Amy Schumer did not receive the warmest welcome after maternity leave from fellow Instagram moms. This is after she posted a picture of herself on Instagram captioned "I’m back."

First-time mom, actress and stand-up comedian, Amy Schumer, gave birth to her son Gene Attell Fischer on 5 May 2019. 

Two weeks after the birth of their "royal baby" she was back at work, with her first gig being a stand-up performance at the New York City Comedy Cellar.

Not here for mom-shamers

But some moms on Instagram didn't have very nice things to say about her decision to start working again, slamming her for leaving her son "too soon" to go back to work. 

"Jesus, Amy. Let the stitches dissolve first. I’m still on the couch and my youngest is three,” said one person.

"Already? That’s insane! And inhumane. Contract or not, you need to be allowed at least 6 weeks of maternity [leave]," commented a second.

"I’m sorry. What?! Didn’t you birth a human like 5 minutes ago?" another asked.

But Amy's not having it.

The following day Amy posted a picture of herself breast pumping and addressed her critics.

The new mom wrote, "Sending out love to the moms shaming me for doing stand-up last night!"


Amy's newest breast-pumping photo garnered positive comments from her followers, including Demi Lovato who said, "You’re a rockstar."

Applauding her for her bravery Selma Blair said, "Who the fudge would shame a mom for doing what she does? And how the hell did you do it?"

One social media user even quoted Beyoncé: ”Strong enough to bear the children. Then get back to business."
