Jamie Otis is still basking in the glow of delivering her rainbow baby.

However, the Married at First Sight star is doing a bit of reflection as well.

After sharing the good news on social media a few days ago about the arrival of baby Hayes, Jamie and her husband Doug are spending some quality time with their newborn.

The couple has been receiving a lot of congratulatory messages from fans over the past few days.

Now, Jamie is taking a few minutes from mommy duties to give her over 600,000 followers an update.

The mom-of-two recently posted a lengthy message on her Instagram page, while reflecting on the birth of her second child.

Jamie reflects on motherhood

Jamie shared a few photos of herself and baby Hayes, along with a reflective message.

“It is so amazing what a woman’s body can do! I mean, us women get one little sperm from a man & then we proceed to grow a tiny HUMAN inside us! …don’t even get me started on how strong we are to birth that tiny human — whether he’s pushed out or cut out, medicated or unmedicated — we are freakin superheroes!”

Otis also delved a bit into the process of delivering her son via home birth.

“I pushed this little guy out in a tub of water right next to my bed in the middle of my bedroom. After I got him in my arms I got out of the tub with the placenta still inside me & attached to him, climbed up on my bed, delivered my placenta and got stitched up while my son snuggled on my chest. I kinda felt like a bad-azz super mama for a hot second!”

The 33-year-old reality tv personality also discussed some of the issues she experienced during pregnancy. But she made it clear that she is certainly counting her blessings.

“I wouldn’t change *any* of this journey. I feel so BLESSED to get to be a mommy again. I don’t know what you think, but I def think the fourth trimester is the hardest trimester… physically, mentally, & emotionally!”

Jamie added, “If anyone has tips to make it easier I’ll take ‘em! I’ve done this before but I’m wide open to learning/trying something new to heal faster.”

The mama also teased that she and Doug have an announcement to share, so I guess we’ll have to stay tuned for that!
