    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Grown Men Cry in Labor!

    The ladies of The View, morning talk show, featured a video clip of men experiencing the pain of childbirth via electrical stimulation; it's about time! With the peak of each contraction, the men writhed and screeched in pain; only one of the two "men in labor' was able to endure their TWO HOUR labor. Watch this intense overdue view of men experiencing labor pain: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RVUZzgswJaY

    This underscores how men have absolutely NO idea about the deep physical response the body has to uterine contractions OR the need for unconditional support as women endure the labor process.

    Male or female, what do you think?
