Surely, some men will watch this and think that they would be able to do better, but there is much more involved than just the contracting of the uterus (the largest set of muscles in the body and men will never have them). There are other sensations, many would say pain, that come up in various parts of the body, and there is also a huge emotional factor that contributes. If you are frightened or anxious, dehydrated or have a full bladder, it all comes into play. There is so much involved, but this is still worth a look.
I say too bad men can not go through labor. Not because they deserve to suffer, but because it is really a privelege. Women can’t truly remember the physical component of how they felt during labor, but the emotional component never leaves us. That’s why, as a doula, I am working to help women create positive memories.
