Mom Doesn’t Hold Back in This Hilarious Recount on What Labor Is Really Like

Whenever I speak to my friends who have kids they never tell me about the downsides of giving birth. Yes, I’ve heard that labor pains are like nothing else on earth. My mom’s a retired midwife so I know about the vaginal tears and feeling the urge to go to the toilet.

But the other stuff – the really gory stuff – they’ve largely kept from me. Thanks to one young mom in Scotland, I now have a full sense of how bad giving birth can get.
