WATCH the moment an apparently calm father-to-be suddenly keeled over in the delivery room while supporting his girlfriend through labour.
Ben, 29, fainted while watching his partner Amy, 23, push in the maternity ward at Birmingham Women’s Hospital.
The couple appear in the new series of One Born Every Minute, shares Daily Mail.
Ben – who reveals on the show how he experienced sympathy pains throughout Amy’s pregnancy and gained more than a stone in weight due to ‘craving’ biscuits and cake – initially appears calm as he helped to administer pain relief to his partner in the delivery room.
But watching her strain while in the grip of a contraction becomes too much for the father-to-be, who dramatically collapses to the floor without warning, prompting Amy to break off from her controlled breathing to cry: ‘He’s passed out!’
As a struggling Amy, teeth gritted, tells the midwife ‘I can’t do it,’ her partner suddenly slides to the floor with a thud.
Nawww poor dad. How did your partner cope watching you in labour?
