Laboring With the Father

In American culture, fear surrounds pregnancy, labor, and the delivery process. Take a look at any of America's most beloved tv shows; Friends, The Office, Meet the Midwife, even Game of Thrones. Every single show has child birth portrayed by screaming women writhing around and rushing to the hospital right after their water breaks. It never fails that the mother then has some sort of complication or the baby's life is in danger.
