13. Giving birth
The miracle of birth is a glorious thing. And, of course, praise should be given to those who have made it through what can be a horrendously painful experience. But labor itself doesn’t really need to be seen by anybody who hasn’t already witnessed it – especially if they want to keep their dinner down. Unless they’re being trained to actually deal with a baby being born, that is; the rest of us, however, should just carry on as we are.
If you’re in the market for a new nightmare, try Googling “trypophobia.” Thankfully, we can safely recommend that, because not many people actively seek new ways to terrify themselves. And, therefore, not many people will ever actually Google the term for a fear of groups of holes. But if you still want to rebel, we really recommend you don’t – unless you fancy strawberries haunting your every thought for the rest of time.
