In an interview for Elle's August 2020 digital issue, she shared her experience of new motherhood, from the pain of childbirth to life postpartum. "First of all, I had no idea it was going to hurt that bad," Graham said of being in labor, jumping right into the real details of childbirth. "Let me just go there for a second: Every mother talks about, 'Oh yeah, it's painful.' Whether they got an epidural or not, or a C-section, whatever happened, they're like, 'Yeah, it hurt.' And they say it kind of calmly like that. They don't go into the astronomical pain that you go through, especially if you choose to go natural. So there's that."
In honor of International Women's Day 2020, Graham shared a candid photo of herself during labor with her son Isaac on Instagram, proving that becoming a mom makes you one tough cookie.
"This is the face of my greatest strength," she captioned the emotional photo of her home birth. "The greatest pain I've ever known and the greatest accomplishment that I've ever achieved. On this International Women's Day understand that despite whatever pain or trial we have all experienced as women, we are also strong, powerful and capable of accomplishing greatness. Happy International Women's Day! Let's all celebrate our, and each other's strengths today."
