“We’re just women, doing the best that we can with what we know and what we have.”
It’s no secret that Jaime King has struggled with motherhood.
The 35-year-old actress, who gave birth to son James Knight in October 2013, opened up last year about her painful battle to become a mum after five miscarriages. And now, she’s done is again.
“There is so much Mommy judging, and so many rules and regulations,” she said. “There are so many labels now of what you should or shouldn’t do and I think that is really harmful to mothers.”
When asked in an interview what her number one piece of advice to new mums would be, the model-turned-actress said "be gentle with yourself".
"Birthing a child and caring for a child is already difficult in itself," she added. "It’s hard enough just being a person in this world, and then all of the sudden, you’re responsible for another person."
With a stellar record of modelling and acting experience, and close friends like Taylor Swift and Lena Dunham, the actress credits a strong support system for her success.
"And it doesn’t have to be other mothers," she says. "Don’t judge yourself if you have a bunch of best friends who aren’t parents. Just find the people that love and support you so that you can support yourself and your child."
The 35-year-old, who struggled with infertility and miscarriages for eight years before falling pregnant with James, has also suffered from undiagnosed PCOS and Endometriosis.
