A company says it is the first in the world to offer dads-to-be the chance to experience what it is like to be – in LABOUR.
The firm ‘Ultrasound Baby Face’ said their machine will show an insight into the pains women experience during birth – but would not fully replicate the true agony.
Partners who wish to show support to their struggling pregnant other-half can now pay for a 30-minute labour experience.
During that time they will have to wear a bump while carrying out a range of tasks including picking up toys and climbing over hurdles.
Then they will have a Tens machine strapped to their stomach and for seven minutes will have to endure short shocks.
This small stint compares to the hours or even days of contractions a woman has to live through.
A spokesman said: “It’s a chance for the man to show to his partner that he is there for them and to help them experience a little bit of what they’re partner is going through.
“It will hopefully be a bit of a giggle for the woman as well. Something to make her feel a bit better about everything she has ahead.”
Kate said there has been vigorous testing of the machine to ensure it’s safety.
She said: “I’ve given birth and while our machine is not as painful as contraction it will hopefully give the man an insight into what the woman is going through.
”For seven minutes they’ll have short sharp pains with the intensity increasing. I have researched whether anyone else is offering anything similar but can’t find anything.”
The new experience will be opening at the Galleries and will cost £25.
