She let her lengthy blonde tresses flow loosely as she danced playfully around her porch for a feel-good clip before adding a voiceover urging fans to ‘just do you’.

The star uploaded the post alongside a candid caption that read: ‘I have been practising my angles since I started modelling at 13 (16years ago).

‘It took me far too many years to not pick apart every centimetre of my body. To not want photographers to photoshop me slimmer or smooth out my skin.

‘Because I thought that’s when I looked most beautiful. Now I know better.

‘And I hope you know you that you don’t need to be anything but the real you.

‘Society taught us to hate our bodies by showing unrealistic images that even the people in the pictures couldn’t attain.

‘You’re meant to be imperfectly perfect… and all your angles are beautiful.’

Last month, Iskra shared a candid video of her home birth in order to give her fans an insight into delivery during the coronavirus pandemic.

Iskra decided to share an intimate look into her home birth which took place at her Californian home with Philip, her parents and her midwife two months ago. 

The activist shared some candid photos, video footage from the birth and a lengthy caption detailing her delivery, which she did without medication. 

In a 15-minute long YouTube video with Philip, Iskra admitted that having her placenta pulled out was the ‘best feeling in the world’ and she buried it in her garden where two trees are now growing from it.

She added: 'Society taught us to hate our bodies by showing unrealistic images that even the people in the pictures couldn't attain'

‘Video linked in my bio. I wasn’t sure how much I’d want to share and I actually wasn’t even aware how much footage and pics my family got as I was 1. Locked in trying to push 2. So excited to meet bubba and 3. In the most intense pain of my entire life.

‘Buttttt after reading so many comments and DMs from you all asking Qs especially with Covid and some of you considering a home birth instead of hospital I really wanted you to have an insight.

‘So I hope you find it enlightening – any more questions drop em in the comments and me or this amazing insta fam I’m sure will help you out!

‘Sending my love to all the mommas to be and those trying – also my prayers and love goes to the infertility warriors❤️. Forever grateful for our incredible midwife Ellie.’

In the YouTube video, Iskra admitted that she had no idea how painful contractions are and they were ‘never ending’ after she endured them for 12 hours.

Talking about having her placenta pulled out, she said: ‘So I’m holding the baby, and got a towel between my legs because obviously there was blood everywhere like a murder scene. There were marks of blood on the wall.

‘Then I go and lay in the bed and then she pulls out the placenta – which is the best feeling in the world. No one told me that, it was like a lovely relief…’

Detailing her birth, the model added that she was unable to sleep, talk or eat during labour and her body ‘swelled up’.
