There’s a ton to learn when it comes to having a baby, which is why parents always have a lot of questions for their doctors.
Obstetricians are used to giving the same information over and over about pregnancy and giving birth, which is why some doctor’s offices create helpful printouts that answer the most common questions. Redditor YellowWoodenTable recently came across such a list at her ob-gyn appointment, but the answers were just a tad bit different from what she was probably expecting.
I mean, they’re not wrong…
Here’s what it said:
Q: Should I have a baby after 35?
A: No, 35 children is enough.
Q: I’m two months pregnant now. When will my baby move?
A: With any luck, right after he finishes college.
Q: What is the most reliable method to determine baby’s sex?
Q: My wife is five months pregnant and so moody that sometimes she’s borderline irrational.
A: So what’s your question?
Q: My childbirth instructor says it’s not pain I’ll feel during labor, but pressure. Is she right?
A: Yes, in the same way that a tornado might be called an air current.
Q: When is the best time to get an epidural?
A: Right after you find out that you’re pregnant.
Q: Is there any reason I have to be in the delivery room while my wife is in labor?
A: Not unless the word “alimony” means anything to you.
Q: Is there anything I should avoid while recovering from childbirth?
A: Yes, pregnancy.
Q: Do I have to have a baby shower?
A: Not if you change the baby’s diaper very quickly.
Q: Our baby was born last week. When will my wife begin to feel and act normal again?
A: When the kids are in college.
They may not be the answers that moms-to-be are looking for, but they are pretty hilarious. Share if you think the world needs more doctors with a good sense of humor.
