Baby related news – 2 men experiment with the pain of childbirth

4th February 2013

Men giving birth…

2 very courageous Dutch male TV hosts wanted to find out what it felt like to give birth. They simulated child birth for a 2 hour period and the video below tells the tale…

The midwife helps them through the entire experience and even provides one of the subjects with gas to help him cope with the pain however he quits the experiment half way through leaving his friend to finish the 2 hours experiment alone.

Over 300,000 babies were born in Australia in the last 12 months; most births would last a lot longer than 2 hours so how do we cope??

Over 1 Million people watched the video which indicates to me that we are certainly curious about how men would cope with child birth – it makes us wonder if they could!
