Well, I don't think it was so much Post-Oscar as it was Post-Baby. She had to give herself time to get used to being a mother and bond with her baby before going back to work.

Now that she will start to work again it will mean long hours and nannies so this will be a first for her so I'm sure it will be stressful until she adjust to the changes.
