New mama problems! Amy Schumer took to social media to share what she’s been up to as a new mother — and it seems to include a whole lot of breast pumping for her son, Gene Fischer. Naturally, the 37-year-old has found the humor in even the most mundane parts of motherhood.
“Guys what are we doing tonight?” she captioned the hilarious photo posted to her Instagram on May 18, of herself with her breast pumps attached and ready. She even added the hashtags “#schumerpump” and “#ootd,” while tagging Vanderpump Rules star Stassi Schroeder who made the hashtag into a national holiday. Anyone else hope these two are BFFs?
Amy, unfortunately, suffered from hyperemesis during her nine-month term and the complication began rearing its ugly head when she started vomiting en route to comedy shows. After the condition put her in the hospital, things went from bad to worse and forced her to cancel her remaining tour dates.
She handled the condition with grace and strength … and was able to reflect on the experience post-birth with a ton of clarity.

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
“I did Pilates with strong women and went for walks. I threw up violently and felt sick mostly every day of my pregnancy,” she wrote on Instagram on May 11. “Hyperemesis is real and it’s awful. But f—k, what they say is true. The second you give birth it’s gone.”
She also shouted out powerful women and her friends for supporting her through all the craziness of pregnancy. “Women are the s—t. Men are cool and whatever but women are f—king warriors and capable of anything,” she continued. “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.”
