BOSTON — On Tuesday, a soon-to-be mom found a creative and entertaining way to beat the pains of labor.

While awaiting the birth of their second child at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Connell Cloyd uploaded this video to Facebook where Yuki Nishizawa is shown doing the butterfly, the side shuffle, the “Tootsie Roll,” the two step and other dance moves to the delight of the nursing staff.

Recorded by her husband, Yuki is seen looking radiant as she laughs away the stress and pain of childbirth.

At one point in the video, you can hear Yuki saying her “water is breaking.”

“I know I shouldn’t be laughing as a husband… but she said she wanted to be famous, so I guess this is how you do it. Doing the ‘Tootsie Roll’ in labor,” Cloyd says in the video.

The video has been watched over 300,000 times and shared nearly 6,000 times.
