(UNDATED)- Is this considered oversharing on social media, or a beautiful real-life description of the miracle of birth?

Ruth Iorio, a writer in Los Angeles, live tweeted and shared photos of her at-home childbirth.  She says her goal was to show her "unique experience, whether attractive or not, and just to be honest about it."

WARNING: You may find some of the tweets and photos graphic in nature. We've provided a link to more of Iorio's story on our Facebook page.
