Jaime King: Why I’m Speaking Out About My Struggles with Infertility

01/14/2015 at 03:00 PM ET

Jaime King speaks out about her painful fertility struggle and her journey from wild child to doting mom. Subscribe now to get instant access to her candid interview in this issue of PEOPLE.

Last July, actress Jaime King revealed her long struggle to conceive in an Instagram post.

Now, she’s putting it all out there in hopes to support other women and encourage those who are going through a similar struggle, to start the conversation and talk with one another.

“I was hiding what I was going through for so long, and I hear about so many women going through what I went through. If I’m open about it, hopefully it won’t be so taboo to talk about it,” she told PEOPLE exclusively during a recent interview at her Beverly Hills home.

After seeing many physicians, she met Dr. Randy Harris, an obstetrician-gynecologist, who diagnosed her with polycystic ovarian syndrome, a condition that affects female sex hormones and fertility, as well as endometriosis.

Jaime King Shares the Meaning Behind Her New Tattoo

10/10/2014 at 10:00 AM ET

Motherhood has officially left its mark on Jaime King.

The Hart of Dixie actress, and mom to 1-year-old son James Knight, showed off her latest tattoo — a sword topped with praying hands and a circle of stars — Wednesday on Instagram.

And with many of her followers guessing at the meaning behind her new ink job, King, 35, followed up with a second post on Friday to set the record straight.

“I wanted a sword for every Knight had their special one [and] to represent ‘the sword of truth,’ which I believe means to live authenticity, cut through any illusions — to be a spiritual warrior,” she writes. “It says Knight in the blade. There is a heart at the helm representing the loving trinity of myself, my husband [and] child.”

A picture is worth a thousand words — or more than 19,000 likes.

Jaime King is in awe of the “most beautiful responses” she has received after posting an Instagram photo of her son James Knight nursing, she told PEOPLE Wednesday at the launch of OMEGA Dark Side of the Moon in New York City.

The Hart of Dixie actress says the sweet moment between her and her now 8-month-old baby boy — captured by King’s doula — was a very intimate moment in her life.

“I feel like now that I’m a mother, I realize that there’s a huge schism out there; that women feel judged because of what they choose to do and how they choose to feed their child. Why should we hide it?” King, 35, asks.

Following in the footsteps of Miranda Kerr and Gisele Bündchen, Jaime King is the latest celeb mom to spotlight the beautiful bond between a mother and her baby.

And the Hart of Dixie actress is hoping to celebrate her baby bliss without judgment.

On Sunday, King posted an older photo of herself snuggling with newborn son James Knight, who is nursing as his mom gazes into the camera.

“#JamesKnight is now 8 months old! These are the moments a mother lives for,” she captioned the pic. “Breastfeeding should not be taboo — and bottle feeding should not be judged — it’s ALL fun for the whole family.”

The first-time mom has been open about her dedication to breastfeeding her baby boy — and foregoing any fad diets. “I breastfed exclusively for a long time. It’s a commitment, but it’s worth it,” she told PEOPLE in April.

It’s only been six months since Jaime King and husband Kyle Newman welcomed their son James Knight and while she’s already returned to her former svelte self, life in general is a lot more family oriented for the star.

“I go hiking with my husband and my son,” the Hart of Dixie actress tells PEOPLE of her desired workout regime. “I just like the bonding time that we have when we do that.”

But just because she is with her family doesn’t mean that she’s not focused on her body.

“I apply all the tricks I learn from Mary Helen Bower‘s Ballet Beautiful DVDs, which I also do,” King says. “When I am pushing the stroller and going on walks it’s like doing Pilates at the same time because you are really using your core and your arms. I just try and be focused when I am doing it.”

Motherhood started off as a labor of love for Jaime King.

With her director husband, Kyle Newman, on location when it was time for the Hart of Dixie star to welcome their son, the actress immediately turned to her good friends: Lana del Rey and her baby boy’s godfather, Topher Grace.

“I was in labor for 26 hours and Topher was my surrogate husband … and [Lana’s] like my sister, one of my best friends,” King, 34, told PEOPLE at the Hunters Alley launch party in Los Angeles on Thursday.

“They were there with me for 26 hours seeing things you would never imagine friends would ever, ever, ever see. We turned it in to a slumber party — they slept on couches and chairs next to my hospital bed.”
