Amy Schumer is working to normalize women's bodies after giving birth.

The 39-year-old actor and comedian shared a nude mirror selfie on Instagram, showing her C-section scar from the birth of her 1-year-old son, Gene, in May 2019.

“Feeling like my c section looks cute today!” she wrote in the caption, adding the hashtags #hotgirlwinter and #csection.

Fans shared notes of support in the comments, thanking Schumer for her candid post and for keeping it real when it comes to what can happen to your body after birth, especially via Cesarean section delivery.

“Every scar has a story."

“Beautiful body!💕🌱” one user commented. “I need to love my c-section more. 🙏♥️”

Another fan wrote, “Thank you for helping me feel more okay with mine!”

“I had one too!” a fan chimed in. “Now I appreciate that scar bc without that scar, I wouldn’t have my beautiful girl!”

“Every scar has a story,” a commenter added. “I love all of mine ❤️❤️❤️ stories of survival and life.”

This wasn't the first time Schumer has been open with her fans and followers about her pregnancy.

In 2019, she posted a collage of photos from that year on Instagram along with the caption, "It was a very good year." The post included various snaps — and in true Schumer fashion, one showed her leaning over a toilet while naked on a bathroom floor.

Earlier this month, Schumer appeared virtually on TODAY, telling Savannah Guthrie all about her son’s newest trick.

"He's doing really big things right now. He's standing on one leg, and he's pretty proud about that," the "I Feel Pretty" star said, before calling in her husband, Chris Fischer, to bring Gene into the room. “This is the most exciting thing, I should tell Chris to bring him in. Wait, I'll just tell Chris to bring him in because it's pretty funny."

Schumer discussed another one of Gene's skills that will certainly come in handy the next time he’s in New York City: hailing a cab.

"He can hail a taxi. You don't believe me, right? But he can," she said. "He can't speak yet. He only says a couple words. But that guy, if you need a taxi, he can hail you one."

When Fischer brought their son into the frame, the “Expecting Amy” star asked him, “Genie, can you hail a taxi? How do you get a taxi?”

Immediately, the 1-year-old’s arm raised into the air to mimic the motion, earning some well-deserved praise from his momma.
