Bec Judd gave an incredibly honest interview about what life was like when she became a mother for the first time.
The 34-year-old described her first six weeks after giving birth to her first son Oscar as 'torture' in an interview for Mamamia's Hello, Bump.
'Just when you think ‘Thank God, the birth is over!’ I’ve got another thing – the first six weeks in my opinion are actually the hardest, they’re far harder than the previous nine to 10 months,' she said.
Bec says she was completely overwhelmed when she brought Oscar, now five, home from the hospital.
'WTF! What am I doing? Who is this thing? I don’t know if I want him. Dr Len, can you put him back? My life is over. I’m not good at this. He’s spewing… my boobs hurt, they’re bleeding. I don’t like this, I don’t like this at all,' she said.
'The first six weeks are so hard, for me they’re harder than the pregnancy itself. You’ve got a little baby and you’ve got no idea what you’re doing and you are solely responsible.'
Midwife Cathy assured her that her emotions were a completely normal part of motherhood.
'It’s really hard. You don’t know what you don’t know. And you’ve got through pregnancy and think ‘This is easy, I’m just going to go with the flow’ and you see photos of women breastfeeding and it looks easy. Seriously, I wouldn’t have a job if it was that easy,' she said.
