Giving birth is often described as one of the most beautiful moments of a person's life. While this is definitely true (getting to meet your baby who has been living inside of you is kind of a big deal), there are aspects of labor and delivery that most wouldn't describe as beautiful but rather as awkward, gross and borderline mortifying.

Buzzfeed's latest video, appropriately titled "Things No One Tells You About Giving Birth," perfectly captures some of the less talked about moments that go down during the birthing process, and we've got to say — they nailed it.

"Poop is just part of the process," the doctor tells the soon-to-be mother as she's asking her to push like she's got to poop. "But I don't want to poop!" the mother reluctantly responds. Well, no one ever gets out of bed and looks forward to pooping in front of a room full of people, but like the video says, pooping during labor is just part of the process — the beautiful, amazing and gross process of bringing babies into the world.
