Amy Schumer welcomes her own ‘royal baby’ along with a heartfelt shout out to women

So far, May has been the month of famous babies with Princess Meghan Markle and Prince Harry welcoming their son Archie Harrison.

Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West also celebrated the birth of their fourth child via surrogate called Psalm.

And in case you missed it comedian and actress Amy Schumer gave birth to her first baby, a boy called Gene.

Her honesty in the struggles throughout her pregnancy have been welcomed by so many who appreciate her ability to tell it like it is, instead of the usual picture perfect social media shots.

On Mother’s Day, for example, she posted a photo of herself sitting on the toilet in the hospital.

But one post, she titled “post baby annoying post” is being celebrated not just for its honesty but for capturing that  moment of gratitude when you finally get to meet your baby.

She admits that it really does take a lot of support.

 

In the post the Trainwreck star writes: “Women are the s***. Men are cool and whatever but women are f***ing warriors and capable of anything.”

Amy Schumer and her husband, Chris Fischer welcomed their first baby Gene Attell Fischer on May 5.

Throughout her pregnancy she jokes about the pregnancy timeline she shared with Meghan Markle, even announcing her pregnancy with a photo of her and Chris’ heads on Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s bodies.

The I Feel Pretty star struggled with hyperemesis gravidarum thoughout her pregnancy, a form of extreme morning sickness, and was honest about her ups and downs on her Instagram page.

She even posted video of just how sick the condition made her, having to frequently stop throughout her day to be violently ill.

Amy was hospitalised for the condition and was forced to postpone some of her stand-up shows in November.

Amy gave birth just hours before Meghan Markle and announced the news with a nod to their own royal baby.

“10:55 p.m. last night. Our royal baby was born,” Amy wrote.

Her 8.8 million followers on Instagram were treated to another glimpse of baby Gene with a picture of him being cuddled by dad Chris Fischer.

The couple tied the knot on February 13 last year after just a few months of dating. Chris, a Martha’s Vineyard native, is an award winning chef and author.

But despite the candid shot of her sitting on the toilet while her sister holds baby Gene, which she posted on Mother’s Day, it’s one particuar post that has all her fans talking.

She announced the heartfelt message with these words: “Ok here’s my post baby annoying post and my takeaway from pregnancy.”

She goes on to write: “Women are the s***. Men are cool and whatever but women are f***ing warriors and capable of anything,” she continued.

She then goes on to thank her doula, who is a non-medical companion who supports a woman by providing continuous care before, during, or after childbirth.

“I was lucky enough to get to have a doula. Her name @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. I really recommend getting one if you can.”

Ok here’s my post baby annoying post and my takeaway from pregnancy. Women are the shit. Men are cool and whatever but women are fucking warriors and capable of anything. I was lucky enough to get to have a doula. Her name @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. I really recommend getting one if you can. Doctor Brill and all the nurses and pediatricians at Lenox Hill and all the other hospitals i spent time in this year, thank you for everything. 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 fuck, what they say is true. The second you give birth it’s gone. @hgmoms has the best research I found on the condition The only thing that helped me with my nausea was products from @thelordjones I learned that globally 1 in 5 births take place without the assistance of a skilled birth attendant. @everymomcounts is a great place to donate $250 equips a midwife with a bag of medical equipment needed to provide care to hundreds of women and babies in Guatemala. 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

And then she praised every member of her delivery team.

“Doctor Brill and all the nurses and pediatricians at Lenox Hill and all the other hospitals i spent time in this year, thank you for everything,” she wrote.

“I did Pilates with strong women and went for walks,” Amy continued. “I threw up violently and felt sick mostly every day of my pregnancy. Hyperemesis is real and it’s awful. But f***, what they say is true. The second you give birth it’s gone.”

‘Provide care to hundreds of women and babies’

She acknowledged how lucky she was to have so many supportive people around her and encouraged her followers to think about those women who don’t have the proper care during childbirth.

“I learned that globally 1 in 5 births take place without the assistance of a skilled birth attendant. @everymomcounts is a great place to donate $250 equips a midwife with a bag of medical equipment needed to provide care to hundreds of women and babies in Guatemala,” she said.

I look forward to many more candid posts about the beautiful and tiring times of raising a tiny human being.

Please share with all the mamas out there, especially those who like to keep it real.
