Childbirth is an overwhelming experience for both father and mother but this things got way too much for this dad!
The Channel 4 programme 'One Born Every Minute' is eye opening stuff if you've not been involved with the birth of a child.
The reality show is popular with viewers thanks to it's honest look at child birth and labour and a sneak peek of a brand new episode showed truly what the ordeal can do to new parents...even the dads!
Dad-to-be Ben FAINTED as his girlfriend Amy gave birth and collapsed into a heap on the delivery room floor.
The cameras caught the shocking moment on camera as things got a bit too much for Ben as Amy experienced excruciating contractions.
Apparently he has been suffering a "sympathy pregnancy" in which a partner experiences some of the same symptoms as the expectant mother and Ben admitted to being very emotional since he found out he was going to be a parent.
Just as he explains how he is feeling to the camera he drops to the floor and an astonished Amy screamed: "He just passed out!".
A midwife was on hand to deliver the baby while her colleague checked Ben over and the pair were over the moon when Amy gave birth to a baby girl.
