An adorable photo of a new baby, taken moments after birth, has gone viral after viewers spotted something in the background.

The image, which was posted on the Bubs Warehouse International Facebook page, appeared to feature a nurse in scrubs holding a crying baby.

‘Some people are in such a hurry to put the picture of baby on Facebook. They just forget some things before posting,’ the snap was captioned.

It is what is going on in the background that attracted thousands of comments.

Don’t mind Mum, who is still lying on the bed in birth position, we assume she just gave birth to the newborn in the snap.

The situation certainly brought back memories for many women on social media – with some saying they had found themselves in a similar situation.

The photo has attracted 7000 likes, 4000 comments and almost 800 shares since it was posted online.

As one mum commented, I think it is a good idea to have final say in any Facebook images before posting!

Did anything similar happen to you?

  • Seems this will happen more an more often now we are in the world of social media.


  • Oh no poor mum


  • People shouldn’t share such a picture. The poor Mum, I feel so sorry for her.


  • Oh no, The family should have been appreciating these moments rather than jump to share them. But each to their own, because we have become quite attached to instantaneous data sharing.


  • Oh, I remember this pic. Stunning that they didn’t realize what they were posting!! :-)


  • Oh my! the mother must have been mortified!!


  • Oops! How embarrassing for this new mum.


  • The poor Mother just what you don’t need after giving birth.


  • There were no cameras in the delivery room. It was me that took the first pics after birth.


  • Did the mum give permission for the photo to be posted on Facebook


  • OH dear that would be horrendous.


  • Oh god, mortifying!!


  • Omg who posted it? I know I told everyone to not post anything until I did it first. I also carefully selected the photos, none which were in the birthing suite


  • Very embarrassing once noticed. Thank heavens there was no Facebook when my kids were born.


  • Talk about being caught with your pants down and over exposed.
