Amy Schumer Shares the Most Relatable Photo on the Toilet After Giving Birth
Amy Schumer celebrated her first Mother's Day with an Instagram photo that featured her hooked up to hospital machinery while sitting in a bathroom.
“Milf alert 1 o’clock,” Schumer, 37, captioned the image.
The relatable post was celebrated by Schumer’s famous fellow-mom friends, including Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, who commented, “Lmao yassss show the real deal.”
“Men are cool and whatever but women are f— warriors and capable of anything. I was lucky enough to get to have a doula. Her name @domino_kirke @carriagehousebirth,” she wrote, before shedding some light on the role doulas can play throughout the pregnancy experience.
Continuing, the mother of one wrote, “What do doulas do? I don’t totally know But what she did was make me and Chris feel totally secure and supported throughout my pregnancy and the birth process. I really recommend getting one if you can.”
During her pregnancy, Schumer suffered from hyperemesis gravidarum — a condition which is marked by persistent sickness often leading to dehydration and weight loss — and noted that she “threw up violently and felt sick” nearly every day she was pregnant.
“Hyperemesis is real and it’s awful. But f—, what they say is true. The second you give birth it’s gone,” she wrote.
Gene’s middle name, Attell, could be a reference to Schumer’s fellow comedian and friend Dave Attell, who recently invited the new mom to perform with him at his show at Caroline’s in New York City in January.
