Hilaria Baldwin is slowly but surely easing back into her routines after suffering a miscarriage.

The fitness guru, 35, shared a set of stretches to Instagram, Sunday, explaining that while she’s taking extra caution with her healing body, the moves have helped her feel better.

“I’m being super gentle with my body right now, considering what it has just been through…but I start getting stiff and uncomfortable due to lack of my typical movement,” she wrote.

In the short clip, Baldwin performs a variety of stretches in what appears to be her living room, while daughter Carmen briefly pops her head into the frame.

“And yes: Carmen likes to peek,” Baldwin joked.

Less than a week after revealing she was “likely” suffering a miscarriage, the yoga instructor confirmed on Instagram last Tuesday that she had lost her baby after the unborn child showed no signs of a heartbeat.

There was no heartbeat today at my scan…so it’s over…but I have some pretty strong and amazing heartbeats right here. I am surrounded by such love and I feel so fortunate. Thank you all for listening, for your support, and for sharing your own personal stories. We are stronger together…I hope this conversation continues to grow and that we stick together through both the beautiful and challenging moments in life. Much love and appreciation to all of you 💜

“There was no heartbeat today at my scan…so it’s over…” she captioned the post, featuring a photo with her family. “But I have some pretty strong and amazing heartbeats right here.”

The adorable photo featured her and husband Alec Baldwin, 61, posing with their four children: Carmen, 5½, and sons Romeo Alejandro David, 10 months, Leonardo Angel Charles, 2½, and Rafael Thomas, 3 ½.

“I am surrounded by such love and I feel so fortunate,” Hilaria continued. “Thank you all for listening, for your support, and for sharing your own personal stories. We are stronger together…”

Baldwin opened up about the emotional process on the Today show, telling hosts Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb that while she was feeling “okay,” it had still been difficult.

She said she knew something was wrong at an early check-in appointment when her technician got quiet and struggled to find a heartbeat.

“She could find it and she’d listen to it and hear it, very spread apart and slow. She said to me that the heartbeat is not very fast,” Baldwin said. “Then I went in again, and in the life of an embryo — days, a week — it’s completely different. And it was the same.”

Baldwin explained that she chose to be open with her miscarriage because hiding the news would have been harder than just being honest.

“It’s a lot to ask of me but for me personally, it’d be harder for me to do it silently,” she confessed. “Say I was doing a fitness segment. I would be wearing something different so you could not see that my belly is a little bit bigger than it typically is. I would pretend I wasn’t nauseous and I would pretend I wasn’t tired — and that’s really tiring. Then you put the emotion on top of that of, ‘Hey this isn’t going in a great direction,’ and that’s a lot to bear.”

“Being open for me just allowed me to relieve it a little bit,” she added. “Secrets are only scary when they’re secrets. Once you let the secret out, it’s not so scary anymore.”

In the week since, the star has focused on counting her blessings, namely her husband and children.

In coping with loss or a difficult time, it is important to be present for your emotions and process, but also keep an eye on perspective and joyful moments. This photo, sent to me by a friend just now, was taken 3 years ago today. This is Rafa, I am like 5-6 months pregnant with Leonardo, and Carmen is off to the right. Peaceful, happy, full of love. When I get sad, I like to remind myself that sadness passes like a season. I like to look at my blessings, my happiness, and always remembering that I have so many more good times to look forward to. It is a balance of sitting with grief, as we don’t want to shove it away and not address it…but also not let it cloud how wonderful life is. If you feel cloudy and down, reach out…our communities can remind us that there is sunshine too 💛. Lastly, we have built a lovely community here…so much beautiful interaction happens in the comments…so if you need support, please reach out. I am sure an angel here will take your hand 🙏🏼
