Childbirth is a beautiful experience for everyone involved, but it can also be a bit. . . traumatizing (for some).

New mom Alisha Baxter, from Australia, posted a photo of her husband Jive to the Today Facebook page that pretty hilariously sums up what some men go through during labor.

“I thought I’d share this photo of my partner while I was in labour. [Every time] I look at his face and how squished his fingers are I crack up 😂😂,” Alisha captioned.

Alisha’s cousin took the hilarious photo of Jive as Alisha was pushing, and their baby’s head was about to show.

‘He wasn’t saying anything, he was just really nervous. Before we were in the birthing suite he had a little moment crying because he couldn’t help me through the pain. Once he finished having his moment and it came close to me pushing he was great,” Alicia told Daily Mail Australia.
