Kalki Koechlin shares her daughter Sappho’s first pictures on social media, thanks doctors



Kalki Koechlin has finally shared the first pictures of her newborn daughter on social media. The photos show Kalki and her boyfriend Guy Hershberg, an Israeli musician, holding baby Sappho in their arms as they pose with their doctors and nurses.

Kalki wrote a post about the process of childbirth. She thanked her doctors for not relenting even after 17 hours. “So thankful to the whole team at Tulip Women’s Care and to my two doctors @docsheetalsabharwal and @drrvpunjabi who simply refused to give up on me even when after 17 hours I was so tired I begged them to take the baby out any way they could and they said no, you’ve come this far and you’re going to have your natural water birth, and an hour later Sappho was born. You guys are miracle workers,” she wrote.

Earlier on Sunday, Kalki shared a picture of Sappho’s footprint to announce her birth.

Please welcome Sappho. Born 07/02/20. She just spent 9 months wrapped up like a momo in my uterus. Let's give her some space🌬️ Thank you for all the good wishes and positive energy pouring in. And respect to all the women who go through the intense and gruesome experience of birth, be it vaginal or c section, so many of whom are not given credit or support for the biggest challenges they face, but are expected to do it out of some kind of duty. The process takes a huge toll both psychological and physical and should have the backing of an entire community to truly heal. And a reminder to each and every human being of where we started, being formed from tiny molecules to conscious, beautiful beings. We are survivors of the biggest battle, the one for life and existence, and should treat ourselves and others with that love and respect. "Some say an army of horsemen or infantry, A fleet of ships is the fairest thing on the black earth, but I say It's what one loves." ~Sappho~ circa 600BC
