Author and speaker Sadie Robertson Huff shares openly about the duality of loving her newborn while struggling postpartum.
"Let’s be real… postpartum is hard! It’s just part of the journey. My initial recovery & my experience of birth was a challenge for sure," says Huff in her latest Instagram post.
The new mom also shared her entire experience on her podcast, WHOA That's Good, on July 14. The couple had their daughter Honey on May 11, 2021.
"It’s taken time for me to overcome anxious thoughts and memories from the birth of Honey that planted that initial root, “is my baby okay?” Every little noise she made made me panic and worry if she was okay! I'm so thankful that I've had people to talk to and relate to about this. That was a huge step in getting to a better place!"
At only 24-years-old, the outspoken Christian influencer has journeyed through many experiences in her life to date.
"I’m so thankful for the people who have reassured me that “this is normal” in a time that didn’t feel very normal ❤️ It's so important to have a strong community when you're trying for a baby, pregnant or a new mom. If you’re feeling a little afraid - you are not alone! We all need a community to walk through seasons with."
