Jamie posted a photo of a long note on her account, which she has since taken down, explaining her eight-year struggle with trying to conceive before she became a mum. The note read, 'For all the struggling women & moms out there that think they are alone – This is the truth about conceiving my son and struggles after. 8 yrs of pain and undiagnosed PCOS & Endometriosis.

'9 doctors until Dr. Randy Harris diagnosed me & saved my life from a severe ectopic, 5 miscarriages, 5 rounds of IVF, 26 IUI's, most with no outcome, 4½ years of trying to conceive, 26 hours of brutal labor, early delivery b/c of sudden preeclampsia, tearing and tearing after the stitches were in once I was home, milk supply issues, painful mastitis, uncontrollable crying while breast feeding, worked until the day before I [gave] birth and went back after 6 weeks after because I was afraid of letting others down,' Jamie wrote.

The actress captioned the image, writing, ‘For all the women out there who think they are alone in this #youarenotalone #ihavetobebravetosupportothers #realtalkhatterrifiesus’

‘This baby was a long time in the making and I feel like the universe put a little extra magic dust in him,’ Jamie told ABC News. ‘He’s like the happiest, most joyful, social and loving [baby].’
