Labour pains for men!

I've just watched, and re-watched, this very amusing video.

I think it would be great if all fathers could experience that, y'know, just to make it fair. But, I can't decide if they should do it before or after the mothers go into labor.

If they go first, they'll know exactly what the mothers are going through but they might also scare the mothers into c-sections. And if they go after, then they won't be able to empathize to the full extent during actual labour. Or maybe, they the mother should be able to activate a contraction on the father whenever he doesn't pull his weight in terms of parenting!

My wife had two c-sections. I on the other hand have had lower back spasms that had me on the floor unable to make the slightest move without excruciating pain.

Mike - Ouch! That sounds painful indeed. OK, you can be let off the hook for trying out child birth pains.

I've always been glad I worked in the design department, rather than in production.

LOL! I've never heard it that way before.
