You can now purchase a special selfie stick for when you give birth and seriously, is there a need?
Giving birth is a life-changing experience.
And everyone who has ever done it will no doubt tell and re-tell the story of their labour and delivery to anyone willing to listen. I know this was the case with my own two births for sure. Sorry, random people who had to hear all about my quick labours/big babies/unmedicated vaginal births!
But guess what – now you can go one step further, mums. Now you can actually share the live-action as it happens – thanks to a brand new birthing selfie stick, allowing you to capture not only your own changing expression, but also 'share every angle of your child's birth.'
Sounds a little horrifying? I know.
“You can be sharing everything with Birthie Stick”
“A baby’s arrival is a magical event. And there’s only one chance to get the shot. 'Birthie Stick' is sturdy and fully adjustable, allowing you to capture every contraction with confidence,” the product description on Amazon reads.
The inventor, Brandi Rae James, said to Kidspot in Australia: “Why selfishly live in a moment when you can be sharing it with the world?”
“That question is what led me to create the Birthie Stick. After watching too many boring, low-quality delivery room videos, I knew my angel’s arrival needed breakthrough, cinematography,” she continues.
“Birthie Stick raise the production quality of any birth and I have the likes to prove it,” she adds.
Okaaaay, I can hear you think to yourself.
However, it looks like it is all just a big joke.
Because although you can actually purchase this product on Amazon for an impressive $7.99, in reality, it’s only an empty box.
Created by Prank Pack, the product is only fictitious and is designed to prank friends and family during the festive season.
“Simply put your real present inside the joke box and try to keep a straight face as you watch your friends and loved ones attempt to remain gracious while thanking you for the Prank Pack,” the actual product description reads.
“Then watch them explode with laughter when they discover their actual stuff inside and realise they have been pranked.”
