There’s nothing quite like gestating and birthing a baby to kick up your emotions. There are genuine feelings involved, an avalanche of them, but also as soon as the baby is out, your hormones start to reset and that process is…it’s really something, y’all.

Reactions to becoming a mother are all over the board, and they’re all valid – and if you’re curious what it’s like for some women that first night as a mom, these 11 are ready to talk.
