Men Go Through Simulated Labor


My thoughts as I watched this:

Only 2 hours? My hard labor was seven hours.

I couldn't scream like that because tensing up made the pain SO much worse. I had to just breathe through it. Having my midwife tell me how much longer it was going to be helped.

They are only getting abdominal pain; I had back labor and felt like my back was breaking in addition to the pain from the abdomen.

Glad they got some appreciation of what women go through--one man said he didn't want to ask his wife to go through this again.
