I have always appreciated my wife, but for a moment during the labor, I thought I might lose her. She is a great mum and does it with apparent ease - All the best bits of Smallsteps come from her side
The "hang up on the washing line" bits, are all me :D
I think in the west and general world now, we are somewhat "spoiled" by medicine and a lot of us have forgotten how dangerous childbirth can actually be. It gives us a false sense of security.
