It’s not unusual to see a photo on Facebook or Twitter of an exhausted new mommy holding her little bundle of joy.

Her tired, yet content face only tells a fraction of the story of what she endured for hours before that point.

But friends and followers of Ruth Iorio got front row social media seats to her at-home, natural birth.

She told The Huffington Post she wanted to share her unique experience in an honest way.

And that she did.

Posts from Dec. 25 and Dec. 26 show and describe her twelve-hour birth with all of its emergencies and challenges.

The detailed account has added to the conversation about the line dividing personal and private experiences and their place on the Internet.

    Can we so loco? how stupid can we get? Maybe sharing with her family members not for everyone to see! Now she will never get that babies face off the internet…or she will never be able to go anywhere without being recognized over by this situation “oh isn’t that lady that posted everything on the social media site” I think she took this a little to far, how about you?

    I don’t know why people post there new baby all over the internet, I see tons of people doing it, I don’t do it I have a free Shutterfly account. It’s called Share Site where you post tones of pictures and videos and family members and friends can comment or what not, to me this is the safest way.
