Sameera Reddy was blessed with her first child in 2015. The actress tied the knot with Akshai Varde on 21 January 2014 and welcomed their son Hans next year. As it is said, pregnancy is not an easy task, Sameera acknowledges the same on being the mother of two kids. Recently, the actress opened up on postpartum depression that she went through after her first pregnancy and shared her experience in order to empower other women going through the same.

Sameera started a campaign on social media, called #ImperfectlyPerfect, in order to spread the word about depression in women post their pregnancy and to endorse self-love and self-acceptance. She recounted her own experience saying that she gained a lot of extra weight and had become 105 Kgs post her first pregnancy. She felt disillusioned and broken after losing the perfect face and perfect body that she worked on for her film career and felt lost when people judged her.

A post shared by Sameera Reddy (@reddysameera) on

Back then, she recollects that whenever she complained of being emotional, moody and disconnected, it was not given enough attention thinking of the symptoms as pregnancy blues. It was only later when she consulted a doctor that she found out about her postpartum depression. Having taken too long to open up, it took her a year to get out of it.

Sameera saw the worst, and with her second pregnancy, she came back more prepared and confident. She decided to be vocal and help out new mothers as she feels that it is not something to be ashamed of.
