Ouch! Chinese hospital gives men a taste of birth pain


When it comes to bringing a new life into
the world, there are few who would argue that women don’t get the raw end of the deal. Well mums, now a hospital in China is giving
would-be fathers a chance to get an idea of how it feels to experience one of the tougher
aspects of becoming a parent – giving birth. Aima hospital has decided to offer taster
sessions where men could experience something of the pain of giving birth. Pads attached to a device are placed above
the abdomen carry electric shocks that the hospital says create a feeling similar to
that of giving birth. Once the electric current begins to flow,
the fathers-to-be writhe in agony as the nurse gradually steps up the intensity of the pain
on a scale of one to ten. Basically it felt really painful, I feel like
giving birth to a child is actually really not that easy, it felt like my heart and lungs
were being ripped apart, it was basically really painful, you can’t even describe how
painful it was. Compared to Europe and North America, Chinese
men are relatively absent from the process of giving birth. Some state-run hospitals still don’t allow
men to witness the birth of their children.
