Goldie Hawn shared some incredible advice for first-time moms

The other day on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the audience was packed with mothers. So, it made sense for Goldie Hawn to give advice for first-time moms. We mean, she successfully raised Kate Hudson and sons Oliver and Wyatt, so her knowledge is probably pretty good.

As expected, she dished out some completely perfect advice that likely put the audience at ease.

First, there’s the feeling that happens right after you give birth.

"Suddenly you feel kind of weird, kind of empty. And now you're looking at this beautiful baby, and you don't know whether you want to stick it back in, or keep him," Hawn joked.

(It’s true.)

But then, she talked a bit more about raising a child. And what she had to say is pretty beautiful.

"They come out their own little people, with all their own lessons to learn. And we have to mother them in a way where we recognize who they are, and every child you have is different," Hawn said. "Don't feel you have ownership of them all the time."

Pretty powerful words, especially on the fly! Well said, Goldie.

Amy Schumer, Hawn’s co-star in the film Snatched, also had some words to say about motherhood. While not a mother herself, why not, right?

Her advice is, more or less, for certain moms to just “shut their yap.”

"Everyone pushes their politics on you of what they think you should do for your kid, but it's your kid," Schumer said.

She makes a great point. As far as motherhood is concerned, there’s no one right way to handle it!
