Last week, Francie shared a photo of her birth in a closed group on Facebook “NYC Birth” (“The Births of New York”) - in honor of her daughter's first birthday. The picture captures herself Francy with the baby just a moment after giving birth in her own bed - with a small amount of blood, naked parts of the body and a lot of emotions.
“The night before, I told my friend that I was sure that something unpredictable would happen on her birthday because it always happens in my life,” says Francie, doula, teacher and consultant to young mothers. - And of course, my husband woke up very sick and spent the whole day in bed. He missed the birthday of our daughter, and I spent the evening remembering the birth and reading the positive comments of other moms in the group on Facebook a year ago. ”
A little later, Francie received a message from a friend saying that FB blocked her and her photo was deleted. "My first reaction was:" Are you kidding me? Photo lay in several groups already year,and I received only positive feedback. "
So that you understand, in the original photo was without these black squares
When Francie tried to go to FB, in a message from the administration she wrote that her photo violated the requirements for nude photos, and that the rest of her pictures would now be checked. And it's true that it is no secret that the social network is prohibited by a photo in which the genitals are clearly visible, completely naked buttocks and a female breast (if nipples are visible). In this photo allowed breastfeeding.
Unique photos of the birth of a child
“If someone decided to complain about it, then this did not hurt my feelings. This is still my story, and I am proud of her. I hope that Facebook will change its policy by allowing women to share their birth stories, because it can inspire other women. Childbirth is an important event in the life of the family, the child and the woman, and you need to honor this amazing process, no matter how it looks. ”
