Actress Gabrielle Union, who recently gave birth to her daughter Kaavia, took to Instagram to share a slideshow shutting down some shaming comments she has got in social media.


In the first photo, Gabrielle appeared kissing her daughter’s forehead in a beautiful mother-and-daughter moment. The second part of the post was a video that showed Kaavia in a pale pink outfit while a pediatrician was checking her lungs and ears.

While the image and the video attracted a lot of attention, the highlight of the post was Gabrielle’s caption as she sent out a message for those who keep mom-shaming her.



She began saying that she made a list for “happily enjoying” the posts of her family. “Trust that she is surrounded by medical and child care specialists … Trust that I won't post anything that puts my child in danger or opens me up to unsolicited online medical or parenting opinions.”


Gabrielle continued, “If someone does things differently or does not take your advise or that advise doesnt pan out the way it did for you, that is NO indication that you are wrong or a bad parent. We all figure out what works for us, our children and our families [sic].”


“There will be no mommy shaming on this page. I rebuke mommy shaming. For those STILLLLL clinging onto your fears about Kaav's breathing and or whether my sweet kisses harmed my kid...feel free to swipe,” finished the actress, encouraging people to watch the video of Kaavia with the doctor.



Gabrielle decided to share that post after she got a lot of complaints from her followers for uploading a clip kissing the baby in the mouth several times in what she labeled a “kissing game.”


Some Instagram users wrote that people should never kiss a baby on their lips as they could get bacteria very easily. In the comments, Gabrielle clapped back by saying that there was a nurse in her home and that the girl was healthy.



It was not the first time that the actress made headlines with a mother-related topic. During her first interview as a mother with Oprah Winfrey, she revealed to being dragged for a photo she posted after Kaavia’s birth.

Many questioned why she was on a hospital bed when she didn’t deliver her child (Kaavia was born via surrogate). Those mean comments brought back a lot of painful memories for Gabrielle, who once admitted having undergone close to nine miscarriages and failed IVF attempts prompting her to finally give in to surrogacy.
