Amy Schumer Opens Up About 'Violently' Sick Pregnancy
"Women are f***ing warriors."
Amy Schumer gave birth to her first child, a son named Gene Attell Fischer, last Sunday night and while we all wish (see: hope, pray, perform rituals] for the pregnancies of sitcoms, it would appear Amy's was anything but.
The 37-year-old comedian has posted a lengthy post to Instagram to explain the realities behind her pregnancy and birth journey writing:
"OK here’s my post baby annoying post and my takeaway from pregnancy. Women are the s**t. Men are cool and whatever but women are f***ing warriors and capable of anything,"
"I was lucky enough to get to have a doula. Her name [is] @domino_kirke @carriagehousebirth 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."
Amy continued to open up about her tough pregnancy - assisted by doula Domino Kirke, sister of actress Jeminima Kirke, and wife of Penn Badgley - explaining she struggle with hyperemesis.
"I did Pilates with strong women and went for walks. I threw up violently and felt sick mostly every day of my pregnancy. Hyperemesis is real and it’s awful. But f**k, what they say is true. The second you give birth it’s [hyperemesis] gone," she explained.
"All my friends. Friends I’ve had for 30 years or people who encouraged me to 'keep going' or telling me 'it will be worth it'. Thank you."
"Every woman I encountered is so willing to help and advise you and I felt all their strength. And you were right. Thank you ladies from my family. Chris, Gene and of course Tatiana #titsleaking #wearingadiaper."
