Sarah Levy becomes aware of exhaustion and motherhood.

On Monday, the 36-year-old took to Instagram to open up about her postpartum experience.

In July, Levy welcomed her first child, baby James Eugene, with husband Graham Outerbridge.

The Toronto native was interviewed by HATCH, a maternity and postpartum clothing company, who asked Levy a series of questions about postpartum life and how she’s coping.

When asked to describe both her pregnancy and postpartum experience in three words, the actress replied, “Miraculous, exciting and exhausting.”

Later in the chat, HATCH asked Levy what surprised her about postpartum, to which the “Schitt’s Creek” alum revealed she was “how tired.”

“Everyone warns you, they say you’re exhausted as a new parent, and you kind of think yeah, I know. I’m sure I’ll be exhausted. It’s a whole new level of exhaustion and that I wasn’t prepared for that,” Levy added.

At the end of the video, the Screen Actors Guild winner shared some advice for expectant mothers to take time for yourself.

“Read quietly, walk, hike, draw, paint. Whatever you do brings you joy and don’t feel selfish doing it,” she said. “My advice to new mums, which is so difficult because I feel like everyone has advice, but every day is different and know that the moment will pass no matter what. Don’t try to do more than what you are doing in this moment.”

In the comments, fans thanked Levy for her honesty and shared their experience with postpartum fatigue.

“Thank you for saying that! I feel like the word ‘exhaustion’ doesn’t even cover postpartum sleep deprivation and I was unprepared,” one follower commented.

“The sleep deprivation was the worst. He’s 23 now but I remember it like it was yesterday, it makes me tired!” shared someone else.

“You are doing amazing and thanks for staying true to life,” one fan wrote.

“You are so inspiring and I admire you so much! It’s refreshing to see something raw and real about postpartum here!” added another.
