Now pregnancy can transform the calmest woman into a ball of anxiety. So she can't help it -- she has tons of questions. And once she gets the answers, she will ask them again and again. Pregnancy just nurtures the paranoid in us.
Obstetrician-gynecologists know this pretty well, and they're often cool about it. But they are only human after all, as we see in this one obstetrician.
One of her patients visited her clinic and shared a photo of a piece of paper that contained a list of frequently asked questions (FAQs) on pregnancy. The patient shared it on Reddit and has since gone viral. Why?
Let’s just say the answers on recommended pain relief during labor, guidance on recovery after childbirth, among others, are not exactly what preggos are expecting. But it is funny -- read below.
Should I have a baby after 35? No, 35 children is enough. (And we thought three was a handful!)
What is the most reliable method to determine a baby's sex? Childbirth. (It's foolproof too.)
My wife is five months pregnant and so moody that sometimes she's borderline irrational. So what's your question? (You should know better than to ask this, dad.)
Pregnancy can be a very stressful time, and a little light-hearted humor to lift the spirits is appreciated. Based on the social media comments, a lot of moms are finding it plenty funny too.
“If I get pregnant again, I want her as my OB,” said one mom after PopSugar Moms posted the story on their Facebook page.
A commenter on Reddit wrote, “Not sure if I should laugh, or cry.” (We totally agree, especially when it comes to that “pain during labor” part.)
When Babble shared the story on its page, one commenter said she was pretty sure the bit was taken from the book Babies and Other Hazards of Sex: How to Make a Tiny Person in Only 9 Months, with Tools You Probably Have around the Home by Dave Barry. The entertaining book’s description said it had a secret chant for a painless childbirth.
Maybe the book and the sign should be a requirement in all ob-gyn clinic waiting areas. What do you think?
