Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi recently became parents for the second time. Since the birth of her first child Mehr in 2018, the actress has been outspoken about the importance of public breastfeeding being normalised. She has repeatedly stated that she has struggled to feed her baby in public due to the taboo nature of the practise.
On Wednesday, the actress posted a photo of herself breastfeeding her son with the hashtag #freedomtofeed. In the photo, Neha is wearing an all-grey outfit and breastfeeding her newborn.
The actor has been outspoken about post-partum body issues and how it feels uncomfortable to see a mother breastfeeding her child in public. She had previously shared an incident in which she had to take her child to the restroom to breastfeed on a plane because her co-passengers were uncomfortable seeing her breastfeed in public.
During International Breastfeeding Week in 2019, she launched a campaign called Freedom To Feed, which aimed to give new mothers the freedom to feed their babies in public without being judged.
The actress has frequently expressed her views on the importance of making new mothers feel normal while breastfeeding their children.
The actress shared a brief post on Freedom to Feed which read as, "The journey of a new mum is something only she can understand. While we all hear the happy side, it is also a huge responsibility and emotionally draining. It's hard enough to be a mum and do all that there is to do. The last thing we need is to be questioned, mocked and worst of all trolled. I went through the same beats and I know how hard it is."
