Using a detailed caption, she sent a message to all mothers, touching on the challenges of pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum. Jessie began:

"To all Mums, It's not easy because YOU care. It's not easy because YOU sacrificed so much physically and mentally to birth your child. It's not easy even if YOU didn't physically birth your child."

She went on, "It's not easy because YOU miss your friends. It's not easy because YOU need more sleep. It's not easy because YOU are an amazing Mum. It's ok to admit that sometimes it's hard."

The "Price Tag" singer then focused on herself, saying she did not shower some days and usually cried a lot which she noted was "completely normal." In conclusion, she sent love to fellow mothers, cheering them on and commending them for "killing it" and "doing it."
