It can be easy to forget about the man in your life while you're trying to push a human out of your body.

A photo of a man’s face while his wife is in labour is going viral for all the right reasons.

Alisha Baxter from Brisbane, Australia shared a photo to Facebook of her husband’s reaction while she was in labour.

Her cousin snapped a photo of the dad-to-be, Jive, pulling a terrified face and getting his fingers squashed by Alisha.

“I thought I’d share this photo of my partner while I was in labour. Everytime I look at his face and how squished his fingers are I crack up,” she wrote.

Jive commented on the photo, saying: “Us blokes go through a lot of pain as well. As you can see in my face haha.”
