Shay Mitchell Chronicled Her Labor and Delivery Experience in an Emotional 12-Minute Video

Shay Mitchell gave birth to her first baby, and she chronicled her entire labor and delivery process for fans to see with a new video in her Almost Ready YouTube series. After sharing the exciting news on Sunday with a first photo of her baby girl, Shay dropped her newest video on Monday, and if you enjoy emotional, intimate looks into other people's lives, it's definitely for you. Shay takes viewers all the way from the moment her water broke at home to the moment she heard her baby's first cries (with all the superprivate delivery parts blacked out, of course), and it's a tear-jerking journey.

The 32-year-old actress was in labor for more than 33 hours, and she got Pitocin to help speed up the process. It was really painful at times, and a sleep-deprived Shay also got the shakes, which is common during delivery.

Shay had the support of her boyfriend, Matte Babel; her parents; and her doula as she powered through the whole thing. Shay has yet to share a name or more photos of her newborn, but watch the 12-minute video above in the meantime.
