Giving birth is something expecting mothers anticipate both eagerly and nervously. It can be pretty daunting, especially for young and first-time mothers. This is why it’s important for expecting mothers to have a strong support group.
One mother in labor was blessed to have a great family who was with her, anticipating the birth of her child. The room was ready, the nurses were eager, and the woman’s family surrounded her. And while they were comforting her, the talk turned into a song — which surprisingly fit the situation really well!
The video started normally enough. It was a cheerful introduction of the cast of characters: Mommy, Daddy, Uncle, Grandma, and Auntie. Also introduced were the two nurses ready to assist the young mother. Everyone was in high spirits. The young mother had a huge smile on her face while she was lying prone on the bed.
Everyone was ready for the arrival of the new baby, but before she could make her grand entrance, her family had their share of fun. The young father didn’t even look nervous. He was excited and doing his best to liven up the mood. And then he said that the baby would come out “as soon as your mama pushes you real good.”
Somebody asked if that was the intro, and that led to the uncle spouting some beatbox sounds. The young dad joined in, and even Grandma in the back had started to get into the groove. Everyone joined in on the fun, and the young mother was no exception.
The entire family began singing “Push It,” which was originally performed by the group Salt-n-Pepa. It was first released in 1987 and was ranked No. 19 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1988. It’s considered one of the greatest songs of all time, and the group even performed it during Nelson Mandela’s 70th birthday concert.
It was certainly an apt choice for a new baby’s welcome song. The tension of the wait was replaced with a feel-good vibe that spread throughout the room, and even the grandmother was busting out her classic moves. Towards the end of the song, the father tried to imitate a mother giving birth by “pushing” downwards.
It was hilarious and made his wife laugh. It was certainly a good job, on his part, for giving her a good time during her labor. She even made a joke how the baby was going to come out dancing to the beat of “Push It.”
Fortunately, no one was caught by surprise. The baby didn’t come out while they were singing and dancing, but it certainly made the atmosphere more fun. Without a doubt, the baby would be welcomed into the world surrounded by love and people with a great sense of humor.
