Motherhood is surely bliss. There is nothing purer than the feeling of being a mother, on this earth. Bollywood divas are famous not only to rock the ramps but also for their pregnancy transactions. Recently, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani fame Kalki Koechlin who had her first baby with boyfriend Guy Hershberg earlier this month has shared an adorable picture of her daughter Sappho and every new-mom can relate to it.
Kalki shared a cute picture with her munchkin Sappho, sleeping on her, with a caption, "The past few weeks have really been a state of sleep-deprived bliss." The actress then thanked the cameraperson for the "perfect photo": "Thanks for the perfect photo, Salome Rebello."
Her Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara co-star Hrithik Roshan commented 'Beautiful' on the picture. Kalki's girl gang ace designer Masaba Gupta and actress Shruti Seth also showered their love over the picture.
Earlier this month, Koechlin also posted a picture of little Sappho with her dad which left the fans in awe. She wrote, "My Guy and my girl. Not much of a Hallmark consumer but this Valentine's I'm feeling particularly gushy, for obvious reasons. Guy, I couldn't ask for more, you are always more..."
Kalki even kept her fan updated during her pregnancy period by sharing pictures from her maternity diary. Before her child delivery, she shared a picture with Doula, which in Greek implied as woman's maid and support system during the childbirth. She wrote, "The word comes from the ancient Greeks and meant 'a woman's maid', it is now a support system of women for women during the process of pregnancy, labour and post partem care. I didnt know about the function of a doula myself until I got pregnant. No matter how much you read up, prepare or ask your doctor, there are challenges in childbirth that one can only know from experience and practice."

Doula. I can't experience childbirth and not talk about this word. The word comes from the ancient Greeks and meant 'a woman's maid', it is now a support system of women for women during the process of pregnancy, labour and post partem care. I didnt know about the function of a doula myself until I got pregnant. No matter how much you read up, prepare or ask your doctor, there are challenges in childbirth that one can only know from experience and practice. A doula provides massages, breathing techniques and excercises during active labour, other support like hypnobirthing, a birth plan for the hospital, your first bonding with your baby, breastfeeding and so many other essentials which believe me, when you're a first time mum, feel like your first day at a new school all over again! In this photo I'm with my doula @newbeginningzz in the 'transitional' phase of labour, when you are almost ready to push the baby out and contractions are at their peak. For me it was by far the hardest part (so it's quite appropriate that the picture is a blur), and without Sanam's strong hands and steady voice guiding me through the breathing I'm not sure I would've been able to bear it. I've also had unbelievable support from @reba_beingalive a doula from @birthvillageindia who's constantly checking on me and making sure I'm not alone through all this. #sisterhood #doula #hypnobirthing #waterbirth #womenforwomen #pregnancy
