Having a baby can wreak havoc on any body, which is why we’re collectively applauding Yoga Vida instructor and author of The Living Clearly Method (and yes, wife of actor Alec), Hilaria Baldwin.

Just this week, she captured a raw depiction of what her post-pregnancy body looked like just 24-hours after giving birth to third child, Leonardo, showing the world that body fluctuation after childbirth is crazy normal (and even beautiful).

It takes a certain level of courage and bravery to post something so transparent, especially immediately after bringing new life into the world. It’s no secret body-shaming runs rampant on social media so we MAJORLY appreciate Hilaria’s positive use of the Internet to bring awareness with these photos.

Oh, and Hilaria got real with us again with this post directly after the birth:

We’re grateful for the realness here because it’s important to know all bodies are beautiful before giving birth, after, and always. Congrats, Hilaria! Keep bringing the awesome!
