Max Collins took to social media on Thursday, July 24, to address those who criticized her for exercising two weeks after she gave birth to her firstborn son, Skye. 

In an Instagram post, the actress posted a photo of her doing her “morning stretch” while cradling her newborn child, and in the caption reflected on her experience as a first-time mother thus far. 

“Raising a newborn is difficult and tiring, but seeing his precious lil face, discovering his different nuances day by day - makes it all worth it,” she wrote.


 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

New kind of morning stretch 🧘‍♀️ raising a newborn is difficult and tiring, but seeing his precious lil face, discovering his different nuances day by day - makes it all worth it ♥️ l think it’s okay to have some “me” time once in awhile to stretch/exercise- why this early postpartum you ask? I was cleared by my midwife to do light exercises since I don’t have a tear and I’ve already recovered from giving birth (one of the many benefits of having a water birth!). Also, I believe a happy momma makes a happy baby, and I can only be a happy momma if my body and mind are functioning well. Let’s be kind to ourselves so we have love to give to others. And btw, working out isn’t just about losing weight, it’s about your overall health, get that blood flowing and endorphins kick in 🤗 . . . . Thank you @urbanashramyoga for the online yoga classes (pre and postnatal) @certified_calm for my Manuka mat @benchtm for my active wear (this sports bra makes it so easy to breastfeed because of the zipper in front) #Namastayathome #BenchEveryday #UrbanAshramYoga 📸 @cocoonstudioph

“l think it’s okay to have some ‘me’ time once in a while to stretch/exercise — why this early postpartum you ask?”

Max then explained that she was cleared by her midwife to do light exercises as she didn’t have a tear and has since recovered from giving birth, one she remarked as “one of the many benefits of having a water birth.”

“Also, I believe a happy momma makes a happy baby, and I can only be a happy momma if my body and mind are functioning well,” she added.

She also encouraged her followers to “be kind to ourselves so we have love to give to others.”

“And BTW,” she added, “working out isn’t just about losing weight, it’s about your overall health, get that blood flowing and endorphins kick in.”

In the comment section of her post, not only her fans showed support for Max, but also her fellow celebrity mothers such as Ellen Adarna and Iya Villania.

Max gave birth to her baby boy last July 6.

Skye is her first child with her husband, actor Pancho Magno. 

The couple got married in an intimate wedding ceremony held at the Manila Marriott Hotel in December 2017, seven months after they got engaged.
