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...
