The Los Angeles writer told huffington post that she has purported in her mind to post her unique experience, whether attractive or not and just to be honest about it.
The result was a raw, VERY personal look at the miracle of life, starting with contractions around 8:15 p.m. on Christmas and updates that included how the pain was akin to a "shitty period" and how she had a lot of diarrhea.
Iorio used a midwife to help with the birth and sat with her dog in bed a few hours into the labor
She wrote a lot about her "nasty" back pain and also asked: Why does no one say your asshole aches like hell, too? We told you this was awfully personal.
Ruth said she was "in and out of sleep" for a few minutes here and there, as "this beast" ripped her "back apart." Good thing the midwife was around to assist
In the end, of course, it was all worth it, as Ruth gave birth to a son named Nye.
She has to be transported to a hospital and remain there for two days due to a loss of blood after her placenta failed to be delivered.
