The mum, who suffered from Hyperemesis gravidarum during her pregnancy, has documented her first year of motherhood with her trademark wit and comedic flair.

On 6 May, 2019, little Gene was born just hours before the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle and Prince Harry welcomed baby Archie.

"10:55 pm last night," she wrote on Instagram. "Our royal baby was born."

The comedian's initiation into the world of "mummy shamers" was swift as she returned to work - apparently too early.

She aso shared the reality of that working-mum life with a heartfelt reflection about guilt, exhaustion and drive.

"Five months today and like all mums I love him so much it hurts," Schumer wrote. "I'm feeling strong and good and like I'm still a human being with interests and ambitions and goals I'm excited to reach. It's felt good to be back at work. I was so worried about it and was afraid to go back after he was three months old. A couple days I've cried from missing him. But it's mostly good to be back and the breaks energise me to be a better mom and appreciate our time even more. I have it a lot easier than many people but I wanted to share my experience."

And reminded mums it was OK to take your time losing the baby weight. "OK Simpson!" she wrote in a cheeky reference to Jessica Simpson's post-baby weight loss.

"Well I've lost 10 pounds and 100 dollars to my sister playing poker." #Norush.

"I really have had a beautiful experience having a baby," the mum told Oprah Winfrey during a television special in January. "You know, it's different for everybody. But I really have to recommend if you've got the resources to have a baby, have a baby. It's been so life-changing for me. And I really like the guy."
