Sure, you could always play it safe and have your wife shack up in a hospital when she’s in the beginning stages of childbirth, or, you could whip out your iPhone and begin to search YouTube for instructional videos on how to deliver it yourself! This is one Marc Stephens did, and it worked out well for him.
According to the BBC , “Marc Stephens watched the videos as a precaution when his wife Jo started to feel some discomfort. Four hours later, his wife went into labour and started giving birth before an ambulance could arrive at their home in Redruth. ‘I Googled how to deliver a baby, watched a few videos and basically swotted up.’”
Admittedly Mr. Stephens does have some very limited prior experience, given that this is his fourth child. “For our first I spent most of the time at my wife’s head, now I’m not afraid to go down to the business end.”
