"Well, I guess I'll just lay here, wide open, for everyone to see."
Directly after labor, it's not like you get your baby, get dressed and go home. Instead, you are usually subjected to lay there, wide open, stirrups and all, waiting for the afterbirth or just to get checked out
and make sure everything is still in place.
The same goes for if you've had a c-section and don't even get me started if you had a perineal tear -- talk about your lady parts saying hello to the world! The good thing is that you at least have a cute baby to distract you from the feeling of being so on display.
