Giving birth is hard for women, let’s be clear.

It’s, like, the hardest thing they’ll ever do, considering the size of the baby and the size of the area from which the baby will enter the world.

We won’t go into any more detail, don’t worry.

But do you know who else child birth is difficult for?

The men who have to witness it!

Once again, we won’t get too detailed here. It’s okay. We’ll keep this site mostly family friendly.

But guys who are trying to be supportive and sit by their partner’s side during this life-altering experience can sometimes have their lives altered as well.

There’s just a lot going on.

There’s a lot to hear. There’s a lot to think about. And there’s an awful lot to see.

Some fathers-to-be clearly handle the ordeal better than ever, and it’s safe to say that the man featured above is not one of them.

While in labor recently, Alisha Baxter took a break from pushing in order to snap a photo of her husband, Jive Ria, reacting to the intense moment.

She shared the hilarious expression on his mug via Facebook and wrote as a caption:

"I thought I’d share this photo of my partner while I was in labour. Every time I look at his face and how squished his fingers are I crack up."

Same here!

Don’t worry now, fellas. The bar for how you ought to behave while your wife is having a child has now been lowered: just avoid looking like THIS!

In his defense, Ria wrote the following:

"Us blokes go through a lot of pain as well. As you can see in my face haha."

To date, the photo featured here has garnered over 24,000 Likes and been shared over 2,000 times. It’s easy to see why!
