Jennifer Hudson Talks About Recovery From Birth

Jennifer Hudson had to have a caesarean section when she gave birth to her son, David, this past August.  While many women struggle to recover afterwards (it is a surgical procedure, after all!) Jennifer’s experience wasn’t too bad at all!

She explained: “Everybody told me how much it was going to hurt afterwards but I think I have a different tolerance for pain than others. By the night after I had the baby, I’m like, ‘Look, I can’t sit in this bed anymore. I’ve got to get up!’  I’ve been up and about since he was born. To me, the pain is no different than when you work out a muscle you’ve never worked out before and it’s sore.”

Well, as long as she made sure to take care of herself and not overdo it, I’m glad she had such a positive attitude about the recovery period.

She also talked a little about her little bundle of joy: “He has a lot of personality, like David. He’s always been a good sleeper. His favourite time to smile now is diaper changes. Or when he spits up on you – he just cracks up like he thinks it’s the funniest thing. And his bottle is his pacifier. His best friend is that bottle – that’s all he wants.”
