Had our final Prenatal Childbirth Class today, which means school is…OUT!
And boy…did we learn some lessons.

The side-splitting walkthrough of a cesarian. (Which incidentally, is NOT the thirteenth Zodiac sign), but does include a bleeding goat and an altar.
The complex and amazing subject of breast feeding. (I’m a guy…it’s always about the boobs) 🙂

Although, as far as mammals go, I guess cows were a smarter choice. Imagine if we milked whales! Not only would it be damned near impossible to grip your hands around the teat, but how would you keep the bucket from floating away underneath it? Plus, it’s pretty hard to hold your breath and suckle at the same time. (more…)
