Two Men Get a Glimpse Into What Childbirth Feels Like [Video]

Two Men Get a Glimpse Into What Childbirth Feels Like [Video]Before I experienced my first labor pains, I really wasn’t sure what to expect. I had heard how much it hurt and the idea of all that happens didn’t sound like it was going to be a walk in the park. I have a very high pain tolerance so how it was going to feel to me — I wasn’t sure.

Then, I went into labor for the first time and understood. It’s a whole new type of pain that I had not experienced. Even after dealing with 7 kidney stones during that pregnancy, the pains of contractions and back labor were intense in comparison. It’s a pain that I can’t really describe or compare to much else — because it’s a pain with a great purpose, it is something I would go through again.

2 Dutch television hosts got curious about what the pains would feel like so — for their tv show, they put themselves to the test. According to The Huffington Post, “the two men used electro-stimulations to simulate contractions so they could experience the distress for themselves.” The two men lasted through 2 hours of contractions (which is far shorter than my 14 hour labors), but the video is priceless.
