To mark her first mother’s day since giving birth to her son Flow with her husband and fellow snowboarder Angus Thomson, 34-year-old Torah Bright posted a series of pictures on Instagram, captioned: “Becoming a mother has unleashed something inside of me.”

She continued: “My prayer for all mothers, now and in the future is that they be heard. Honoured. Respected and encouraged to trust their intuition.”

One image was of her doing a handstand while breastfeeding.

She received a ton of backlash for it and now the Australian Olympic snowboarding champion is firing back to the criticism.

In an Instagram story, she wrote: “Reading some of these comments made me sad.

“In my world, mothers should be each other’s cheerleaders (it’s hard enough). Embrace our quirkiness and finding the joy in every shitty thing that is motherhood.

“We all do it differently. It is not wrong or right. Motherhood is pure. I only now consider myself a Wonder Woman because I have joined the sacred MOTHERS club with you.

“Nothing but respect to all mothers.”

She explained: “I’m not looking for praise. I never need strangers’ praises. I walk this earth to the beat of my own drum, led by my nutrition and search for love and joy … obviously.”

Bright has also posted herself breastfeeding while on a skateboard as well.
