I don't mean to terrify you or anything like that, but most moms will probably agree that labor is no picnic. Sure, there are a small number of women who compare giving birth with having a party, but for the majority of us -- labor and delivery seem more like a scene out of a horror movie.
There's a sense of fear. There's screaming and moaning. There's blood and all sorts of other bodily fluids. And you're surrounded by people who may or may not be wearing weird capes and/or masks.
No really, the similarities are kind of uncanny, when you think about it. Check out these photos to see six horror movies that are oddly a lot like delivering a baby.
