What’s the most natural thing to do when you’re celebrating the completion of your novel? Do a fake “birth” shoot, of course!

Erin Chack, Senior Writer at BuzzFeed, tweeted photos of herself pretending to give birth to her new book, an essay collection called This Is Really Happening.

According to Chack, she came up with the idea for the hilarious shoot with her best friend Alijah.

They set up a makeshift “hospital” using a futon, a comforter pinned to the wall, and flowers on an end-table, much like you’d see next to a hospital bed.

Chack says there’s nothing quite like seeing a creation like a book (or, you know, a baby) become reality.
