This Is Ess posted a picture on her instagram page captioning:
“On May 08, 2017, in the wee hours of the morning, I gave birth to my daughter, Aria Nailantei Leteipan. It was difficult and exhausting but beautiful too. In today’s video, I share my labour and delivery story.”
Many expectant and first time moms go through a phase of fear and uncertainty especially with the impending birth process. Well, this is something Sharon was also confronted with.
“My story starts off with me always being scared about giving birth. The whole idea about it was just terrifying like, a being coming out of your vagina. It doesn’t make any sense to me. I still feel like there are easier ways for our body to just eject this thing. So, right from the onset I just knew I would choose the least painful option which from what I heard and read was an epidural. I talked about it with my obstetrician and basically it turns out that was not the option. The hospital I wanted to give birth at was like we don’t know about epidural and that’s the point I decided to suck it up and go for Lamaze classes where they give breathing classes so I could prepare myself for what is about to happen. Slowly I started to come to terms with my reality.” She said.
Some of the things that one should look out for when you are going into labour according to This Is Ess:
At first, they are supposed to come in every twenty minutes and last fifteen seconds and after a while they progress to every five minutes and last like forty five seconds and eventually they are like every two three minutes and the contraction will last a minute.

It comes out on your underwear and should be pinkish or redish. It could happen like two weeks before you are due to deliver or hours before and so she decided to go the bathroom to check if she was into labour.
Sharon went further to narrate how she went to the hospital when she was in labour.
