Childbirth... It isn't the most glamorous of events, is it?

There's blood, there's gore, there are banshee-like screams... And not to mention all the other bodily fluids that come out to play. So you'd be forgiven if you didn't want to take any photos or selfies while you're squeezing a baby out of your nether regions.

Childbirth will always be gruesome, and nothing will ever change that.

So, it's quite understandable that not many birthing mothers are keen to take photographs of their labor.

Because when you're tomato-red, sweating and screaming swear words at your partner, why would you possibly want to take a selfie?

Well, there are some moms out there who would apparently enjoy a quick selfie during their labor...


Each to their own, right?

Yeah, this is an actual thing apparently...

Pushing away, grimacing through contractions, oh, and taking selfies. It doesn't sound like the usual childbirth set up, does it?

But, sadly for these moms...

Their arms simply aren't long enough to take a photo of everything... If you know what I mean.

So, the thing none of us thought we'd need has been invented...

The childbirth selfie stick.

It's exactly how it sounds...
