That’s daddy, in the snorkel
A MIDWIFE has published a list of bizarre items brought into the labour ward including a violin, snorkel and mask, and Speedos.
Marie Hurworth, 26, from Newquay, Cornwall, said one dad-to-be was super keen on getting a front row view of his wife’s water birth.
The man turned up with his diving gear.
Marie said the snorkel was thrown in the bin.
Second on the list was double earphone connectors
Marie said: “They both wanted to listen to their birth music but they didn’t want anyone else to intrude on their moments.”
Number three was the mum who brought her dog.
Marie said: “A bit weird and the dog was freaked out.” At four is the Speedos. Another keen dad wanted to get into the water with his wife.
Then there was the partner who played the violin during the early stage of labour.
