Garcia admitted that though she knew recovering from giving birth to a whole new human being and learning to breastfeed was no easy feat, "I never anticipated how hard it would be to go through both at the same time." It has been less than a week since she gave birth, so we can imagine how tough it must be! The couple opted for a water birth at home and was helped by a  "a midwife (plus a nurse) and a doula," she wrote for

As for what's sure to be a ton of well-wishers and congratulatory messages, Garcia wrote about how "grateful" they are for them—but it's clear her hands are a little too full to reply right now. "I'm so sorry I haven't been able to get to anyone yet," she wrote. Her recovery and baby Amari are definitely top priority.
