Ronda Rousey wants you to know that breastfeeding is normal!
The former UFC champion shared her thoughts on breastfeeding in an Instagram post earlier this week.
“Our boys asked me the other day how I’m gonna feed PÅ on the plane when we take her with us to Hawaii, and I was like, ‘uh, the same way I always do,'” she wrote in the caption. “Then it occurred to me that they probably never seen anyone breastfeed before and weren’t sure if it was appropriate in public.”
She continued, “Motherhood’s some badass, primal, beautiful shit that shouldn’t be hidden. It still blows my mind that my body assembled this little person, pushed her out, and now makes everything she needs to thrive. It’s really nothing to be ashamed of, it’s something to brag about.”
In the photo, the new mom could be seen with her breastfeeding infant daughter, La’akea MakalapuaokalanipÅ (aka PÅ). Many fans and supporters took to the comments to praise Rousey for her words.
“It is the most epic, most beautiful life changing experience ever!! You’re amazing!! #bragaway,” one user wrote.
Another said, “You now own the greatest title of all…mother.”
Rousey and her husband, Travis Browne, welcomed the infant back in September. Since then, her social media has been filled with honest stories about motherhood.
On Monday, she posted another photo of her and baby PÅ, this time with Browne.
“After PÅ’s roughest night since we brought her home, (she was up feeding every hour all night) @travisbrownemma (aka best husband/dad ever) made use of our stored up milk stash so I could take a 5-hour afternoon nap,”Â she captioned the photo. “I emerged a new woman ready to take on another sleepless night.”
