Friend had her first baby. It's a baby girl. Now relatives and friends want her to post photos from inside the hospital. I'm disgusted. You?

It's weird, intrusive, and all the other kinds of rude to try to pressure people into posting pictures of anything they're not comfortable with sharing publically.

I didn't have anywhere to go and I was actually in the hospital room when my siblings were born, and when I tell you it was like a slasher movie in there...

No, because that's normal. There's nothing wrong with that. You're making something out of nothing.

I don't get it, why is it disgusting? Like unless they want to see the afterbirth or something... Granted, newborn babies do look pretty disgusting, but you're supposed to overlook that becuase the creation of a new human is such a "beautiful" thing. 🤣

Leave her alone, people! She could take one and politely mention that she will be focusing on recovering and tending to the baby. If they don’t happen to hear from her in a bit it’s because of that. Hopefully they’ll take the hint.
