To say that 2017 has been a banner year for the Roloff family would be an underestimate. Not only have both Matt and Amy found happy and healthy relationships, this year Molly got married, Jacob publish his first book, and both Zach and Jeremy became first-time parents with the announcements of their little ones, Zach’s son Jackson and Jeremy’s daughter Ember.
Around the same time that Jackson made his May 12 arrival, his parents revealed that he has achonodroplasia — the most common form of dwarfism, and the same kind that his father, Zach, has. So by the time Ember was born on Sept. 10, fans began to wonder if she’s a little person as well. And it turns out, she’s not! Check out the video below to learn more about baby Ember!
Since Ember’s highly anticipated arrival (she came several days late), Auj has been candid with her fans about how becoming a mother has been incredible, but it hasn’t been easy. After Ember’s birth, Audrey struggled with breastfeeding, mastitis, and postpartum depression.
“I won’t sugar coat it… These past two weeks have been HARD. The first 24 hours with Ember were bliss, but after that it was as if I weent back into labor again,” she explained on Instagram. “I was well prepared for the pain and suffering that comes with childbirth, but I was not prepared for the pain and suffering that comes afterwards. I got all the things… The common ‘TMI’ postpartum hurts, along with severe engorgement, too much milk, not enough milk, blisters, bruises, clogged ducts, and mastitis. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but the pain I’ve experienced while breastfeeding has been comparable to unmedicated labor contractions. Inevitably, all of this has left me feeling like I am failing my baby, frustrated, discouraged, and heart ached. But even though the tearful sleepless nights persist, so will I. I will continue to pour myself out in sacrificial love for this baby girl who makes every hurt worth enduring.”
