Childbirth is by far one of the most painful and yet rewarding experiences a woman will go through. No matter how much she may try and explain the pain of labour to her partner, he will never fully understand the torture she is experiencing. That is until now!
Women have spent centuries birthing babies and now a hospital has decided that men need to fully understand what women go through during labour. At the Aima maternity hospital in eastern China, expectant fathers can now enroll in the ‘Pain Experience Camp’ for a chance to feel the real pain of childbirth.
What a fantastic concept! Men can now strap themselves to some gadgets and feel the sheer force of labour pains- all while their girlfriends and wives sit back and laugh!
The experience came in response to ‘expectant mothers complaining about a lack of empathy from their partners’.
Over 300 men have already signed up (or been forced to) since November. I say lets bring this fantastic experience to all men world wide! What do you think? Would your partner cope with labour pains?
