I was on YouTube today when I came across a video that I had to share with all of you moms out there! Make sure you pull your husband/boyfriend/significant other into the room to watch it with you…it may just give him a new found respect for what we went through delivering our bundles of joy!

Australian TV Host Dr. Andrew Rochford set out to see who has the higher threshold for pain; men or women. So how did he do this? Dr. Rochford had himself (willingly I might add) hooked up to a machine that causes muscle spasms much like the ones women experience during child birth, so essentially he went through (to a certain point anyway) simulated childbirth! The result? Well I’ll let you see for yourself!

So what do you think? Do you think that by experiencing simulated childbirth (up to the point where we could get an epidural) that he knows what its like to be in labor? Do you think all men should have to this when their significant other becomes pregnant? Come on y’all I want to know!


  1. AWESOME!!!

  2. I haven't had a chance to show it to my fiance yet but he is definitely going to watch it!

  3. Wow...
