about newly embracing motherhood, Evelyn said “There’s a statue in Mumbai that says, ‘A child gives birth to a mother’. I’ve passed by it almost daily and it left me confused every time. Now I understand what it means. Motherhood has changed my life forever.”Evelyn Sharma gave birth to her daughter Ava on November 12, 2021.
The actress got married to Tushaan Bhindi who is a Sydney-based dental surgeon on May 15, 2021, in Brisbane, Australia. She appeared in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Yaariyan, Jab Harry Met Sejal, and Kuch Kuch Locha Hai. Evelyn’s last movie was Saaho.
