This man may not live to regret sharing his opinion on epidurals and childbirth.
The unnamed father has hopefully learned an important lesson after weighing in on how a woman ‘should’ give birth.
Nicole Cliffe shared a comment posted by a man who’d witnessed his wife give birth to two children without having an epidural.

“Women don’t NEED them at all. Never have. Since we only started using them in modern medicine,” the father wrote.
You can imagine the response!
Just a couple of replies below:
– “My wife would have died in childbirth twice without necessary surgical intervention, but what do I know? —guy who held her hand in surgery.”
– “My wife wanted to do natural childbirth. I supported her. Then halfway through 37 hours of labor the pain became unbearable, so she got the epidural. I supported her. 2nd child, straight to epidural. What do I know; she was the one in pain. –Guy who could only hold her hand.”
– “I’d like to break both of his legs and then tell him that he doesn’t need pain medication because they didn’t have it in olden times.”
Last year another dad dared to claim that “the pain of childbirth is a myth and it’s really just all in our heads due to fear and anxiety.” The response he received was pretty brutal! Read more here.
