'Oh my god, my water's breaking,' she said at the start of the video, before adding: 'Thank God I'm wearing one of these diapers.' 

While the Pretty Little Liars star had planned on waiting out her labor before heading to the hospital, she revealed the pain was too strong and made her way there with her long-term boyfriend, Matte Babel.

On the way to the hospital, Shay confessed she was worried as she hadn't felt her daughter in a while and the last time she had felt that sort of pain 'was not a good experience' - hinting at the 2018 miscarriage. 

Just the beginning: The actress was quickly hooked up to the ultrasound machine by her obstetrician who found the baby's heartbeat. However, despite the pain, it would be many hours until Shay was to give birth

'It freaks me out, it really does. Cause this last time I felt pain like this was not a good experience.' 

While being driven, Shay messaged her doula, Andrey, who met the couple there.

However, despite the pain, it would be many hours until Shay was to give birth.  

13 hours in an no sign of her daughter, the doctor ordered Pitocin - a drug that intensifies contractions but can help push labor along. 

'Pitocin is used to make a labor move faster,' doula Andrey explained while sharing the downsides of the drug.  

'The physical experience with the labor is completely different because the Pitocin labor is pretty rough.'

Deep-sleep: Matte sure listened to their doula Andry, with the father-to-be sleeping through Shay's intense contractions 17 hours in - something which she said 'she was going to kill him' about

With the contractions really kicking in, Andrey coached Shay to try and relax as it was only going to get worse.

'I want you to be right here, right now, where your contractions are manageable. You're going to try get some rest and just breathe.' 

She added: 'So you know these are going to be much more intense. That's why I just said to Matte, "Matte, you should probably get some sleep because when this Pitocin kicks in s***t's going to get real in here."' 

And Matte sure listened to Andry, with the father-to-be sleeping through Shay's intense contractions 17 hours in - something which she said 'she was going to kill him' about.

And despite the Petocin, it didn't look like the baby would be coming anytime soon. 

'Shay is having a really hard time, she's struggling. I think she might feel a little helpless in some ways. She's crying a little bit, she's considering the epidural.'

On an earlier episode of her series, Almost Ready, Shay and Matte had had a disagreement about the use of an epidural. 

'You say no epidural, I say epidural,' Shay told Matte. 

'Am I partial to no epidural? Yes. Why? Because I'm a hypochondriac,' Matte explained. 'I'm afraid of drugs. My mom didn't use an epidural. I meet women all the time who didn't choose to use an epidural.'  

Shay then posed the analogy: 'Would you get a root canal without any drugs?'

Matte did not think that was a fair comparison, arguing her body was 'genetically engineered' to give birth. 

The Canadian host didn't appear to have an issue with the epidural this time round at 23 hours in, wearing a 'No Ovaries, No Opinion' T-shirt. 

Encouragement: While the video didn't show the actual birth, a voice over of the delivery was heard with Andrey, Matte and the doctors encouraging her

Seven hours later at 30 hours, the doula was worried about increased infection. 

'Shay's waters haven't broken for 30 hours now, which increases the risk of infection,' she explained to camera. 

'We're really trying to avoid a caesarean and doing everything that we can to help the labor to progress, and she's been quite the trooper, she has not complained during any parts of this.' 

While the video didn't show the actual birth, a voice over of the delivery was heard with Andrey, Matte and the doctors encouraging her. 

And it wasn't just the baby crying when she arrived, Shay burst into tears too. 

33 hours later! The video ended on a lighter note with Shay enjoying a large icy drink, 'I was 99% excited to meet her, and 1% excited to eat something'

'I can't. Oh it's so crazy. Oh God. Oh it's so crazy.' 

She continued in a voiceover: 'This is definitely the most intense experience of my life. Matte and I are parents. I can't believe it - and we thought being pregnant was a journey, and I'm realizing we have just begun.' 

The video ended on a lighter note with Shay enjoying a large icy drink, 'I was 99% excited to meet her, and 1% excited to eat something.' 

Shay was then seen toasting a glass of champagne with Matte.
