This Is What Labor Feels Like For Men

They say that giving birth is one of the most painful things a person can experience, which means the men of the world really lucked out. While women suffer through the excruciating process of labor and childbirth, men just get to sit on the sideline and provide support – how is that fair? Since both parents contribute to raising the child, it would only make sense for both of them to feel the pain and discomfort that comes along with it.

Well, one couple decided to do just that … sort of. The Holderness Family is known for their wacky musical parodies like “Xmas Jammies” and “Baby Got Class,” but last Mother’s Day they celebrated by doing something that required a little more “labor.” Kim, the mom of the Holderness clan, brought her husband to a hospital so that he could experience simulated labor pains. Along with the help of a real doctor, Penn, the dad, hops up on the table, spreads his legs, and gets hooked up to a machine that makes him feel like he’s about to give birth.

This “gift” is certainly more endearing than breakfast in bed, but, based on the look on Penn’s face, I doubt any fathers out there will be rushing to give it a try. This Mother’s Day, remember that you don’t have to subject yourself to horrible pain in order to show your wife, mother, or grandmother just how much you appreciate her. Instead, watch this video together and laugh the whole way through!
