There’s no denying it – giving birth is tough.
But sometimes we forget about one of the toughest aspects of all – the aftermath.
“I was in new territory,” Autumn wrote.
“Learning to breastfeed this little human being that I just brought into the world. Wearing these big mesh panties, still sporting a pregnant belly… no one told me your belly doesn’t go down immediately. No one told me I’d be bleeding out.”
Autumn, who gave birth to her daughter Layla earlier this year, also wrote about suffering a bad rip due to her “quick delivery”.
"I was in so much pain," she wrote.
"I ripped all the way up and down, and also side to side. The weeks following I couldn’t walk. I couldn’t use the bathroom. I wore these big diapers. I never thought I would be normal again," she added.
But it wasn't just the physical effects Autumn touched on in her post, she also shared the intense array of emotions she felt in the days following.
