As Duff explained, “My hubby is the most calm anchor in the room when I feel like climbing the walls and my little Molly is an extraordinary doula who sat with me when I needed to be still and quiet.” She also added that her own mum was on hand with support. “My own mama was there to make all the snacks and watch with a big nervous smile as her baby brings her a new grand baby earthside. The help that I have to support my other children while I am not able is maybe the most comforting thought of all. All hands on deck. Forever lol,” said Duff.
In one of the images, a board of inspiration can be seen balancing on top of a bath tub. Featuring the names of Duff’s two other children, Luca and Banks, the board contains different words of positivity and affirmations that no doubt helped during childbirth. The photos shared by Duff don’t just highlight the beautiful nature of childbirth, but show the strength and emotion that mums have to go through such an experience.
“This is hard work…every way a woman brings a baby in is. from getting pregnant, to c-sections, hospital or home births, the breast feeding journey…and raising these little beings responsibly to be stand up, confident, kind citizens of the world. It’s completely consuming. A tedious, magical, miraculous adventure…So cheers alright mothers. You make mountains move daily,” wrote Duff.
