Young Men Watch Woman Giving Birth & Their Reaction Is Priceless (VIDEO)

LOL 70

I have a confession to make. Birth scenes have always given me the heebie-jeebies. I have a difficult time reading about them (actually, I skip through them) or watching them on TV (actually, I leave the room). So I could empathize with what these two young guys went through. The two men filmed themselves watching a four-minute birth video. And the results are hilarious. And cringe-worthy.

As the men, who look to be in their late teens or early 20s, start the video, they are perplexed that the unidentified woman giving birth is standing up. "Is it going to fall out of her?" one asks. "Nah, they're gonna catch it," replies his friend.

At first, the guys seem relatively calm -- though not exactly reverential. "That's a big woman," one observes. "She's cooking up triplets." (Uhh, that's called being pregnant, dopey head.)

But as the birth continues, their facade of cool rapidly begins to crumble. "Can we skip to the good part?" one asks before they suddenly begin screaming as if they're on a roller coaster or watching Saw IV. "Ohhh, she poopin'!" they holler -- though I give them some props for keeping their eyes open.

"It's fake, it's fake, it's fake ... " one lad begins chanting -- no doubt trying to convince himself of that. Seemingly accepting that this is reality, the boys begin hollering again. "There's some bloooooood just dripping!" one yells before beginning to dry heave.

"How do you stand that?!" one asks (reasonably enough imho).

"I'm sorry, I cannot be in the delivery room," one dude concludes. "I can't do it either, man," says his friend.

Well, at least their future wives know what to expect! Some people found this video really immature, but give the guys some credit. They're young. And I applaud them for watching it all the way through. I don't think I could have. Plus, they seem genuinely concerned about the baby. I could even see the wee glow of baby fever in their eyes. (Though maybe that's just me.)

Perhaps this video should be mandatory viewing in high school.

What do you think of their reaction? Is it funny or offensive?

I have to say that a lot of people react like that to a woman giving birth, esp when they have no idea before hand. Also, give the guys some credit, they asked some intelligent questions that should be answered for them like why she would be standing, why she's pooping and some others. Great opportunity to educate and inform people of what the process really is!

Do they not teach and show these things in schools anymore? Seemed like all the health classes (required at least in our districts schools) went through everything in your first year or so of highschool.

I give them credit. Their reactions were honest, and they obviously didn't find it easy to watch. I actually think they are adorable.

I also give them credit. They could have stopped the clip and walked away but they sat there for the whole thing.

I watched that last week. It was pretty hilarious. I had to watch a video of that in highschool and pretty much the same thing happened. Most of the guys were freaking out and the girls....well there was alot of eye rolling going on. But honestly, I think they picked the messiest, sloppiest birth ever and taped it and showed it to us because when my best friend had her baby it was nowhere NEAR that bad.

I give them credit. But then again, my science class in the 8th grade watched a movie of a woman giving birth. There was freaking out from just about all the kids, and one guy just about passed out. I remember him promising himself not to get anyone knocked up until they were married because of that video.

I totally needed that laugh today. They were hilarious. The way the one guy held his shirt up to his mouth really made me laugh, I do that when I'm watching scary movies, lol. 

Love it.

I loved the thought provoking questions: Why did she do it standing up? And I'm sure stripes ended with: Let's watch another one! These guys will make great supportive partners one day!
