Watch This: Men Find Out What Childbirth Feels Like

In the latest experiment for their show “Guinea Pigs,” Dutch TV hosts Dennis Storm and Valerio Zeno were hooked up to an electro-simulator that mimics the painful contractions women experience during labor. The video is in Dutch, but around the 7-minute mark, it becomes very clear that agony is a universal language. Apparently the guys underwent two…

12 Dos & Don’ts Of … Pregnancy Fashion (Just For Kate Middleton!)

The Duchess of Cambridge and I haven’t always seen eye to eye when it comes to fashion, but I’ve come to respect her more subdued style — and I understand that she’s got to rep for England, the Queen and British designers, so she’s got to be a bit more conservative than I normally like.

Todd Akin In ’08: Docs Give Abortions To Women Who Aren’t Pregnant

It’s getting to be quite the week for years-old videos to come back and bite candidates, and the latest victim is one Todd Akin, the would-be junior Missouri senator of “legitimate rape” fame.

British Soldier Gives Birth At Afghan Base Had No Idea She Was Pregnant

I’ve had a couple false alarms when my period has been poky and I’ve been freaked for a few days that I might be pregnant. So it boggles my mind that there are women on this Earth that do not know they are pregnant until their baby is basically crowning.

Girl Talk: I’m Doing IVF

I was never that woman who dreamt of having many children or starting my own “Brady Bunch.” Babies, little booties, and bottles were always an afterthought to enjoying a successful career, one peppered with travelling the world and enjoying a range of other adult activities a childless, flexible lifestyle could provide.

Girl Talk: Taking A Pregnancy Test At 36

“Rape Is Rape”: President Obama On Rep. Todd Akin’s Ludicrous Comments

“The views expressed were offensive. Rape is rape. And the idea that we should be parsing and qualifying and slicing what types of rape we are talking about doesn’t make sense to the American people and certainly doesn’t make sense to me.
