Hastings has been left furious after she realised that a candid photo she had taken of a mum giving birth while standing up, and shared on Facebook had been pulled down by the site, with her page banned for 30 days.

The photographer who runs a site, 'Apple Blossom Families' dedicated to such clips had shared the photo for the same purposes, garnering praises from mothers and soon-to-be mums who had come across the photo.

Describing how she had woken up to the discovery, Hastings wrote:

"This image did not show ' full buttocks' and definitely did not contain 'sexual content'.

"The image that they removed showed a powerful woman catching her own baby standing up, there was a bit of the bottom of my clients bum, thighs, baby's head... and some blood.

"Get with the times Facebook, it's 2016, women are way more than sexual objects, we are amazing creatures that create life and we want to freely share it with each other so we can learn about birth in a healthy way."

Half the time, when posts get pulled down or pages banned on social mediums, it had to have been reported by a number of users which was likely the same in this case.
