Woman receives backlash after taking selfie while her sister is giving birth

Selfies are everywhere these days, but turns out they're happening in places we wouldn't even think of!

Kat Armendariz has gone viral (and received some criticism) online for taking a selfie with her sister mid way through her labour!

Speaking to Mashable, Kat said "she wasn't in too much pain at first, so she thought it was pretty funny. I told her I was going to do it, she just started the oxytocin and the labour pains began almost instantly. She started to feel it and right when she was like, 'Oh my god I can't take this,' I took the photo."

The response has been mixed, with many people calling the pic hilarious and a sign of 'sisterly love' others have deemed the photo 'cruel' and 'unkind'.

The photo has been viewed over 500,000 times!
