It's been a minute since comedian Amy Schumer dropped a bit of raw motherhood on the gram but sure enough, the urge has returned, inspiring the mom of one to share this TMI post. 

Captioning a nearly complete nude with just one line: "Feeling like my C-section looks cute today!"

And it was a sentiment only other moms who have been through it got, as the compliments and "Ok Amy I see you" nods came pouring in. 

"That scar represents power, life and healing. You’re beautiful," said a fellow mom, while another commented, "it’s a beautiful battle scar". 

Other moms credited her for being brave enough to show off the scar and that they felt inspired to embrace their own. 

This is what they had to say: 

"Amy you are amazing!!!! So brave!". 

"I had one too! Now I appreciate that scar bc without that scar, I wouldn’t have my beautiful girl!"

"Beautiful body! I need to love my C-section more". 

"You're amazing for women everywhere". 

"C-section high five".  

Schumer has never been shy about sharing her motherhood experiences and if the reaction to her latest post is anything to go by, it's a welcomed voice.
