According to Hollywood Labor Pains Are A Scream!


So, I just finished watching Labor Pains with Lindsay Lohan. The movie is about a girl who pretends to be pregnant in order to keep her job. Don’t be too quick to judge the main character’s character, she is doing it because she is raising her high school sister by herself when she is in her mid-twenties. The movie over all is hilarious and fantastic. So much humor and truth about what its REALLY like to be pregnant. All the pain, discomfort, and let’s not forget embarrassing moments. However, the ending, well that’s what upset me. One of the pregnant women is screaming and screaming about how awful the contractions are, which yes they can be and most of the time are horrible and YES I too did scream with some of mine. The way Lindsay Lohan’s character responds about rushing her to the hospital and this that and the other sort of put me off. I tried to brush it off. The closing scene though, now that’s what really drove me to write this review. I really hope someone in the medical field or Hollywood catches wind of this too. She starts contracting at work. Everyone of course starts rushing her out the door. Panicking. And I hear someone yell that she definitely should get the epidural…well something to that extent, epidural was definitely pushed out there. Well Hollywood…way to scare pregnant women into thinking labor is painful and horrible and should only be done drugged in a hospital. But again, overall the film is quite hilarious and entertaining. Hollywood should however think about NOT putting out such a horrible image of labor. Maybe they should invest in some midwives and start promoting healthy pregnant women giving home births in a safe and well managed environment. Then, maybe we can start making a difference.
