Sounds like I’m going to be in need of gas and air too

COMMENT: All agencies must to held to account for Anne Savidge’s tragic death

Have your say

Call the Midwife and One Born Every Minute are essential viewing in the

Jackson household right now.

I’m not too sure if that’s a good idea though, as the sight of women wailing in pain and epidurals being administered does bring home what will be happening to my wife in 12 weeks’ time.

On a recent episode of One Born, a vicar was present at the birth. He was very attentive, rubbed his wife’s back and gave plenty of encouragement.

Apparently, this is what I am supposed to do.

No chatting or having a laugh with the midwives. ‘Just concentrate on me’, said my wife.

Sounds like I’ll be requiring gas and air too...
