Jessica Simpson gets real about the difficulties of recovering from a c-section.

Jessica recently welcomed her third child, a baby girl she called, “Birdie Mae.”

Just two weeks after the birth Jessica is opening up on social media about the reality of recovering from a C-Section.

“I’m feeling thankful for these two older siblings looking over their new baby sister,” she wrote alongside a photo of her older kids.

“I think we all get so carried away with the excitement of having a new baby that we forget that we are going in for major surgery,” she added.

“Then on top of that, we get home from the hospital, have to recover from the surgery, balance our new life as a parent to three kids and be a wife.”

She then goes on to promote a new app she claims has been quite helpful to her of late.

“I’m so grateful to the @peanut community for helping me tackle this new life and supporting me as a mother of three!

“The @peanut app is an amazing support to connect with other mums and get advice. The app introduces you to women in your neighborhood based on the things you have in common.”

Recovering from a C-Section is no joke! I’m feeling thankful for these two older siblings looking over their new baby sister. I think we all get so carried away with the excitement of having a new baby that we forget that we are going in for major surgery. Then on top of that, we get home from the hospital, have to recover from the surgery, balance our new life as a parent to three kids and be a wife. I’m so grateful to the @peanut community for helping me tackle this new life and supporting me as a mother of three! The @peanut app is an amazing support to connect with other moms and get advice. The app introduces you to women in your neighborhood based on the things you have in common. I have been chatting with other moms in my same situation and they have been answering my questions. It is so nice to be able to relate to a community of moms and moms-to-be who are going through the same things as me. Go check it out. #peanutapp

  • My first emergency c section was just over 5 years ago and it hurt, i couldn’t do anything myself, i couldn’t even get myself out of bed or off the toilet, my second one was much easier but still en emergency but not as severe as my first.I have no idea how anyone could think it could ever be taking the easy way out. It is hard to get support especially if you don’t know anyone that has had one before, that app sounds awesome!

  • I didn’t want a C section, but after a 40 hour labor I didn’t have a choice. It was very painful and recovery was slow, but getting up and walking around helped me alot

  • I think there are a lot of women who think a c-section is the easy way out of delivery but to be honest I think it would be worse than a natural birth. Ultimately it should only be done if medically necessary

  • A friend of mine has a c-section after 23 hours labour. She wasn’t allowed to reach beyond a certain height. The most weight she was allowed to lift was her newborn.

  • Caesars take time to recover from which can be hard when you need to give so much time to a new baby.

  • I have found other mums advice was golden to get through the first few weeks of motherhood. We put so many expectations on how we will be that are so unrealistic. Babies are hard. And giving birth is hard work but a c-section? I can only imagine having to recover from that AND deal with a baby. Sheesh.

  • Good on her for being real about it.
    I was one of the blessed ones who bounced back really quickly after my C-sections. I was on the bike doing my shoppings the same week I came home from the hospital having a C-section :)
