Today, I was elected to learn how to clean the birthing tub at the hospital I work at. Today, I also discovered that while blood doesn't bother me, floating chunks of afterbirth and god knows what else, will cause me to projectile vomit into said tub. Which I still had to clean afterwards. FML

My cousin shat herself while giving birth. I got away with it both times but it's quite common. It feels like an epic burning shit. Obviously with a special outcome.

I was a volunteer nurse for a few years through uni, and it never fails to make me laugh how many women think that they were the exception, and that they never shat themselves whilst giving birth just because they never noticed. When in reality like 95% of women do, just nobody tells you about it. A nurse wipes it away immediately, nobody turns round and go "By the way, you just pooped yourself, but we're used to it, it's cool!". Most women don't even realise they've done it, but chances are, if you've given birth naturally, you've shit in front of someone.

I started gagging when I read the FML and reading these comments is making me gag harder. Childbirth is one of those things that is both beautiful and disgusting at the same time.

It's worse witnessing it; it's not only thought but the sight and smell. There's a reason why they say you'll never forget it.

And of course the moment you see your baby! I'm not surprised some people pass out.

I would rather have amputated parts to dispose of, rather then after birth. I don't know why it's just the smell and awkwardness of labor and delivery.... Oh and on the rare occasion that the mom asks for the placenta to eat it.
