According to the news outlet, after the birth of Radley, Audrey’s new and third child, she shared her postpartum journey to the world on her Instagram story. She wrote:
“2 days postpartum: Maybe it will be different this time. Maybe the engorgement won’t be level 10. Maybe I’ll get through the first week of recovery without the dreaded M word…”
Fortunately for her, she had a hitch-free delivery, with the following few days of no nightmares. Nevertheless, the next days were not as blissful as she hoped.
Audrey shared in an additional post about the ordeals she went through. She wrote,
“As you try to help ease one pain, it makes you more aware of the others. It’s one of the hardest and most humbling seasons in my life. And I don’t think people talk about it enough.”
She shared how hard it is for new mothers and that despite the joy that comes with childbirth, there are also struggles every mother faces.
