Woman's selfie of sister giving birth shows painful reality of childbirth

Kat Armendariz

There are strict aunts, cool aunts, and then there’s the kind of aunt who takes a seflie with her sister in the background in the throes of labour. We're not sure what kind of aunt she's likely to become, but we're willing to bet it'll be the fun kind.

Kat Armendariz took a photo that truly seemed to reveal just how painful childbirth can be... She wasn't having to experience it though.

The woman experiencing the pain was Kimberly, her sister, and she does not look happy.

Here’s the photo, captioned:

Selfie!!! While my sister is getting ready to shove a baby out her vag!

Armendariz told Mashable

She wasn’t in too much pain at first, so she thought it was pretty funny.

I told her I was going to do it, she just started the oxytocin and the labour pains began almost instantly.

She started to feel it and right when she was like, ‘Oh my god I can’t take this,’ I took the photo. 

There's one snap to put near the front of the baby book. Maybe re-caption it: "Thank god it's not me."
