12 Mothers Described Most Embarrassing Thing While Giving Birth

Sure, for some women, birth is beautiful and empowering. For others, it is intensely painful. Given the sweating and heavy breathing and bodily fluids and the way your body is very much on display, no one exactly describes it as glamorous. (Though, of course, it’s all worth it for that sweet – if only slightly alien-­looking – baby.)

Here, moms described their most embarrassing labor and Birth moments.

1. “I totally farted on my OB while she was sewing me up. So embarrassing!” –Rebecca, 32

2. “I was too shaky to make it to the bathroom after my daughter‘s birth but had to pee sooooo badly, so they brought me one of those old people commode chairs. My husband took a picture of me on it. He thinks it’s hilarious!” –Kara, 27

3. “I’m a bit of a shy Sally, but abody does whatever a body needs to do, and I found myself in my worst nightmare: on my elbows and knees (booty in the air), pants­less, AND vomiting.It felt good at the time and progressed the labor, but now I hate thinking of it. Oh, thethings we do for our kids.” –Grace, 29

4. “I was laboring for a long LONG time, so I had absolutely no control over anything.After days of hard contractions (and no bowel movements), I became keenly aware of the need to #2 … or so I thought. My midwife told me it was time to start pushing and Isaid, ‘But I HAVE to poop.’ She kept telling me the baby was coming, and I continued tosay it. When I started pushing, I yelled out SUPER loudly, ‘BUT I HAVE TOPOOOOOOOP!!!’ in a really long, strained sentence. I know everyone heard me, and itwas so embarrassing. I apologized profusely to everyone after my son was born.”­-Angelina, 21

5. “My husband’s fraternity brothers were all there as I was wheeled out of the operatingroom after my C-section. I was so delirious from the morphine that I whipped my boob out tonurse him right in front of the fraternity boys. My husband quickly suggested they all geta snack at the cafeteria while I finished feeding my son.” -­Rachel, 24

6. “I always assumed that when one’s water breaks, it is pretty much a one and donesituation, so I wasn’t concerned after my water broke at 7 a.m. Hours later at the hospital, my nurse was helping me get off the bed to go walk the halls and the effort ofhoisting my 41-week pregnant self caused a flood of water to release. In a big splash. On my nurse’s feet.” –Kamee, 27

7. “Getting my epidural while birthing my second baby, I randomly started sobbing forno reason and was so out of control the nurse had to run the mental capabilities test onme. ‘What is your name? What is today? Are you aware of what is happening?’ All while snot was running down my face.” –Jessica, 32

8. “While I was getting stitched up after my C-section with my first child, my mainnurse during labor and delivery walked over to me as I was still strapped in they sewed me back up and proceeded to tell me, ‘During theprocedure, some of your blood squirted into my eye, so we had to test your blood. Wejust got the labs back in, and good news! You don’t have any STDs or infectious diseases!’ Even though it wasn’t my fault, it still felt pretty embarrassing.” –Amanda, 30

9. “After pushing my son out, they placed him on my chest and my mother-­in-law burstin, because she heard crying. My legs were still in stirrups with my bloody, broken vaginaon display. I guess she couldn’t hold back her excitement, but I was so embarrassed.”­-Sylvie, 27

10. “I had a water birth and remember being terrified about the whole poop situation.My midwife told me it wasn’t a big deal and that I had other more important things tofocus on. I tried to take her advice, until mid­way through labor I saw her walk over, ever so discreetly, to the tub with a goldfish net in hand. She scooped up an errant floater out of the tub that I had been completely unaware of. I totally cried.” –Rose, 32

11. “I had been in labor for 30 hours (14 more to go) and had my epidural, so I wastotally numb. I had a fever, so they gave me Tylenol. I can’t remember why, but theydecided not to have me take it orally, but instead the poor nurse had to give it to me in the rectum.” –Nelly, 24

12. “This was an embarrassing moment that was narrowly avoided. My friends like to tease me for being a never-­nude. I’m super modest and refused to be naked during my home birth. At the very end of my labor, my contractions stalled. I had already pushed my son’s head out, but he was stuck, and I wasn’t having any more contractions. They needed to get him out quickly and recruited my husband to come over and do nipple stimulation to try to coax a contraction out of me. Apparently, I’m so modest that my body decided, ‘Hell no! That’s not happening in front of all these people,’ and my baby came out in a huge push moments later. Thank goodness!”­ –Laura, 31
