"It’s taking my uterus more time to return to its normal state this time around, but honestly I have never loved my body more than I have this postpartum," she continued. "A lot of you have asked about my recovery, and I received several stitches and am slowly healing physically — the mental and emotional healing is hard to put a finger on, but I am giving myself grace to process everything."
Friends and fans of Roper appreciated her honesty with the post, and many commented with their support.
"Thanks for normalizing what post pregnancy *really* looks like," wrote. "Hollywood makes it seem like women 'bounce back' so quickly but that just isn’t the case.
