The Keeping Up with the Kardashians shared a series of videos on her Instagram Stories. She revealed that postpartum has not been easy for her, saying she was having more difficulty after her second child. “This experience for me personally has been a little harder than with my daughter,” Jenner shared. 

“It’s not easy mentally, physically, spiritually; it’s just crazy,” she continued. “I didn’t just want to get back to life without saying that because I think we can look on the internet, for other moms going through it right now, we can go on the internet, and it might look a lot easier for other people, and put the pressure on us, but it hasn’t been easy for me.”

In a later Story, she added, “It’s OK not to be OK,” and encouraged other mothers to “stop putting pressure on ourselves to be ‘back.’”

Fans are reacting to the cosmetics mogul opening up about her postpartum experience

Many fans praised Jenner for her honesty, saying she was helping to normalize open and vulnerable discussions around the subject. One fan tweeted, “I’m glad Kylie Jenner spoke on postpartum struggles and how hard it can be mentally,” while another fan tweeted, “Thank you @KylieJenner for opening up about postpartum. You are helping normalize this very difficult phase for women 🙌🏼”
