    That would knock me out cold! :)

  2. George

    I’d be afraid my tears would keep me warm instead. :D

  3. Pete Tarkulich

    Hey, did you guys take Bradley Method classes? Because that’s the exact same thing we’ve gone through!

  4. Trevor Kent

    “Wait, you seem terrified. Let me explain it better. This is the size of an average baby at birth and this is the size of your pelvis. Now… Hey, why are you running away?”

  5. Chris

    SpilledInk: I’m sure your wife would wake you back up…
    George: Good point! :D
    Pete: Yep! These strips won’t do the class justice, but all in all, we appreciated all that we learned through it. Good luck, Pete!
    Trevor: Which is why I think people focus on “the magic” part of child birth…

    I think the best midwives would also be stage magicians. Lady goes into labor, walks up on a stage, magician says hello, covers her in a drape, drape comes away and she’s not pregnant anymore, magician pulls baby out of tophat, all bow for applause and the father is called up to the stage to cut the cord. In and out in five minutes and she’d never feel a thing.

    There is no logic reason to not have anesthesia for giving birth, none at all. All that “natural birth” nonsense is really just nonsense. Emotional hype over “natural” nonsense. Every woman can give birth without drugs or surgery, it’s how it worked for thousands of years. Sure, 3,000 years ago women had basically no other choice. But this is the 21st century. We have the means to make it easier for mother and child, so why not use them.

    Of course the Scrubs approach works as well: “You’ll fart, pee, puke and poop in front of ten complete strangers who’ll be staring intently at your vagina which, by the way, has an 80% chance of tearing.”

  8. Puck

    .. I think Saffy’s midwife says it best. :D http://m.youtube.com/index?&desktop_uri=%2F#/watch?v=jz1l6bj_1HI

    (her explanation starts at about 4:22.)
