Every women should have the right to choose her birth plan and whatever is best for her body, but that doesn’t mean you’re free from others injecting their opinions. Shay Mitchell’s boyfriend believes she should give birth without an epidural, but she doesn’t agree.
In the latest episode of the original YouTube series Almost Ready, which follows the pregnancy of the Pretty Little Liars star, her boyfriend Matte Babel attempts to argue that she doesn’t need an epidural because, “As a woman, your body is genetically engineered to give birth.”
Mitchell of course isn’t willing to back down from her stance that Babel isn’t the one giving birth and therefore doesn’t get to make the choice. After all, he has no idea what it’s like being pregnant, she argues back.
In order to give him a little taste of what he’s missing Mitchell dresses Babel up in a 30-pound baby belly complete with app-activated “baby kicks,” and you’re going to wish you could take one of these home to your own partner. Check out the full episode and the rest of the series here.
