"I was in a lot of pain," the new mom tells us. The Total Divas star then wonders aloud, "Well, pumps had to just like come into existence not long ago, what did people do back in the day, right Bird?" After consulting her adorable little girl, the star adds, "I was really thinking about this. I was thinking, 'How do they pump cows?'"
So Bella, who has talked candidly about her struggle to conceive, went into the bathroom, opened up her breast milk storage bag, and as she explains, "I milked myself like a cow." Bella then triumphantly reports, "I got six ounces!"
After her #winningatmotherhood experience, Bella offers this advice to other pumping moms: "If you're ever stranded and you don't have your pump... hand pump."
