Since Amy Schumer announced that she and her husband Chris Fischer are expecting their first child, the Trainwreck star has been extremely candid about her pregnancy and her new mom life. Schumer and Fischer welcomed baby Gene in May, and Schumer recently revealed that his Cesarean delivery was “really scary.”
Schumer said in a recent episode of the Informed Pregnancy and Parenting podcast that she vomited during the first hour of her cesarean. And, although the procedure normally takes about an hour and a half, hers took more than three hours due to her endometriosis.
The author of Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo also revealed that she originally planned to give birth with a doula in a birth center, but ultimately decided to give birth in a hospital.
“It was a rainy Sunday and I woke up vomiting and I was like the sickest I had been all the time,” said Schumer. “And I was like,” I can’t do this anymore. “I was so tall and I was so miserable and I couldn’t hold anything back.”
Schumer described Gene’s birth as “torture” and “sort of brutality,” but she said that her husband was great. She said they just looked each other in the eye and that he was holding her. And, when Gene arrived, she was allowed to see and hold him for quite a while.
The 38-year-old woman also spoke about her diagnosis of hyperemesis during pregnancy, which is extreme morning sickness and nausea, which she received during her first trimester. She said that after giving birth, all of her symptoms were gone.

In February, Schumer told fans on Instagram that her morning sickness was so severe that she would vomit after driving in a car for as little as five minutes. She ended up canceling her comedy tour so that she could take care of herself during her pregnancy. And, even though she was pretty miserable, she said that some days she would feel good for a few hours.
A few weeks before Gene’s birth, Amy Schumer wrote on social media that she was very pregnant and was still vomiting because money rarely went to medical school for hyperemesis and endometriosis. Instead, she said the money was going to things like “d * cks don’t get hard enough or old folks want harder d * cks”
She also shot her special comedy Growing during her second trimester, where she pulled up her dress and showed her growing belly to the audience.
Growing is currently available for streaming on Netflix.
