Poll: Is Liveblogging A Home Birth Intriguing Or Appalling?

this-or-that-liveblogging-home-birth

Just when you thought your friends were oversharing on Facebook and Twitter, someone else comes along and puts them to shame in the TMI department.

Exhibit A: New mom, Ruth Iorio.

In case you haven’t heard, Ruth decided to liveblog her home birth, giving her followers (and the world) a play-by-play of her birthing experience.  As totally grossed out as I am by the Facebook photos of Ruth’s bloody bathtub and details about how her “asshole aches,” I find myself intrigued, and unable to look away … kind of like a bad car accident that you can’t stop staring at. Meanwhile, Amelia thinks it’s all awesome and educational and, yeah, sure, a bit scary.

But I want to know what YOU think: is liveblogging a home birth on social media intriguing or appalling?

Vote in our poll below and then from 4:30-5:00 p.m. ET, @TheFrisky will be discussing the question and poll results on Twitter. Be sure to join in on the convo and use the hashtag #ThisOrThat. See you then!
