A woman wanted to share her experiences of childbirth in all its graphic glory. Too much?

A woman has live tweeted through giving birth, sharing intimate photos and details through every step.

The overwhelming verdict? It f***ing hurts.

We knew it.

Ruth Iorio, a blogger from Los Angeles decided last minute to share her experience of a home birth, "whether attractive or not and just to be honest about it."



The new mum had a natural birth (like a crazy hero), avoiding drugs but enjoying a whisky sour in the bath. She ended up in hospital needing a blood transfusion.



She also tweeted about diarrhoea, blood, placentas and reinforced the main point - that it's as painful as trying to pass a melon through your nostril.


Despite our legs now being permanently crossed - it was refreshing and honest (and gross. Did we mention gross?)



Twitter was, rather unsurprisingly, divided by the whole thing.

Some say it was attention seeking, many praised the social diary for demystifying birth and some commented on the state of her bathroom tiles (really? Guys there's a picture of her placenta further down here - mildew is not the scariest thing you'll see today).


Too graphic or good for women? You must have some thoughts on this. Tweet us @handbagcom

Oh, and one last thing - here's that placenta pic we warned you about (sorry - but seriously, look at that thing)....
