Let's face it: There's no dignity in childbirth. You may go into the delivery room with strongly held beliefs about what's proper, but every woman comes out of there knowing she probably would have bared it all in the middle of Times Square if it meant making the pain go away. And lest you feel embarrassed about what went down in the maternity ward, know this: Even Kim Kardashian fessed up to SheKnows that she isn't immune to the indignities of being a brand new mom.

It turns out Kardashian wore diapers... for several weeks after giving birth, no less.

Now, don't even try to pretend you don't know which diapers we're talking about. Those mesh panties doled out on the delivery floor like lollipops at the pediatrician's office are a magical secret of maternity. They're huge (think Granny panties) and breathable, and they hold the kind of giant maxi pads you haven't worn since the eighth grade in place to catch the horror that is the post-partum gush.

And Kim Kardashian, mother of two, face of a media empire, woman who does "glamorous" for a living... she gave in and wore the damn diapers because... motherhood.
