A TikTok user has gone viral for her stunning birth experience.
Bethany Collins, 23, told her followers she pushed so hard during labor that one of her eyes actually “popped out” – but said it had returned to normal six weeks later.
In a photo she shared of herself at the hospital, her left eye can be seen bulging out of her head.
“My doctor said, ‘Wow, I’ve never experienced that before,’ but now I have Miss Phoebe,” the new mom said titled her post.
During the stress of childbirth, women can get bloodshot eyes, according to the BabyCenter website.
“Squeezing and straining increases your blood pressure, which can lead to broken capillaries and red eyes. But don’t worry — bloodshot eyes are generally harmless and go away within two weeks,” according to the outlet.
But despite her more extreme eye episode, Collins suffered no long-term effects.
Meanwhile, other moms shared their own experiences.
“OMG! My eyes are bleeding from pushing so hard. I looked so scary,” one wrote.
“That’s why I closed my eyes,” said another.
A third added: “Reasons not to get pregnant.”
