“You get a lot of advice when your pregnant. And I think people have good intentions, but it’s pretty pushy. (Breastfeeding) wasn’t the right fit for our family—it was too much on me and I was starting to feel bad. And it occurred to me: I can stop breastfeeding. And he’s so healthy, and he’s so good. That pressure is real, but what I realized is that it was self-inflicted. So, I’m not trying to vilify the other women who said these things to me—it’s gonna happen, you’re going to feel all these pressures about a lot of different things about being a mom, or just being a woman. But if you let it get to you, it’s on you. I had to stop and say, no, this is all self-inflicted. I’m going to get rid of this guilt and do what’s right for me and my family and what makes me feel healthy.”

-Amy Schumer, comedian, actress, and mom to Gene, 8 months, via Oprah’s SuperSoul Conversations, January 2020.
