The clip featured Cardi B’s viral “Oh my god, what’s that?” Soundbite plays over it.

“I think it makes sense too, we suddenly have this massive responsibility upon us as we leave the hospital…in a diaper…deprived of sleep, emotionally charged but also exhausted, trying to put ourselves back together and not forgetting…in pain .’
The new mom continued: “This new responsibility is filled with love, wonder and awe, but no one is warning you of the same amount of fear that lives within you now. It’s the most unbearable love you’ve ever felt and it’s overwhelming, at least for me it was.”
She then shared a number of tools she uses to combat the worrying thoughts, including taking “deep cleansing breaths” and shaking her hand in front of her eyes and saying “no” and imagining “that the image will destroy and has disappeared”.
