Amy Schumer Hits Back At The Haters Who Mummy Shamed Her For Returning To Work Weeks After Giving Birth!
Amy Schumer decided over the weekend that she was ready to return to work a few weeks after giving birth to her first child, Gene Attell Fisher. Schumer married chef and farmer Chris Fischer in 2018 and they had their first child together last month.
On Monday, the new mum shared a photo of herself on Instagram doing stand-up comedy for the first time since giving birth and predictably the mummy shamers came out in full force!

The photo was captioned “Pic from tonight by @hewasfunny I”M BACK.”
Back she is indeed! After sharing with her fans just how tough her pregnancy had been we’re so happy to see she’s feeling well enough to throw herself back into that she loves best.
Throughout her pregnancy, Schumer kept it real about how tough the process was on her body and revealed how she suffered from hyperemesis gravidarum which saw her hospitalised for several months.
Instagram’s comment section was full of support for the comedian with lovely words like these:
Yes!!! You go girl! Just because we see a mum up and about, let’s not forget what goes on behind the scenes that enable her to get there. There’s a LOT that happens behind closed doors and we love the fact that Schumer decided to share hers. Lots of her celeb pals agreed.
Who the fudge would Shame a mom for doing what she does ? And how the hell did you do it? #shumerwoman❤️
Oof. Get ready mama. It’s the smug passive aggressive ones that “shame by example” that are the worst ones. Enjoy!

Ok here’s my post baby annoying post and my takeaway from pregnancy. Women are the shit. Men are cool and whatever but women are fucking warriors and capable of anything. I was lucky enough to get to have a doula. Her name @domino_kirke @carriagehousebirth what do doulas do? I don’t totally know But what she did was make me and Chris feel totally secure and supported throughout my pregnancy and the birth process. I really recommend getting one if you can. Doctor Brill and all the nurses and pediatricians at Lenox Hill and all the other hospitals i spent time in this year, thank you for everything. I did Pilates with strong women and went for walks. I threw up violently and felt sick mostly every day of my pregnancy. Hyperemesis is real and it’s awful. But fuck, what they say is true. The second you give birth it’s gone. @hgmoms has the best research I found on the condition The only thing that helped me with my nausea was products from @thelordjones I learned that globally 1 in 5 births take place without the assistance of a skilled birth attendant. @everymomcounts is a great place to donate $250 equips a midwife with a bag of medical equipment needed to provide care to hundreds of women and babies in Guatemala. All my friends. Friends I’ve had for 30 years or people who encouraged me to “keep going” or telling me “it will be worth it”. Thank you. Every woman I encountered is so willing to help and advise you and I felt all their strength. And you were right. Thank you ladies from my family. Chris, Gene and of course Tatiana #titsleaking #wearingadiaper
