Birth Reaction Assessment (Video)

Posted by , under VIDEOTAPE

True story. We made a “Universal Birth Reaction Assessment Tool” diagram back in May that demonstrated the various reaction levels that men go through witnessing the spectacle of childbirth.

So, we thought that today, marking the birth of our channel on Kin Community, would be the perfect time to show you our video version of that chart and give a chance for anyone with less of an attention span to get the same “helpful” advice. It’s a channel designed just for women, so this is our contribution. Our channel is like “The View” except with a jock strap and NERF guns. Go figure…

The two of us wouldn’t trade seeing our respective sons come into this world for anything. I know I wouldn’t have let anything stop me from watching my son actually being born. It changed my life.

    Hahaha hilarious! Bert stayed by my head the entire time, he “didn’t need to see it”. And if they had offered me a mirror, I would have declined too πŸ™‚
    I’m sure it’s wonderful and a miracle and beautiful and all that, but we both didn’t really need to see how my body was ripped, wrenched, torn, pushed and cut open, thank you very much.

    Heh. I lol’d on the grip. Most men are startled by it. I was an EMT in a prior life and my instructed for training said to ignore everything in the book on comfort and management. The two things we needed to know were they all poop and give them two fingers to grip, no more no less. 1 finger and they will rip it off. More than two and they will break them.
