Audrey Roloff is giving fans an intimate look at her at-home birthing experience, including a glimpse at her postpartum body just one hour after the arrival of her son, Radley.
Earlier this week, the "Little People, Big World" alum and her husband, Jeremy Roloff, welcomed their third child by opting for a water birth at home.
On Thursday, the 30-year-old took to her Instagram story to share intimate photos with her more than 1.5 million followers, including a selfie taken shortly after giving birth. Roloff proudly displayed her postpartum figure to praise the "miraculous" things the female body is capable of.
"The 1-hour postpartum mirror selfie," she wrote. "God made our bodies to do miraculous things like bringing life into the world."
After announcing the brith of their son, the couple was quickly met with supportive comments from fans praising the pair for having a home birth. Roloff shared that her son was born "en caul" meaning he was born while still inside his amniotic sac.
"It’s a boy!" Roloff captioned the family portrait. "Welcome to the world, Radley Knight Roloff. Born 11.8.21 at 6:32 am 9.1 lbs 21.5 in and born en caul which was wild!"
"I can’t wait to share his birth story with you soon," the mother-of-three added. "We are so grateful to god for answering so many specific prayers in regards to this labor and delivery. A word that I had been praying over this birth was 'harmony.' It truly was one of the most harmonious experiences."
"Congratulations to you both! It's so great that you guys decided to do an at-home water birth," one Instagram user commented. "Also, so brave to share your story and postpartum photo on social media. Can't wait to see more."
"You look amazing!" added another. "I have never seen a postpartum body so soon after giving birth. It's so crazy what a woman's body can do — we really do not get enough credit. Congrats you two."
"So proud of you both for having a water birth! It takes serious courage, but so rewarding to do things the natural way," a follower said. "Thank you for being so transparent!"
