Kylie Jenner Discusses Postpartum Recovery After Welcoming Son
Kylie Jenner is sharing a vulnerable moment in her postpartum recovery six weeks after welcoming her son, Wolf.
The reality star, 24, appeared on her Instagram Stories on Tuesday, sharing video content and a candid statement on how she’s been doing.
After a boomerang selfie on a workout machine, which she labeled “6 weeks postpartum,” Jenner shared a message to her “postpartum moms: that postpartum has not been easy.”
“This experience for me personally has been a little harder than with my daughter,” she said, referring to her firstborn Stormi Webster, now 4.
“It’s not easy mentally, physically, spiritually, it’s just crazy,” she continued.
“And yeah, I didn’t just want to get back to life without saying that because I think we can look on the internet — for other moms going through it right now — we can go on the internet, and it might look a lot easier for other people, and put the pressure on us, but it hasn’t been easy for me.”
The Kylie Skin mogul went on to say “it’s been hard” and that she “didn’t even think [she’d] make it to this workout today.”
She added, “But I’m here, and I’m feeling better. So you got this!”
In a subsequent Story, she added, “It’s OK not to be OK. Once I realized that I was putting some pressure on myself… And I just keep reminding myself I made a whole human, a beautiful healthy boy.”
“We have to stop putting pressure on ourselves to be ‘back,’ ” Jenner also said. “Not even physically, just mentally, after birth. So yeah, just sending some love. I love you guys!”
