Let’s get something straight: A woman grows and carries a baby for nine straight months. Her body goes through changes she never even thought possible. Then she births the child and spends every waking (and, if we’re being honest, sleeping) moment with them, feeding them, changing them, soothing them, the list goes on and on.

Of course, moms do all of this because there’s no love like the love you have for your child. But that doesn’t make it any easier. And it especially doesn’t make it any easier when you have to go back to work just a few months after all of this stuff goes down.

The sad reality about maternity leave is that moms typically only get to be out of work for a very short period of time—even celebrities like Amy Schumer. The mom, who gave birth to her son Gene just five months ago, recently had to go back to work. And guess what? There’s no magic potion for making it easy, even for famous people.

Usually known for her comedy, Schumer wrote pretty non-comedic Instagram post discussing that, though it felt good to be back at work, it was hard to leave her baby behind. Though she admits that she may have it easier than other moms do, she still cried from missing her son.

She wrote:

“5 months today and like all moms I love him so much it hurts. I’m feeling strong and good and like I’m still a human being with interests and ambitions and goals I’m excited to reach. It’s felt good to be back at work. I was so worried about it and was afraid to go back after he was 3 months old. A couple days I’ve cried from missing him. But it’s mostly good to be back and the breaks energize me to be a better mom and appreciate our time even more. I have it a lot easier than many people but I wanted to share my experience.”

At the end of the post, she asked her followers what their experience going back to work was like after having a child. Of course, moms everywhere chimed in with how hard it was, but surprisingly, a wealth of celebrities also gave their two cents as well.

“I didn’t care about anything. Everything seemed trivial if it wasn’t about my kids. But after time, things fall into the new place. Not the old. Old is gone. Forever changed by a love that is indescribable!” said actress Drew Barrymore, mom of two.

“Thanks, Mama. Love, Gene & all the mamas who need strong examples of motherhood and support,” added model Christy Turlington.

Chelsea Handler, another comedian, summed it up in just one word: “Same.”

Luckily, the support from all the women helped Amy in her moment of weakness. “These comments are so good to read. Thank you. ❤️” she wrote back to everyone.

Moms, you’re so strong! Are you a mom? When did you have to go back to work after giving birth? What was your experience like?
