Woman lovingly snaps a selfie as her sister discovers the excruciating pain of childbirth

If you don’t post a pic of your sister giving birth did it even really happen?

Fun aunt Kat Armendariz posted a selfie on July 2nd that gained a lot of attention for its unusual location. Armendariz captured the photo just as her sister Kimberly was about to give birth.

Off to the side you can see her in the throes of labor while Kat, who is a mother of five herself, has a sweet look that seems to say “Thank goodness it isn’t me this time.”

Kat received some criticism in the comments from people who found the selfie to be insensitive to her sister’s pain, but she assures the haters that Kimberly thought the moment was funny.

Kat told Mashable, “She wasn’t in too much pain at first, so she thought it was pretty funny. I told her I was going to do it, she just started the oxytocin and the labor pains began almost instantly. She started to feel it and right when she was like, ‘Oh my god I can’t take this,’ I took the photo.”

Leave it to a sister to capture that exact moment and now they have the perfect souvenir to remember this painful but joyous occasion.
