Pregnant woman ‘twitters’ through birth

"Epidural? Yes please," tweets Sara Morishige Williams


It’s no longer seen as over-the-top to scream from the rooftops when your baby arrives – these days, it’s the norm to announce the news in real-time; which is exactly what Sara Morishige Williams did via Twitter when in labour!


The wife of one of the co-founders of Twitter, Evan Williams, is certainly practicing what he preaches and decided to take her ‘followers’ through her experiences of labour, from when her waters broke to having an epidural.

“Dear Twitter, My water broke. It wasn’t like Charlotte in Sex and the City,” she announced via her Apple iPhone, referring to the character’s water breaking in the middle of the street whilst confronting her best friend’s boyfriend who stood her up at the altar.

She later followed up her journey through labour with, “Epidural, yes please.”
