Audrey Roloff Opens Up On Postpartum Depression: ‘One of the Hardest Seasons of My Life’

Audrey Roloff is opening up about her postpartum struggle after two days of giving birth to her of her newborn son.

“2 days postpartum: Maybe it will be different this time. Maybe the engorgement won’t be level 10. Maybe I’ll get through the first week of recovery without the dreaded M word…,” she wrote.

“I didn’t tear as bad. I didn’t hemorrhage this time. My birth experience was so beautiful and peaceful and empowering. Those first few day postpartum i was so encouraged. Then day 3 happened….”

“Reminder: in the midst of all the cute newborn photos shared after the birth of a new baby… this [is] what you hardly ever see on the other side of the screen. An overflowing postpartum nightstand with a very tired, hurting, recovering mama,” she wrote.

“Tears of joy as she swoons over her newborn baby and tears of pain as she aches in too many places to count.”

“As you try to help ease one pain it makes you more aware of the others. It’s one of the hardest and most humbling seasons in my life. And I don’t think people talk about it enough,” Audrey continued.

“So here i am just showing up to remind you that if you hardly leave your bed those first few weeks and your body feels wrecked. You are not alone. And my guess is there are a lot more of us than Instagram leads us to believe.”

The mother of three shared a birth announcement to Instagram earlier this week.

“It’s a BOY!!!????Welcome to the world Radley Knight Roloff. Born 11.8.21 at 6:32 am 9.1 lbs 21.5 in and born en caul which was wild! I can’t wait to share his birth story with you soon,” Roloff shared.

“We are so grateful to God for answering so many specific prayers in regards to this labor and delivery. A word that I had been praying over this birth was “harmony.” And it truly was one of the most harmonious experiences.” Audrey shared.

Jeremy Roloff, 31, also posted a few photos of his newborn son to Instagram, writing, “Welcome to the world Radley Knight Roloff!”

“@audreyroloff showed immense strength and surrender and I’m completely amazed at her,” he added. “The Roloff household is healthy and full of joy, thank you all for the prayers and well wishes. Cheers to Radley!”
