Earlier this year a video of two Dutch men experiencing the simulated pain of childbirth went viral. While men will never know the real pain of when push comes to shove, so to speak, the experiment captured people’s imaginations. But what about simulating the less painful and more joyful aspects of pregnancy?
Looking for a way for expectant fathers to feel their babies kicking in real time, Huggies Argentina developed a pair of pregnancy belts that are synched and replicate a baby’s kicks from the mother’s belly to the father’s belly. The belt took four months to develop but had fathers in tears (of happiness) within moments.
Check out the video below showing dads ‘feeling’ their baby move in a whole new way.
The pregnancy belt is not available to buy but if you were given the opportunity to give it a try, would you?
