Men try the pain of giving birth - level 1

Giving birth is not easy. It is very painful. Fathers cannot feel the pain. Only mothers can. However, fathers can try it. A hospital in China lets them.

A nurse puts special pads on a man’s belly. These pads carry electricity, and the man feels pain.

One man says that it feels really painful. He says it is like your organs are pulled apart.

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Would you try this? :-)
