Ilana Glazer is enjoying her new era as a mom.

While attending the Writers Guild Awards in New York City on Sunday, April 14, the comedian and actress, 36, spoke with PEOPLE about her new movie Babes, in which she plays a character who gets pregnant after a one-night stand.

Saying that her journey into motherhood has informed her most recent work, Glazer says that the movie is a "very joyous approach to parenthood because I am in a very fortunate position where I'm having an amazing experience."

"I mean it's incredibly hard, but no complaints for sure," Glazer adds.

Glazer shares her 2-year-old daughter with husband David Rooklin.

The Broad City alum spoke with PEOPLE in 2022 about becoming a mom, revealing the things she wished she'd known before welcoming her daughter.

Glazer said that becoming a mom so far has been "mind-blowing."

"I'm looking at [my daughter] and I'm like, 'Woah, dude.' And how she's growing and learning every day and how it makes me realize that I'm growing and learning every day — okay, not at the rate at which a baby does — but still, just our unfolding."

Although she noted that she loved being a mom, Glazer said there were a few things she wished she'd been clued in about.

"I wish someone had told me that sleep was one of the hardest parts of being pregnant," she said. "Your body prepares for being up at all hours with the baby. I wish I was told that so I knew to sleep until like 2 p.m. any day that I could."

Glazer also added that she wished she knew "there's more support to be had for being a working mom."

"There's a real community now and there's so much visibility about it and I have to remember to take it," she continued, admitting, "I have trouble taking help where there is help."
