The new mom, who gave birth to baby Brooklyn Doris Daly on Sunday, Nov. 4, has been recovering from an emergency cesarian section after complications from preeclampsia forced her to deliver well ahead of her Thanksgiving Day due date.
On Instagram Saturday, Nov. 10, Moore showed a photo of her bruised arm with the words, “Worth every bruise, scare, and or loss of sleep…I’m so in love.”
Moore shares baby Brooklyn with her husband, Marc Daly, and the couple conceived the girl, who was 5 lbs. 12 oz. when born, through in vitro fertilization. Just a year ago, Moore was photographed at a fertility center in Barbados. She opened up about her experience with the clinic to the Opera Magazine in October.
“I was 46. We tried on our own for a little while, but we had to be realistic about the fact that our best chances were through IVF,” Moore said. “I did a lot of research, and we went back to that same clinic I’d gone to years before. The process failed. After some heavy vetting and research, we found another place in the States that we liked. And this time, on our second attempt, the IVF worked.”
Moore told People magazine she didn’t have as bad of a time as others expressed they’d had with the hormone injections.
“I think I was okay. I think I felt a little emotional but I wasn’t going zero to 100 or anything like that,” she said. “It just wasn’t as bad as I heard other people go through. The injections were fine, I got through that by myself, it was fine. I didn’t feel crazy, I didn’t feel like I was losing control or anything like that.”
