It’s one of the most beautiful natural processes in the world. Or sometimes it’s hell on earth. These horrific labor stories might make you second-guess whether that cute little baby is worth the turmoil in the delivery room. From delivering a baby in a sinking car to almost losing them on the railroad tracks, these are some of the worst stories about childbirth.

Either way, call your mom and say thank you – and maybe send some flowers.
