Amy Schumer showed off her C-section scars bravely in her latest Instagram offering. The comedian had welcomed her first child with husband, Chris Fischer back in May 2019.
She is still continuing to embrace her post-pregnancy body she received after giving birth to Gene. The actress was not wearing any clothes as she revealed her scar turning sideways for a bathroom mirror selfie.
Amy captioned the image saying she feels her C-section looks cute today. The vulnerable picture made fans and celebrities take to her comment section as they complimented the actress on her confidence.
“Whatever transported Genie on this planet is to be relished. P.S. body,” Amy’s pal Jessica Seinfeld penned. While Vanessa Carlton wrote that it feels like hers is looking hot today too. A fan penned, “Amy, you are amazing!! Thanks for being that real! We all can be so proud of our bodies!”
Amy and Chris welcomed their son a year after they tied the knot back in 2018. The actress has been vocal about her difficulties despite of her being a proud mother. Her pregnancy journey has been extremely difficult.
The comedian has ruled out another pregnancy after giving birth to her baby boy. She was struggling with vomiting and extreme nausea because of hyperemesis. The actress had opened up about her difficulties in her appearance on an episode of Sunday Today with Willie Geist.
She had opened up about her IVF treatment and revealed that she could not go through that process again. “We did IVF and IVF was really tough on me,” she said during her interview. “I don’t think I could ever do IVF again.”
“My pregnancy was a huge bummer.”
This decision was taken after her first round of IVF treatment left the couple with just one embryo. She revealed how she cannot be pregnant for her own safety. The actress shared how one in three mother with hyperemesis, and one in three babies do not make it.
Amy further shared that she really does not like the odds just because the vomiting is so much and you cannot nourish your baby or yourself. She described her pregnancy being a huge bummer. The actress said, “One in three mothers with hyperemesis, what I had, one in three babies don’t make it. So I really don’t like those odds. Just because you’re vomiting so much you can’t nourish your baby or yourself, so my pregnancy was a huge bummer.”
Although she shared that she does not want to be pregnant again for health reasons, she has teased that she and her husband are willing to explore surrogacy for baby number two.
