What a mess! He retched all over the delivery room floor. Makes you wonder which is more disgusting. Baby gunk or vomit? But the dad did step in at a crucial time.
He caught the baby and gave it to a nurse, the handoff was swifter than a quarterback on the line of scrimmage with the clock ticking. At that point, he might have secured the title of dad hero, but no, he blew it.
And Another One Down
Who knew Dads are so swoon-prone? Do they faint all the time or just when they witness their child coming into the world? Maybe there needs to be some sort of preventative care for dads in delivery rooms.
Along with Lamaze, he ought to be practicing breathing techniques or whatever it takes to prevent dad from hitting the floor.
Another Dad Bites the Dust
It is true that some husbands don’t like it when their wife is getting the bulk of the attention. Some men do want to make it all about them. It seems like they’re working it to score some extra sympathy action.
This guy, however, legit passed out from the "official-sounding malady of vagus nerve overactivity," a.k.a., a vasovagal medical condition. It’s safe to say that this was probably not the attention he was looking for.
Branded with a Star
We’re not labeling moving boxes here. Dad is marking his territory on a newborn infant. To be fair, infant swaps have happened. It is rare, but in the U.S. eight baby switch incidents occurred between 1995 and 2008.
Now that DNA is easily tracked, we can see proof of baby swaps. In 2021 a Spanish woman found she was not related to her parents by DNA analysis. She had been switched at the maternity ward in 2002. She sued.
The Epidural Needle Strikes Again
Yet another dad is dragged up off the delivery room floor for fainting. It is a long needle. We get it. But delivery had not even begun, and he’s already laid out on the floor.
And this dad is out cold. It was not simply a woozy feeling that overcame him and forced him to sit down. He lost consciousness completely. Which, presumably, is fortunate for this guy since he was spared from hearing all the nurses in the room laugh at him.
