Kalki Koechlin recently embraced the most special phase of her life – motherhood. The actress, who gave birth to a baby girl last week, has been since then gushing about her delightful experience. The munchkin has been named Sappho and was born through the natural process of waterbirth. Only recently, the Yeh Jawaani Hai Dewaani actress had shared her experience on the same and, now, she has treated fans with a glimpse of her going into labour with the help of her ‘Doula’.
In her caption, Kalki Koechlin opened up on the importance of a Doula, who is a trained professional in childbirth and assists all the expecting women in soothing their experience of giving birth. The picture sees Kalki in a tub with warm water, as she gears up to go in labour. In her caption, Kalki thanked her Doula for all the support. “Doula. I can't experience childbirth and not talk about this word. The word comes from the ancient Greeks and meant 'a woman's maid', it is now a support system of women for women during the process of pregnancy, labour and post partem care. I didnt know about the function of a doula myself until I got pregnant,” read an excerpt.

She added, “In this photo I'm with my doula @newbeginningzz in the 'transitional' phase of labour, when you are almost ready to push the baby out and contractions are at their peak. For me it was by far the hardest part (so it's quite appropriate that the picture is a blur), and without Sanam's strong hands and steady voice guiding me through the breathing I'm not sure I would've been able to bear it.”
Earlier, Kalki had shared a cute first picture of her baby girl Sappho, as she posed with BF Guy Hershberg and the team of her doctors.
