After being shamed for her post-pregnancy body, Melissa Ricks took to social media to send a message of body positivity by urging her followers to embrace their imperfections.

On Instagram on Friday, the 'Nasaan Ka Elisa?' star posted an unedited, unfiltered photo of herself and wrote:  "So I was sitting here editing my photo. Then all of a sudden I decided to not edit it at all. Not even a filter. Just as I am. As raw as it can be.
