Have you ever wondered what your partner or wife went through while they were pregnant?
Three fathers from the UK, Jason Bramley, Steve Hanson and Jonny Biggins, have committed themselves to wearing two-and-a-half stone baby bumps for a whole month.
The men, who are based in Barcelona, are wearing the pregnancy suits to honour mums in the run up to Mother’s Day on Sunday, March 15.
The dads, are behind a new personalised Mother’s Day book called Book of Mum.
The project involves them charting the ups and downs of impending parenthood in an online diary.
The ’empathy belly’ also comes complete with fake breasts.
Its weight is designed to put pressure on the bladder, stomach and lungs, and to cause abdominal distention and the inability to get comfortable.
This is not the first time we have heard about men wanting to feel the effects of pregnancy.
Last year, a hospital in eastern China offered fathers-to-be a chance to experience the pain of childbirth.
The study came about after several new mums complained they were given little sympathy from their partners.
It saw about 100 men signed up to for the “taster sessions”, which involved pads that were wired up to a device and placed above the abdomen, giving electric shocks that induce pain.
Unlike in the West, Chinese men are often not in the room when their partners or wives give birth.
