Kylie Jenner opened up about her struggles with postpartum on her Instagram Story on March 15.
According to the Keeping Up With the Kardashians reality star, she encountered it since delivering her second child, Wolf Webster, more than a month ago. The video showed her talking about how postpartum affected her life while exercising on a treadmill.
She said, “I just want to say to my postpartum has not been easy. This experience for me, personally, has been a little harder than with my daughter.”
The business mogul shared that postpartum depression affected a new mom in many ways. She added, “It’s not easy mentally, physically, spiritually.”
The mother of two believed it was important to share her experience on Instagram. She explained, “I didn’t want to just get back to life without saying that because I think we can look on the internet and you know, for other mom’s going through it right now, it might look a lot easier for other people and like put the pressure on us. But it hasn’t been easy on me either. It’s been hard and I just wanted to say that.”
She reflected on her latest post-pregnancy experience, claiming that she’s learned not to be too hard on herself. She said, “It’s okay not to be okay. Once I realized that…I was putting some pressure on myself and I just keep reminding myself ‘I made a whole human, a beautiful healthy boy’ and we have to stop putting pressure to be back, not even psychically, just mentally after birth.”
Kylie and Travis Scott welcomed their second child together, Wolf, on February 2. Their daughter, Stormi Webster, is four years old.
Unlike her pregnancy with Stormi, the Kylie Cosmetics founder didn’t keep her fans in the dark regarding her latest pregnancy. She shared photos and videos of her pregnancy journey on social media such as the time they found out they were pregnant and when they broke the good news to Kylie’s mom, Kris Jenner. She also shared her baby shower as well as when they finally welcomed their new bundle of joy last month.
Kylie and Travis were on an on-and-off relationship until they finally decided to get back together last year.
