RTV / NBC News Channel
If any men out there want to know what it feels like to give birth, there's a hospital in China you need to check out.
The Aima Hospital in eastern China's Shandong Province is offering men the chance to experience the pains of childbirth.
Officials say the idea came after frequent complaints from female patients that they weren't getting enough sympathy from their partners during pregnancy.
The men hold pads placed above the abdomen that carry electric shocks that the hospital says create a feeling similar to that of giving birth.
The hospital says it's become immensely popular with men.
One man who went through with the procedure said it was "really painful," and that childbirth is -quote- "really not that easy."
