Giving birth is no picnic. Whether you’re in labor for hours or the baby falls out while you’re racing to the ER, the experience is intense. That’s why you need a labor partner! Hopefully, it’s someone who is going to be present for you, hold your hand a little bit, do a crossword puzzle or read a trashy magazine with.

Look, labor can be extremely boring, especially if you’ve been induced. So it’s good to be occupied. But is bringing an entire gaming rig going over the top?

Some folks in the comments section were not impressed while others were fine with @amberscxtt’s boyfriend’s method of passing the time.

@amberscxtt defended her boyfriend, saying “you wanted us to stare at each other for 21 hours? He was available when I needed him the entire time.”
