“‘They treated me with such kindness and dignity.” Jill Krause said. “‘I’ll never forget the faces of the nurses who followed me into the bathroom after delivering each baby. That moment when I was so vulnerable, so tired, scared, shaky. My swollen belly deflating, and my modesty long was gone.” she added.
“For me, these have been moments of empowerment and confirmation that I have a real village to help me, even if just for that little bit of time in a bathroom, on a toilet, while a kind nurse shows me how to put an ice pad on my mesh undies,’ adding that the photo took her right back to when she was in the delivery room herself, saying she could even ‘smell the Dermaplast”, she wrote. “Let’s hear it for the nurses and the doulas and anyone else who shows us how to make ice pad underwear (or helps with that first shower post c-section!)”, Jill concluded.

Some women said that they are more grateful for the nurses and workers who attended them, giving them aide by soaping and rinsing them. The photo has 50,000 shares.
One woman commented,”My delivery nurse grabbed my cellphone without me asking and snapped pictures of my boyfriend and I when they first put the baby on my chest. It was honestly one of the sweetest things anyone could’ve done for me that day. I’ll always be thankful for that.”
Another commented,”‘I was so exhausted and in so much pain after a long labor and c-section that once I got to the shower, I just stood there frozen in pain. My sweet nurse lovingly soaped me up and rinsed me off. It was a very humbling experience. I’ll never forget her.”
One nurse said, “If it bothered me then I got into the wrong profession. I was always like hunny you just had a human exit your body, please let me help you.”
Katie Larcer, from Kentucky, documents births, going on-call when her clients reach the 38-weeks pregnancy, carrying cameras and ready to capture the moment.
