After confusing fans with the name chosen for her newborn, Amy Schumer has opened about the rollercoaster that is pregnancy and childbirth.

Amy's honest Instagram has been liked hundreds of thousands of times and really resonated with parents...

"Ok here’s my post-baby annoying post and my takeaway from pregnancy." her post began.

"Women are the sh*t. Men are cool and whatever but women are ****ing warriors and capable of anything."

"I was lucky enough to get to have a doula... 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."

"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 ****, what they say is true. The second you give birth it’s gone."

"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."
