Amy Schumer reveals why she dumped her doula, Domino Kirke, during her postpartum recovery

Amy Schumer has revealed she fired Penn Badgley's wife Domino Kirke as her doula after giving birth because she felt

Amy Schumer has admitted she fired actor Penn Badgley’s wife Domino Kirke as her doula shortly after giving birth because she felt insecure about having a “goddess flying around her house” after her C-section.

The 41-year-old comedian made the confession to husband Kirk while appearing on his Podcrushed podcast, in which she explained to the You star, 35, that she felt “so vulnerable” after the birth of her son that she didn’t. I don’t have the “strength” for Kirke (38) to continue working with her.

Schumer, who revealed earlier this year that she underwent liposuction to boost her self-esteem, described Kirk as a “family member” who employed her during her pregnancy to help her with the birthing process.

However, after the birth of her son Gene, now three, in May 2019, something changed.

“The truth was, and that’s quite unfair [Domino]”After I had Gen, I was recovering from a C-section,” she told Badgley.

“Domino is like a goddess. It is a real floating siren around the house. And she’s so beautiful, and when she touches you, it’s like you melt. She was truly a member of the family.”

Schumer, 41, admitted during an appearance on Badgley’s podcast that her treatment of Kirke, 38, was “unfair” and added that she became “family” before her son Gene was born.

Reflecting on the insecurities she felt at the time, the I Feel Pretty star continued: “I just felt so vulnerable. I told myself I can’t have this Botticelli goddess floating around my house when I’m apparently bleeding.

“I just didn’t have the strength to afford the luxury of having her at home. I was like, “I don’t think you can come anymore.”

Despite privately struggling with insecurities following the birth of her son, Schumer humorously documented her postpartum recovery on social media, sharing several pictures of herself pumping breast milk and modeling mesh hospital underwear.

Schumer welcomed her first child with husband Chris Fischer in May 2019, with the Snatched star documenting the experience in her 2020 miniseries, Expecting Amy.

Originally, the comedian wanted to have a vaginal birth with the help of a doula, but after she started suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum (HG), which caused severe nausea and vomiting during her pregnancy, she opted for a C-section at the hospital at 39 weeks.

Schumer went on to open up about the experience on Instagram, reflecting on how “lucky” she was to have Kirk by her side during the ordeal.

Schumer welcomed son Gene, now 3, in May 2019 via C-section, originally planning to have a doula birth before he was diagnosed with hyperemesis gravidarum.

Schumer described Kirke (looking directly with Badgley) as a ‘goddess’ and said: ‘I felt so vulnerable… I can’t have this Botticelli goddess floating around my house when I’m like bleeding’.

She started, ‘Okay, here’s my post that’s annoying and my pregnancy post. Women are s***. Men are cool and whatever, but women are f— fighters and capable of anything. I was lucky enough to have a doula. Her name is @domino_kirke @carriagehousebirth’.

The Life & Beth star then shed some light on the doula role they play during pregnancy, continuing, “What do doulas do? I don’t really know, but what she did do was make me and Chris feel completely safe and supportive throughout my pregnancy and birth process. I really recommend getting one if you can.”

A doula is a trained companion rather than a health professional who supports another individual through a significant health-related experience such as childbirth.

Kirke, who is the older sister of Girls actress Jemima Kirke and Mozart in the Jungle Lola Kirke, is a singer and doula who co-founded Carriage House Birth – which provides doula services and education.

In 2020, she stepped down from her role at the company amid criticism that the firm did not prioritize anti-racism. In an apologetic statement, Domino said she was leaving her job as a doula and co-creator to make way for diversity in leadership.

Schumer and her husband Chris Fischer had originally hoped to welcome a second child, but after a painful battle with IVF, they decided to shelve plans for another baby.

Schumer’s candid confession about her postpartum image struggles comes five months after she revealed to the world on Jan. 18 that she underwent liposuction in an effort to feel better about her body.

The comedian proudly showed off the results of her procedure on Instagram, sharing pictures of herself posing on the beach in a black swimsuit — with Schumer revealing at the time that her weight had dropped to 170 pounds.

‘I feel good. Finally,” she wrote, before going on to share more about her struggles with endometriosis, while praising the health professionals who helped her overcome her health challenges.

‘It’s been a journey thanks for helping me get my strength back @seckinmd (endo) @jordanternermd (lipo) never thought I’d be doing anything but talking to me after your 2.5 a year won’t shrink your uterus and you’ll be 40. @paulvincent22 vickie Lee (acupuncture) my girl Nicole from tox my friends and fam. Lets go!’

Two months later, she opened up about her decision to undergo liposuction in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, admitting that she decided to go under the knife after she got tired of looking at herself in the mirror.

“It’s not that I need to bang because I’ve never been known for being hot, but I’ve reached a point where I’m tired of looking at myself in the mirror,” she said.

Amy (seen in March 2022) noticed the weight gain herself and said she was “physically uncomfortable” with the extra pounds around her midsection.

Inside star Amy Schumer has previously expressed her desire to have a second child, revealing in August 2020 that she and her husband underwent IVF in an attempt to conceive another child.

However, Schumer said the IVF process was so ‘tough’ on her that it made her decide she didn’t want to be pregnant again.

“We did IVF and IVF was really hard for me. I don’t think I could ever go through IVF again. I decided I could never be pregnant again,” she said. “We were thinking about a replacement, but I think we’ll hold off for now.

Although she had embryos from her IVF journey, Amy and her husband delayed welcoming a second child due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, in 2021, the comedian had her uterus and appendix removed to treat endometriosis.

The mother-of-one has long been vocal about her battle with the condition – which causes tissue similar to the lining of the womb to start growing in other places, such as the ovaries and fallopian tubes – before she had to undergo a hysterectomy.
