I'm not kidding. About half of these pictures made me fight the urge to vomit. Proceed with caution.
Pregnancy and childbirth may be "beautiful," but not literally so. Aesthetically speaking, it's all pretty ugly, involving a lot of goo and gore and poop. Of course, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and sometimes the beholder is a crunchy doula or a narcissistic new mother who actually looks at a placenta and doesn't see a disembodied, dying human organ, but rather, crafting materials for a sentimental DIY project. In this day and age when everything is considered worthy of documentation, it shouldn't be surprising that "birth art"—in which people are getting creative with the science of labor and delivery—is now a thing.
