Amy Schumer talks about the reason for letting go of the doula after giving birth
The actress, in a recent episode of Penn Badgley’s Stitcher podcast Podcrushed, stated,
“The truth was, and this is pretty unfair to [Domino] after I had Gene, I was recovering from a c-section. Domino is like a goddess. She’s an actual floating siren around the house. And she’s so just lovely, and when she touches you, like you just kind of melt. She was really a family member. And, I just felt so vulnerable. I was like, I can’t have this Botticelli goddess floating around my home when I am, like, bleeding out. I just didn’t have the strength to allow myself the luxury of having her around our home. I was like, I think you can’t come anymore.”

“Ok here’s my post-baby annoying post and my takeaway from pregnancy. Women are the sh—. Men are cool and whatever but women are f— warriors and capable of anything. I was lucky enough to get to have a doula. Her name is @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,” she wrote.
