Carrie Bickmore Is Struggling With New Motherhood Like Everybody Else

With a raw post, The Project host perfectly sums up the experience

In every sense of the word, Carrie Bickmore is a superwoman. 

The 38-year-old mother-of-three works two high-profile jobs, one as the host of Channel Ten’s The Project and the other as the co-host of the Hit Network’s Carrie & Tommy show. 

Not to mention she’s been successfully running Carrie’s Beanies 4 Brain Cancer Foundation since 2015, helping raise millions towards brain cancer research. 

That’s why fans have resonated so highly with Carrie’s latest post, detailing the struggles she’s facing as a new mum of three

Sharing a sweet snap breastfeeding her new daughter Adelaide alongside partner Chris Walker, Carrie shared a brutally honest caption detailing some of the ups and downs of new motherhood. 

Some of Carrie’s ‘downs’ include: Googling ‘what is reflux at 3am’, surviving on four hours broken sleep, being diagnosed with mastitis, and eating meals with one hand. 

But, the doting mum says these are enormously outweighed by the ‘ups’, with her “bursting with love and gratitude.”

Carrie’s post was flooded with supportive comments. 

“This is so so accurate! Sums up everything I have felt with mine. Thanks for your honesty,” one mother commented.

Another said, “Couldn’t have said it better myself Carrie! That list sums up the newborn fog perfectly.”

“Ohhhhh I here you,” a third echoed. “Experienced all you described but as you know there’s the light at the end of the tunnel.”

Adelaide is Carrie’s second child with partner Chris Walker, joining three-year-old daughter Evie.

Carrie is also mother to ten-year-old Oliver, who she had with late husband Greg Lange
