Expecting father signed off from work with morning sickness (and grew breasts)


The days of fathers sitting in the waiting room with cigars and a hip flask are long gone but this father-to-be truly went the extra mile. As his fiancĂ©e progressed through his pregnancy, Harry Ashby starting suffering morning sickness and food cravings, and apparently began to develop breasts. Mr Ashby was diagnosed with Couvade syndrome which is where men experience the same pregnancy symptoms as their partner. The 29-year-old spoke of his experience: ‘I hated the feelings at first but now I think every man should go through it because it helps you understand what your missus is facing.’
