The newly became mom of a little baby girl and the model Ireland Baldwin took a moment to appreciate and praised her partners’ parents and mom Kim Basinger in a social media post about her mental health.
The fashion model posted a lengthy message on her Instagram on 30 May 2023 and also shared her experience with “health anxiety” during her pregnancy.
“I haven’t really taken a moment to process all this. I just wanted to write a message here for soon-to-be moms. I know I said I wouldn’t dedicate my Instagram to my pregnancy/mom content, but getting these words across is super important to me and I hope it helps someone even just a little.” she wrote.
“I really struggled in my pregnancy as many of us do. Not just by puking everywhere. I don’t miss that. As someone who suffers tremendously from health anxiety, pregnancy shifted everything into overdrive.” she added
“Every thought in my head pertained to hurting the baby. Hurting myself. Blame game. I’m doing it all wrong. Am I too much caffeine? Did I bend over too hard? Was my shower too hot? Am I crying too much? Why am I crying again? Do my feet look swollen? Am I even going to make a good mother?” she said
“I spent the last 9 months worrying about pulmonary embolisms, blood clots, and pre-eclampsia. I read countless pregnancy horror stories and watched negative birthing video after video until I’d go numb from it all. I worried I wouldn’t make it through my delivery or something terrible would happen. Then it all” she added in the post.
She then wrote, “I couldn’t be more grateful for my partners’ parents and my mom who visited me” without making any mention of Alec.
Ireland added more to the note and added to the post a cute photo of her baby girl.
