Janella Salvador recently admitted that she is still working on regaining her self-confidence after giving birth to her son, Jude.
As reported on ABS-CBN, the 23 year-old actress, who welcomed her and Markus Paterson’s son in October last year, stated that she had to remind herself that she had just performed the miracle of birth whenever she felt bad about her body.
“I wouldn’t say I got fully depressed, but there are many times until now that I have to remind myself that, ‘Hey, you gave birth to a human, that’s pretty amazing, that’s pretty hard.’ Because, after giving birth, I really lost confidence in myself, a lot of confidence,” she said.
Salvador stated that she would sometimes look in the mirror and questioned herself when she first gave birth to Jude. “It did take a toll on my confidence, but now I’m slowly trying to take care of myself more, get some self-care in, and try to get my old self back,” she said.
Salvador said that she was lucky to have Paterson and her mother to help her with the baby, adding that they would let her have free time so that she could pamper herself.
“I just relax,” she said. “I try not to think of things that I have to do, even just for 10 minutes to an hour, just to refresh myself. I play games on my phone or I read, or just simple things like that.”
