Women feel a lot of pressure to look good in all situations, but during childbirth couldn’t possibly be one of them, right?


Some women are getting themselves all dolled upΒ before giving birth, so they can look good in the photos with their newborn.

Yes, that hashtag above says #glamduringlabor. Okay…

Here are some more examples of this phenomenon.

. 3 days ago I got a phone call from my sis in law at 2am saying she had her first contraction. So I jumped on the next plane out of Adelaide to be by her side ASAP! I arrived at 12pm and her contractions had fully slowed down and she was a bit stressed so I said let me do your makeup. Half way through doing her makeup she was so relaxed that her contractions sped up to every few mins and we then had to race to the hospital – She was 7cm dilated! I think I’m onto something here… Getting your makeup done whilst in labour relaxes you, speeds up the process and you look good 🀣 Thank you @belinda.campbell.338 for inviting me to the labour, it was such an honour and was so beautiful watching my nephew come into this world πŸ™πŸΌπŸ’• #labour #contractions #birth #pregnant #pregnantbelly #labourmakeup

Hey, to each their own, but this just seems kind of weird to me…
