Now Dads Can Experience Pregnancy Too

Future dads can experience the sensations related to pregnancy, feeling the baby as it moves and kicks. The diaper company Huggies and a team of US researchers created a pair of pregnancy bands for expecting couples that replicate any baby movement felt by the mother on a matching band for the father. 

The belt placed on the woman's belly is connected to a second belt positioned on the man's abdomen. The system, filled with electronic sensors and LED lights, transmits in real-time the baby's movements to the father. The pair of pregnancy bands was created solely for a Huggies advertising in Latin America, which shows real couples trying out the bands in a Buenos Aires hospital. The soon-to-be dads are both emotionally and virtually touched!

Should men be able to give birth to children?
