Amy Schumer is feeling the need to nix her doula. The actress recently revealed the real reason she split with her doula, Domino Kirke.
Schumer, Kirke’s husband, sat down with actor Penn Badgley on the latest episode of podcrushed podcast, and explained that she felt that Kirke was so amazing and gorgeous.
Despite the fact that Kirke helped Schumer and husband Chris Fischer during pregnancy with their child, Jean – whom they welcomed in May 2019 – the comedian decided that she should have an assistant doula while she was recovering from her C-section. Will have to let go
“Was true, and it’s so unfair to her, but Domino’s is like a goddess,” shared Schumer. “She’s a real mermaid floating around the house… [she’s] Just cutie and when she touches you, you just melt. And she was really a family member.”
Then why did he get the boot? According to Schumer, “I just felt so weak. I was like, ‘I can’t see this Botticelli f**king goddess swimming around my house while I was bleeding out.'”
Originally, Schumer had planned on having a doula-assisted natural birth. However, after a long and painful struggle with hyperemesis gravidarum—a condition that causes intense nausea and vomiting during pregnancy—she opted for a hospital C-section. She said that she planned to continue working with Kirke during her postpartum period, but eventually felt the need to let her go.
“I just didn’t have the strength to allow her the luxury of having her around my house,” Schumer recalled. “I was like, ‘I guess you can’t come anymore.'”
