7 Labor & Delivery Overshares We Wish Parents Had Kept to Themselves

momRecently Orange Is the New Black actor Jason Biggs has gotten a lot of flack for his social media overshare during his wife's labor and delivery. He chronicled the experience from the moment the contractions ramped up in the car on the way to the hospital to her getting an epidural and in the OR during the surprise C-section. There is no question that it was a special day for his family, but it begs the question: How much is too much information?

He's certainly not the only parent guilty of this. People boldly post everything from details of their painful episiotomies to photographs of their placenta. It's a disturbing epidemic if you ask me. We are so desperate for attention that we think nothing of sharing the most intimate (and sometimes most cringeworthy) moments of our birth stories. Check out 7 of the yuckiest labor and delivery overshares we've come across.

WARNING, some of these tweets are graphic.


1. These gross tidbits come as no surprise to anyone who's has a baby. Still, do we really need to read them?

2. Huh? Not so much gross as it is off-putting. What an odd sentence to use when celebrating parenthood.

3. Does the entire world really need to have such a detailed description of your boobs?

4. Yuck. Just yuck.

5. Retching now.

6. The very definition of TMI.

7. Why, why, why?
