Amy Schumer recently opened up about the highs and lows of raising her 2-year-old son Gene David Fischer.
Being a mother can feel like one is on a rollercoaster ride that is both thrilling and scary at the same time, and such is the case for the-mother-one.
The “I Feel Pretty” actress got candid about motherhood on social media and got a hoard of support from others in her shoes.

On Sunday, February 6, Schumer took to her Instagram page to talk about what it feels like to be a mother.
The “Trainwreck” actress raises Gene David, born in May 2019, with her loving husband of over two years, Chris Fischer.
Schumer uploaded a photo of herself with her toddler. In the image, she was makeup-free in casual wear, sitting beside Gene on a red toy motorcycle.
The mother-of-one protected her son’s identity with a red heart emoji and spoke about the ups and downs of raising a child. Her caption read:
“Being his [Gene’s] mom is heaven on earth and also means a constant feeling of guilt and vulnerability I will never get used to.”
Schumer describes the experience as surreal and noted that she could no longer rely on liquid courage to help her process her emotions as she did in her younger years. She concluded with:
“Your heart feels like it’s outside your body, and you’re too old to drink the feelings away like you used to. When you were in love and scared. Send help!!!”
The star’s posts echoed among her celebrity friends and fans as well. They took to her comment section to offer their support and personal accounts.
“Queer Eye” star Tan France who welcomed a son Ismail with his husband Rob via surrogate on August 2, admitted, “Yep, that’s exactly how it is and feels. It’s beautiful and terrifying.”
“The Talk” co-host Amanda Kloots who has a son Elvis Eduardo with her ex-husband Nick Cordero added, “Omg, it’s how I feel every day I drop him off at preschool.”

Triple platinum-certified singer-songwriter Debbie Gibson typed, “I’m not a Mom, but as an Auntie, I hear from my Sisters, and sounds like you are right on track with it all.”
Gibson gave her friend priceless advice with her conclusion, “Ahhh, the love. The guilt, too… but, try to drop that girl cuz all of you Moms are doing the most awe inspiring job by virtue of the fact that you are doing it ! Amazing pic. ENJOY!”
“Will & Grace” alumna Debra Messing, who welcomed a son Roman Walker in 2004, with ex-husband Daniel Zelman wants Schumer to avoid overthinking the emotions that come with motherhood. She expertly posited, “There’s no cure.”
Last September, The Blast revealed that Schumer underwent surgery to remove her appendix and uterus following a battle with Endometriosis which began with painful periods.
The “Snatched” Actress posted an Instagram photograph of herself from the hospital room and a video recorded by Fisher. She explained that her doctor found 30 endometriosis spots near her appendix.
Fellow endometriosis warrior Padma Lakshmi shed light on the condition, writing, “thank you so much for sharing your endo story. Over 200 million women worldwide suffer with this. Hope you feel better soon!”

While on the “What To Expect” podcast, Schumer said to host Heidi Murkoff, “I could have a baby again, physically, but it might kill me,” due to her history of really bad endometriosis and adenomyosis. She also recalled:
“I was throwing up through the first hour of my C-section. It’s supposed to take about an hour and a half—mine took over three hours because of my endometriosis, and that was really scary.”
