London, Sep 21 (ANI): A pregnant British mother could not stop herself from tweeting while undergoing natural childbirth.

Fi StarStone, who runs a child-care advice website, posted constant updates during the 13-hour labour.

Her decision to tweet about her labour was to "dispel some of the myths of childbirth, reports the Daily Mail.

After posting nine updates that were followed by hundreds of people online, she gave birth to a baby boy in a birthing pool at home.

Oscar John Michael Victor Stone, weighing 7 pounds and 9 ounces, was born following a labor during which his mom used no pain relief.

When she went into labour, she posted, "Here we go lovelies! Contractions started at 2:30am! Baby decided he wants to come to his sister's 1st birthday party on Saturday!"

Her final tweet before the birth was, Still going my lovelies. Still no pain relief."

And just 20 minutes after the birth of her son, the mom posted another update: "Introducing Oscar John Michael Victor Stone. Thanks so much for all your support. I'm shattered and sore but the happiest mummy on the planet."

"I did it this way to show them the positive side of childbirth and to show it could be done without pain relief and while tweeting the whole time," she added. (ANI)
