Audrey Roloff Addresses New Health Concern: This is "No Joke"

by at .

Mentally, Audrey Roloff is happier than she's ever been right now.

That's what happens when you become a first-time mother.

Physically, however, the Little People, Big World star is struggling.

A New Family

On September 10, Audrey and Jeremy welcomed a daughter named Ember Jean into their loving household, over a week after the tiny human being was due.

But the wait was obviously well worth it, considering the sheer joy Audrey and Jeremy have been experiencing ever since.

"We are in complete awe of the miracle of life, and feeling so blessed to be entrusted with such a beautiful daughter," wrote Audrey shortly after giving birth.

She added via Instagram:

"Sweet little Ember, may you always be a light in the darkness, glowing in all you do, enduring, feirce, and hard to extinguish;)

"May you always believe in the more that is within you, and when stoked and kindled by your Creator - may you be able to burn and glow even MORE than you ever could on you own."

But while Roloff is high over the proverbial moon concerning her child, the reality star also has a health concern to now worry about.

In an IG Stories post she shared this week, an sick-looking Roloff said that she could “now sympathize with all you moms out there who’ve had mastitis… it’s no joke.”

For the unaware: Mastitis is a breast inflammation usually caused by infection.

The condition can be caused by plugged milk ducts, engorgement or milk stasis... and it can suck a whole lot.

One can feel as if one has come down with a severe case of the flu if one has mastitis, which is typically cured through antibiotics and rest.

But good luck getting rest with a newborn at home, right?!?

We have no doubt Jeremy will at least do all he can to help his wife rest whenever possible.

Thankfully, the condition often clears up after just a few days and breastfeeding actually helps it do so because it clears the milk out from the boob.

This is especially great news for Ember. Eat up, little one!

Upon becoming a dad, Jeremy wrote the following on his Instagram page:

So much to say, but for now we're resting at home soaking In the present - honored that we've been entrusted with this little life. Welcome to our family Ember Jean, we're so excited to meet you.

May you be a glowing, fierce, and radiant light in this world.

The all-new season of Little People, Big World is expected to chronicle Audrey's pregnancy and birth.

It will air some time this fall. And we'll be tuning in!
