And yes, you read that correctly. The world was able to view the birth of his baby boy on Facebook.

Let's try pushing baby out

TMI or perfect for expectant moms?

As much as you might turn your head sideways at the thought of a woman giving birth on such a social platform, admit it, you can't turn away from the sight. (After all, it's not every day that you see a mom in labor pushing out a kid.)

I'll be honest, when I first heard about this, I thought to myself, Who in the world would want to see my vagine on Facebook? Why would I put this on Facebook, especially without using a privacy filter -- so at least only people I know would view it?

Then I thought back to two years ago. I was an expectant mother, and had no clue what to expect once "D-Day" arrived. Would it hurt? (Well, of course it would, but you know what I mean.) Would the baby's head get stuck? Would I have the physical strength to do it? This prompted me to spend countless nights YouTubing natural childbirth videos. Aside from finding entertainment during periods of insomnia, I was curious, and wanted to see for myself what was in store.

Words aren't always enough to describe a moment in time that changes your life.

I probably would've been one of 72,000 people who watched this live birth. In many ways, it's a resource moms-to-be can use should they be curious or have questions. (It's like getting to be a fly on the wall in a delivery room, without tripping over the contraction monitor or getting in a nurse's way.)

Thanks for letting us be a part of your miracle.
