Laura Prepon Back on “Orange is the New Black” Set After Giving Birth

Posted by Jeanne on September 20, 2017

It’s hard to be a working woman sometimes, especially when work obligations pull you away from your baby so soon after giving birth. That’s a struggle that Orange is the New Black actress, Laura Prepon, is learning right now.

After delivering her daughter (whom she shares with fiancé, Ben Foster) last month, she’s already back on set to film the upcoming season of the Netflix show.

On Instagram she captioned a phone with: “Back at work! @oitnb season 6! #workingmom #herewego #alexvause.”

The show was renewed for three more seasons back in February so it looks like the sixth season will air sometime next summer (2018).

Hopefully, Prepon actually feels physically recovered and mentally prepared enough to go back to work so soon. Every woman has to make the decision that is best for her but, usually, new moms are advised to take it easy for, at least, the first six weeks.

Netflix – you really couldn’t push filming back a little bit to make it easier for this mama to spend some time with her newborn and not have to push herself so soon? She might be totally fine but it’s just a lot of pressure.
