Amy Schumer is opening up about why her cesarean section was no laughing matter.
The comedian, 38, welcomed her first child, son Gene Attell, in May after a particularly trying pregnancy that left the star with never-ending nausea due to a rare condition for expectant moms called hyperemesis gravidarum.
On a new episode of the Informed Pregnancy and Parenting Podcast, Schumer speaks candidly about her pregnancy, including her decision to have a hospital c-section at 39 weeks, after originally seeking a doula-assisted delivery at a birthing center.
“I was throwing up through the first hour of my c-section. It’s supposed to take about an hour and a half — mine took over three hours because of my endometriosis,” she said, “and that was really scary.”
Schumer described how her doctors were “amazed” that she was able to carry a baby with the severity of her endometriosis, which indicated “with no question” that she would need the c-section.
