If only I looked like that after birth!
After I had my first son, I was pretty much out of consciousness… it was all a blur. I had been given too much epidural and couldn’t effectively push my son out. While being prepped for emergency C-section, I asked to push one more time.
With the help of some crazy-ass vacuum, my little cone-shaped baby finally came out. They rushed him out to put him on antibiotics because I was a Strep-B carrier, and the rest is a complete blur.
There is no way in hell I would ever have been able to stand up and take a photo like this mom did.
One mom gets brave and shows the world what real birth looks like and it may not be pretty, but it’s totally real.
