One mom recently shared her labor story, telling everyone she managed to give birth within twenty-seven seconds and with one single push. But this unique story has got people sharing their own experiences with labor...
Now, welcoming a child into the world is an amazing experience.
The labor isn't so magical, however...
The labor of childbirth is known for being one of the most painful things that the human body can experience.
It is the very thing most women dread.
A combination of intense muscle tightening, abdomen cramps, pain in the torso and pelvic area, back pain, contractions from the uterus, and, eventually, pushing a baby out... It's certainly no walk in the park.
Labor is different for every woman.
Despite the fact that labor is pretty much guaranteed to be painful, it varies slightly for every woman; no labor is the same.
This can depend on the woman's genetics...
As well as her tolerance to pain, her body type, and her health.
But it can also depend on the size of the baby...
This is an important factor when it comes to giving birth naturally, because sometimes, it's physically impossible...
And it can also lead to being in labor for hours upon hours.
Imagine the pain!
On average, women spend approximately 8 hours in labor, but if this is the person's first child, it can take up to eighteen.
However, some join an elite group filled with lucky people that have managed to reduce their times to just minutes...
Sometimes even seconds.
Say hello to Sophie Bugg, a twenty-nine-year-old woman from the United Kingdom who gave birth in literally twenty-seven seconds and with one single push.
Speaking to DailyMail, she told them about her experience:
"She [her third child] was ridiculously fast! One moment I'm texting my friend on the toilet and seconds later, I've got a baby in my arms. Actually pushing her out from when the lady on the phone told me to push only lasted twenty-seven seconds, it was so fast."
"I had no pains and my waters hadn't broken," she continued. "There was no realization I was having her at all."
"It sounds really crude but it just felt like I needed to go for a poo.
"I had messaged my friend saying I don't feel great, then put the phone down from where I was sat on the loo and went to get up from the toilet."
If only it was easy as this for everyone else...
"As I went to lift myself up, my body just got that feeling like I needed to push for a poo. So I sat back down, pushed, and as soon as I did that push, I knew it was not from behind! I put my hand between my legs and her head was completely out. I shouted to my partner for help, went from the toilet to outside my toilet door on the top of the stairs, did one push and she was out!"
And Sophie is extremely lucky as this was her third easy labor.
Back in 2013, when she was ready to have her first child, Paige, she went to the toilet in the middle of the night and ended up giving birth right there and then.
And just a few years later, when she had her second child, Lexie, she gave birth within twenty-six minutes of being induced at the hospital.
And now, her third, Millie, arrived within mere seconds. Wow.
Upon hearing her story, many shared their own thoughts and experiences with painful labor...
Thankfully both the mom and the baby are doing well after the unexpected arrival!
