Bachelor alum Lauren Bushnell just recently gave birth to a beautiful baby. However, she is struggling a bit with postpartum. Now, she’s doing a deep dive into those feelings she’s facing so others don’t think they are alone.
Lauren Bushnell talks postpartum
Lauren Bushnell and Chris Lane welcomed their little baby into the world just three months ago. A lot has changed in that time for the little family, however, that doesn’t mean it’s all been easy. Us Weekly reveals that Lauren is getting real on her Instagram story. She says that four-month sleep regression is hitting hard and she’s
“Four month sleep regression hitting harddddd,” Lauren writes on her Instagram story. “I know this is a highlight reel but let me tell you — I was too frazzled yesterday to take a photo of this little guy inconsolable and screaming for two hours straight. It’s truly the most heartbreaking feeling watching your baby melt down and be over tired. Thank goodness for phone consults with @takingcarababies!!! Feeling hopeful today but have been off here quite a bit this last week trying my best to provide Dutton with the love he needs during his milestones.”
Sleep regression isn’t the only thing the new mom is dealing with. She’s still facing anxiety and hormones from being pregnant and giving birth. Apparently, it got so severe she thought she was having an allergic reaction. Turns out, she was having a panic attack.
“Balancing work, a 3-month-old, [postpartum] anxiety and hormones, lack of sleep and finding time for me has been a challenge. I had a full-blown panic attack the other night and drove myself to the fire station thinking I was having an allergic reaction and my throat was closing [and my] legs were numb.”
Lauren starts to encourage others
She goes on to tell her fans that they aren’t alone in whatever they are going through postpartum. She says she wants to encourage moms to know they aren’t alone.
T“I’m heading to the doctor tomorrow to check a couple things and discuss my anxiety that has been through the roof,” she writes. “Anyway — just thought I would share and maybe encourage other moms that you are not alone.”
