‘New Amsterdam’ Actress Lets Fans ‘See the Real Real’ After Enduring ‘Scary’ Emergency C-Section

Just a few days after actress Janet Montgomery welcomed her first child into the world, the new mom opened up about the scary journey she had welcoming her bundle of joy.

On March 1, Montgomery gave birth to a beautiful baby girl whom she named Sunday Juno. However, in an Instagram post she shared a few days after the birth, she revealed the toll cesarean sections can take on a mom.

Montgomery shared two photos to Instagram, showing her fans the truth behind her delivery story. The first picture is of her and her baby girl two days after she was born and the other was just one day after the c-section.

She wrote:

I wanted to share both so you can see the real real. I was incredibly swollen after surgery and my feet and legs still are! C section recovery is no joke.

Montgomery also shared the details of her delivery.

She began:

We were discharged from hospital today and I want to say a huge thank you to the wonderful nurses and doctors at New York-Presbyterian Labor and Delivery. We went in Thursday evening when my contractions started and after a grueling 22 hours of laboring, me and baby both got sick.

After both she and the baby fell ill during labor, a team of doctors diagnosed Montgomery with a uterus infection.

We were discharged from hospital today and I want to say a huge thank you to the wonderful nurses and doctors at New York Presbyterian Labor and Delivery. We went in Thursday evening when my contractions started and after a grueling 22 hours of laboring, me and baby both got sick. My incredible doctors called that our beautiful baby girl was in distress and I had contracted a uterus infection. Dr Raymond Wong who has been on this journey with me from the beginning of my pregnancy kept me and my baby safe and calm in one of the scariest most precious moments of my life. Sunday was delivered via emergency Caesarian at 8.59pm and from every single doctor, nurse, PA I encountered in my four days in hospital I felt nothing but confidence from. Not only are they all great at their jobs but they go the extra mile with love for their patients. So thank you all of you. Most people get excited to leave hospital but I am a little sad because I love you all so much! The first photo was taken 2 days after my delivery and the second photo was taken one day after. I wanted to share both so you can see the real real. I was incredibly swollen after surgery and my feet and legs still are! C section recovery is no joke 😱#newyorkpresbyterianhospital #laboranddelivery #csectionrecovery
