Robert Brown has correctly said, “Motherhood: All love begins and ends there.” It is one of the most powerful things in the world. A mother, who can carry her child for nine months, can go to any extent for her little one and can surely do anything she wants. Carrying a life inside you is the most cherished feeling for a woman.

Sameera Reddy is one such mother, who has been taking an adventurous ride during and after her pregnancy. The actress had been quite active throughout her pregnancy. From underwater photoshoot to climbing Karnataka’s highest mountain, this yummy mummy has not let her pregnancy take a toll on her.
Sameera opens up about her pregnancy, her underwater photoshoot and her adventurous trip to coffee plantations at Chikmagalur. Sameera says that taking the trek to Maullayanagiri was a planned trip. Sameera also talks about her postpartum depression after the birth of her first child and how it was a difficult phase of her life.
Talking about her much-talked trek, she had revealed, “It was an educational trip for four-and-a-half-year-old Hans. We also went on a safari in Bhadra reserve so that he could see animals like tigers and peacocks, two of which he spotted right in front of the door. It was a special moment for him. Then, we went hiking and I decided to scale Karnataka’s highest peak. It’s something I was really excited about.”
Sameera Reddy further revealed how after her first child was born, she had suffered from postpartum depression and sat at home for a year, refusing to step out. Revealing about the same, she had stated, “I was confused, feeling low and crying all the time. Maybe it was the baby blues and I did not want to go down that road again. That’s why I have been up and about since the first day of this pregnancy. I was shooting till a day prior to Nyra’s birth.” (Do Read: Vandana Sajnani Khatter Speaks About Losing One Of Her Twins And Bringing Home Their Miracle Baby)
When asked how difficult was it to travel, Sameera had stated, “My Nyra is an explorer, she was wide awake all the way, checking out everything. Not once did she cry and later she slept really well.” Adding that this time motherhood has made her fearless and debunking all the usual myths, she’s started feeling good from within, Sameera continued, “I spent nine months making this beautiful child, I’m not going to be sitting at home being scared now.” Sameera, who refuses to be limited to the four walls of her house, is also a huge supporter of breastfeeding. Talking about the same, she had said, “I’ve fed Nyra in the backseat of a car and on the top of a mountain. I should not feel ashamed about feeding my own child.”
After all, everyone has a role model and her role model is none other than Bollywood diva, Kareena Kapoor Khan. Sameera stated that she looks up to Kareena when it comes to fitness, “She is such a hands-on loving mother and I respect her for breaking the myth that motherhood requires you to change your attitude with respect to your career.” She added, “I’ve never been a part of it because I like to be real. I’m sure they wouldn’t like me for doing this.”
While expressing her emotions towards her daughter, Sameera had said that she felt blessed to become a mother again and had written, “This little girl gave me the strength of wild horses. She wanted me to find myself again. She knew I was lost, and she showed me the way. I found a voice in celebrating motherhood, wanting change on body perception and the best part was reaching out to people to just feel good about themselves. I’m so happy that people felt so connected and supported me to get here! We prayed for a #babygirl and we are #blessed!"
