A woman feels a lot of physical pain and intense emotions during labor. Women in labor are usually encouraged to relax, meditate and perform several exercises that will make the delivery of the baby easier. However, some women prefer to do crazy stuff instead of focusing on their childbirth.
Here are some of the craziest things women have done while experiencing labor.
Many students take a day off from school if they have mild health conditions such as fever, cold, cough or allergy. Tommitrise Collins from Macon, Georgia is the rare kind of student who will take her university exam even if she is already about to give birth.
During her labor, the student from the Middle Georgia State University finished her exam within two hours. Amazingly, the determined student passed the exam with a B!
“This is what you call ‘Strong Priorities.' Contractions three minutes apart and (she) still takes her psychology test,” Collins’ sister wrote on Facebook.
Many women who have been assigned as a bridesmaid in a wedding take their responsibilities seriously. One of the most dedicated bridesmaids to have ever walked the Earth is Lucy – a 29-year-old woman who walked down the aisle with her sister while she was having contractions.
She kept her pain and emotions all to herself but was immediately taken to the hospital after taking her pictures outside the church.
Amber Miller was already 39 weeks pregnant when she joined a 26.2-mile marathon in Chicago. During the final stages of the grueling race, Miller started to feel painful contractions.
Instead of racing to the hospital, the mother-to-be decided to race towards the finish line. She completed the marathon in 6 hours and 25 minutes and gave birth to her baby just a few hours later.
How do you know if you are really passionate about something? You’ll know it if you continue to do it with enthusiasm despite pain and suffering.
That is how Lisa Robinson feels about being a professional photographer. She was able to document her labor and delivery experience by taking pictures throughout the process.
As a professional makeup artist, Alaha Majid appreciates the transformative power of makeup. During her labor, Alaha decided to take her mind off the pain by giving herself a glamorous makeup. As a result, her pictures after childbirth make her look like she has just been to a glamorous party instead of a brutal delivery of her baby.
As the police apprehended a group of two men and two women for stealing a pickup truck and crashing other vehicles with it, the officers realized that one of the women was going into labor. She was rushed to the hospital to give birth while her friends were taken to the police station.
One of the last things you would expect a woman in labor would do is to dance to the tune of a hip hop song. That is exactly what this young mom did with her two friends as she danced to "Watch Me (Whip Nae Nae)" by Silentó in between contractions. The midwife revealed that the young mom was 6cm dilated while dancing.
