Welcoming a new life into the world is a pretty exciting and amazing thing.

So one could be forgiven for wanting to snap a pic and share the moment with friends and family as soon as possible.

But the latest post-birth pic going viral online is teaching us a very valuable lesson: always, always check to make sure you haven’t captured something NSFW in the background.

The image, shared on Reddit and on numerous Facebook pages, shows a nurse proudly holding a newborn baby, wrapped in a green towel.

It’s very, very cute… until you notice what’s going on in the background.

Poor mum, who’s just endured hours of pain in labour before pushing a watermelon-sized human out of her privates, has accidentally been photographed with everything on full display.

While there's nothing a) gross or b) unnatural about a woman's vagina - especially in the moments after it's just done the most wonderful thing a female body can do - we're not sure this new mum wanted to show off quite so much of the experience to the public.

On one Facebook page that shared the image, with the caption, "Some people are in such a hurry to put the picture of baby on Facebook. They just forget some things before posting", mums were sharing similar tales of their own accidentally NSFW post-birth images.

LISTEN: Birth photographer Angela Gallo on what women ask for with regards to birth photos.

"This happened to me with my son!" one mother wrote.

"My mum did the picture of my son on the weighing table thingy all focused on him not realising and put it on Facebook without realising.. yep I was in the photo (sic)."

"(My mum) got camera happy in the delivery room beautiful newborn baby and completely forgetting my gina [was] out... thankfully it didn't make [to Facebook]," another shared.

Other expecting mums said the image inspired them to make a new rule.

"Ok no photos in the birthing suit!" wrote one.

"For future reference no photos to be taken anywhere in the delivery room that is below the belt," said another.
