A couple were at a birthing class preparing for their upcoming due date.
The instructor stood at the front of the class and said: “We are going to do an exercise now to help the men sympathise with their partners. Here we have what’s called a pregnancy suit which imitates the feeling of being pregnant”. The instructor held up an artificial stomach with a strap.
She then looked around the room and asked which husband would volunteer to be the first to try it on. “I will,” said one man confidently, taking the suit and trying it on. “This isn’t too bad. I think I could get used to this,” he said as he walked around the room.
The instructor smiled knowingly and said: “That’s great. Now I would like you to bend down and pick up my pen from the floor”.
“You want me to pick it up just as I would if I was pregnant?” he asked. The instructor nodded confidently.
“Alright,” said the man as he turned to his wife. “Honey, do you mind picking up that pen for me?”
