Happycrow goes to childbirth class

… and manages not to freak out at all!  Mostly.  One of the childbirth films got me kinda edgy, but that was because yours truly is a sucker who can be moved by a cheese commercial, so four ladies in a room shrieking with joy because baby just showed up….you get the idea.

She gets the epidural.  I get the brandy.

  1. My brother had a hard time – watching his wife go through labor was apparently terrifying enough that he’s ready to adopt the next one. Then again, hers wasn’t an easy birth, so that probably didn’t help….

  2. No. I’d rather take on a bear with a knife (BLACK bear, thank you…) than have to stand there and stand there in waiting mode. There are things the guys can do to help, and some of them are real valuable….but they’re not the main show.

  3. You’re definitely not the first guy I’ve heard say that. Personally, I’m relieved that when we have a kid I’m going to be the one pushing – that’s way easier emotionally (if not physically) than watching the love of my life go through it.

    With neither of my kids was I just waiting and doing nothing, but certainly I wasn’t the one doing the hard work. The Mrs. did the first one without and epidural and the 2nd one completely naturally (no meds). Of course every birth is different but I was there to serve which may have taken my mind of other aspects of the event.

    The two of you will do fine. All the best.
