Grown Men Cry in Labor!

Sarah McMoyler, RN posted:
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?
