How it felt to give birth

After going through Lamaze, Leboyer, and La Leche classes with his expectant wife, the proud new father remained by her bedside throughout the labour delivery and wanting to be as sympathetic as possible, he took his wife’s hand afterward and said emotionally. “Tell, me how it was, darling, how it actually felt to give birth.”

“OK, Honey,” his wife replied. “Smile as hard as you can.”

Beaming down at his wife and smile, the man followed her instructions. “That’s not hard.”

She continued, “Now stick a finger in each corner of you mouth.” He obeyed, smiling broadly. “Now stretch your lips as far as they’ll go,” she went on.

“Still not to tough.” he remarked.

“Right.” she snapped. “Now pull them over your head.”
