Actress Kajal Aggarwal wrote a long note about her experience of giving birth to her son on Tuesday. She took to Instagram on Thursday and shared about the child’s baby’s birth, the sleepless nights she’s had, and still, enjoying the company of her baby. Kajal posted an image of herself, from when she was pregnant, with the post.

In her note, Kajal talked about the feeling of holding Neil in her arms for the first time. “Excited and elated to welcome my baby Neil into this world. Our birthing was exhilarating, overwhelming, long, yet the most satisfying experience there could be! Holding Neil upon my chest covered with white mucous membrane and placenta within seconds of his birth has been my only tryst with self actualisation and such an indescribable feeling! That one moment made me understand the deepest potential of love, made me feel tremendous amount of gratitude and realise the responsibility of my heart outside of my body – forever – and all at the same time,” she wrote.

She added that becoming a mother is not without its challenges. “Of course, it’s not been easy- 3 sleepless nights that bleed into early mornings, learning to latch and burp, squishy bellies and stretched skin, frozen pads, breast pumps, uncertainty, constant worry if you’re doing it all right, all topped with dozes of anxiety,” she said.

“But it’s also moments like these – Sweet cuddles in the wee hours of the morning, gazing into each other’s eyes with a look of confident recognition, adorable little kisses, the quiet moments when it’s just the two of us, growing, learning, discovering each other and navigating this wonderful journey together. In reality, postpartum isn’t glamorous but it sure can be beautiful,” she added.
