    Honestly? Absolutely! I think the vast vast majority of parents would endure absolutely whatever you they must to have their babies /children safe and well.
    I couldn't put a pin to my own finger and press down, I couldn't wax my own legs, I couldn't hurt myself needlessly, but I pushed my baby out hard enough to tear my vagina in 3. Enjoy that mental image.

    But without the dire need to birth a baby safely into this world I'm the biggest sook. I whined when I got my whooping cough Vax about 6 hours after her birth.

    So I don't think some artificial simulator does any justice to survival and protection instincts.

    No. Me and dp had this discussion the other night. He claimed that as he had cut off the tip of his finger once he knew what labour was like. I was like umm was one of your pain relief options a needle in your spine to block feeling to your arm....no? Then the doctors obviously didn't think so .

    And I cried, screamed, begged and bargained until it got serious then I just stfu and birthed my baby.

    So yeah. I think anyone would just do whatever they must.

    Up to an including csection, which is how jas was born, I was so scared I begged for a general anaesthetic but I still let them cut me even though it scared me so much because I'd die to get my baby out. What's a bit of fear.

    Lol, I saw this. It was great! The funny thing is that yes they felt simulated contractions but that still doesnt take into account the whole 'ring of fire' thing. I reckon all men should give this a go!

    My DP is the most accident prone guy on the planet!! Seering some of the things he has gone through - well i have no doubt in my mind he would handle it.

    Saying that tho - i was pretty blown away when after him witnessing me giving birth ( a few weeks after, i think he was really affected by it) he made a comment that he could not believe what i had gone through and that i went home the next day and never mentioned it. He got a massive tick in my books for that one and i think for the first time ever had me speechless!!

    I agree with boobycino, if they had to they would. I'm another one who is a bit of a sook for physical pain, I really didnt want the drip coz the cannula hurts (never mind the contractions!), I winced when they gave me my anti-d injection after giving birth etc. but I love giving birth lol!

    i watch men play footy and there's no way I'd be jumping up to mark a ball and land straight on my back or ar$e! Or getting grass burns, ouch!

    A man could handle labour as well as the rest of us if he had a vagina.
