‘Pretty Little Liars’ actress Shay Mitchell wants women to celebrate their postpartum bodies

Shay Mitchell wants women to “celebrate” their bodies after giving birth.

The ‘Pretty Little Liars’ alum welcomed her daughter, Atlas, into the world 19 months ago, and has admitted she didn’t feel like “herself” after she gave birth, because of the way her body looked.

And although she believes women should be allowed to be unhappy with their post-baby figures, she also wants to encourage more people to “celebrate” their bodies at “whatever point we feel our best again”.

She said: “Right after I had Atlas, if I ever made a comment about how I didn’t feel like myself, people were like, ‘Well, you just had a baby.’ Yeah, I know I just had a baby. I’m very grateful for my body, and that it gave life, but I’m still allowed to express that I don’t feel like myself.

“I was strong before I had Atlas, and I wanted to feel that way after. We celebrate our bodies before we’re pregnant; we celebrate our bodies with bumps. We should also celebrate our bodies at whatever point we feel our best again.”

She added: “Getting up to 50 pounds was a boss move. I was really proud of myself.”
