Today, I gave birth to our first child at home. What was supposed to be a beautiful moment of us peacefully greeting our newborn, ended up with the cops knocking on our door. Apparently me giving birth sounds like a domestic dispute. FML

People don't expect what a birth will sound like. They think "Ok, a bunch of grunts and maybe a scream or two at the end". A birth actually sounds nothing like a dispute, but few people outside of the Middle East can recognize the sound of torture, so that's what they default to.

Congrats on your baby :) but I'm sure you could understand how the natural sounds of agony associated with birth might have someone worried lol - it's not like that was your concern at the time. Just funny confusion lol
